Except, it is completely the right call to make it dark. A lot of Star Wars fans love the original trilogy because of the gritty aesthetics, the cold steel feel of the empire. There are already so many light hearted, and black and white moral put into star wars, and even as a kid that was the thing I always tried to ignore. As a 13 year old, I was so disappointed in episode 1,primarily because it was goofing off so much (I’m not even willing to say it’s name). Let’s give this a fair chance please and all agree that Star Wars, as a cultural icon, deserves a deeper layer of storytelling, and especially with something like a spin off directors should be allowed to add some different colors to the palette .
