The end part is easily the best and is the only reason it's not Phantom Menace levels of mediocre. Again, my opinion. Whenever I see the crap spouted online that Star Wars is dead,I shake my head. Things ebb and flow with any franchise. If this franchise could survive the Holiday Special and Jar Jar, it'll survive anything. Well to be fair to Kasdan,he and Abrams were under a ridiculously tight deadline because Disney wanted TFA out by May 2015. Thankfully they and Kennedy were able to push it back to December,but they wanted a May 2016 launch. I think a big part of the reason we got Death Star 3 (aka Starkiller Base) was because they were pressed for time. Apparently there was an entire plotline dropped involving Leia sending an envoy to the Hosnian System to try and lobby some support from the New Republic and a plotline involving the resistance having their own superweapon and the ramifications of that,but both had to be dropped and why we basically ended up with the New Hope clone TFA turned out to be. They literally ran out of time. I feel a lot of the issues with this sequel trilogy could have easily been solved had they just stuck to George Lucas's three year gaps between films production wise,at least as far as the main saga. I personally thought SOLO was pretty darn good and that was pretty much all Kasdan and his son. It's a pity once again Disney botched the release and marketing to the point it was nearly guaranteed to at least underperform.
