The Sequel Trilogy could have been all about a Roses not like other girls shirt sausage fest like it was in PT and ST era but Disney made their business to make it about Mother and Son, a deliberate mirror to the wound in the myth which was started because Anakin was seperated from his mother Shmi. They also made it their business that the Trilogy be viewed and prioritize Female Gaze and Rey, a rank outsider ( for now) in order to heal the broken family and have her own Heroine’s Journey( Maureen Murdock) They could have made the Trilogy about Han or even Luke and their angst at failing their son and nephew respectively and Leia being an adventure centric general like that was the case in OT , where Leia’s grief for Alderaan doesn’t even exist.
This is why i like the Disney era Star Wars. JJ Abrams and Roses not like other girls shirt Rian Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy know exactly what they are doing and they made sure to keep women-centric narrative a priority despite the fact it comes with a risk of alienating some fanbase who are used to “male centric” and “hardbaked-in their conception sexism-Fantasy” stories. Never knew i needed” Ne-Yo from the movie The Princess and the frog. It is one of the most beautiful songs i have ever heard. Not just amongst Disney songs but it is a one of its kind song. The lyrics are so beautifully written and the rythem is so soothing. And to top it all Ne-Yo made it perfect.
