Spoilers - The Emperor is back, and we had zero foreshadowing in eps 7 and 8. They really are shooting from the hip.

This is really hard to understand for me. It shouldn't be that difficult to plan a trilogy in advance in a coherent way, being Disney and having all the money in the world.
From the outside it seems Rian Johnson made his film totally in isolation, ignored or contradicted a lot of stuff that happened in the first one and didn't care for what was coming next.
I still think THE LAST JEDI is kinda interesting in many ways but how could the Disney corporation let it happen without interference? They meddled big time with SOLO, which is in comparison a very minor film.
Maybe they'll pull the miracle of bringing it all together with RISE OF SKYWALKER in a way that makes sense, but I find it unlikely.
Even the worst of his movies, not to mention projects like the Clone Wars cartoon, are idiosyncratic and personal in ways the created-by-committee Disney products don't even try to emulate.
Agreed. I don't like the prequels for the most part but I think they're possibly better than what we're getting now and at least it was Lucas' vision.
