A short comment on present-day "Star Wars"
You can go to YouTube, view the commentary on Star Wars (and especially "Star Wars Celebration 2023"), and come to one conclusion: Star Wars is interesting because it's a microcosm of capitalist America in decline. Star Wars, like capitalist America, is now big money production costs, rushed production facing deadlines, and the complete absence of imagination. (This is at least what you see in your politicians, though the saving-grace for the politicians is that they can command the coding of new money, whereas Disney execs cannot do that.) The original premise was entertaining if hokey, the prequels were permissible, and Dave Filoni's contributions (e.g. "The Clone Wars," "Star Wars Rebels," "The Mandalorian") were and are sometimes meaningful. But what you see with the rest of Star Wars, as with capitalist America in general, is a short-circuiting of the commodity cycle. They are in such a hurry to produce that they are jumping right from raw materials to trash, and avoiding commodities altogether. And they are now promising us more great loads of trash in the future! Thus what you have with the Disney version of Star Wars, as with capitalist America, is a failed business model.
Certainly you are familiar with the commodity cycle. The capitalists view the world as "nature," which is a shorthand for "natural resources." Natural resources are not in fact the whole world. The world is altogether something amazing, and capitalism is a far less interesting aspect of it: a perversion of "making a living" that might have worked for awhile. Rather, natural resources are instrumental reason, capitalist strategy applied to the world. Thus the capitalists cycle the world from natural resources to unrefined raw materials to refined raw materials to commodities to waste. Thinking of the world this way is so natural, so thoroughly shoved into the collective unconscious, that people only think about it when there's waste. Our world is filled with pollution, waste, and planned obsolescence. Whaddaya know.
Now and then, attempts to rectify the commodity cycle are made through the recycling of trash. Similarly, much of what counts as new Star Wars content is the recycling of old Star Wars content. Awhile back, the philosopher Cornelius Castoriadis (1922-1997) wrote an essay called "Postmodernism as Generalized Conformism," in which he characterized our era of history as one of conformism and the death of any sort of divergent imagination. Nearly all of Star Wars new content today exists to prove Castoriadis right. And of course the point being made here is not just to critique Star Wars; Star Wars is typical of corporate entertainment. See the Critical Drinker's series on "Why Modern Movies Suck."
You will hear of attempts to save Star Wars with good content, many of them led by a sympathetic character named Dave Filoni. Filoni is fighting the system while conforming to its premises. Eventually the deadlines will get to him.
