Star Wars is a space opera film series with a huge worldwide fandom and a massive impact on pop culture. The films spawned many spinoff comics, books and TV series, and in 2014 it was rebooted when LucasFilm sold the property to Disney. This created two continuities: Legends (everything pre-2014) and Canon (everything post-2014).

The Disney Era (2014-present)

In 2012, it was announced that Disney had purchased Lucasfilm and it's properties including Star Wars for $4.05 billion. Production began on many new productions within the series. Following the Disney purchase of 20th Century Fox studios and HULU, in November 2019, the Disney+ streaming service premiered with "The Mandalorian", a new Star wars television series.

Reception by fans

The reception of the Disney Era (particularly the Sequel Trilogy) also encouraged fandom re-evaluation of the Prequel Trilogy.

[haltraveler, 2020 Tumblr post]
The cast of the Original Trilogy had cliched, boring character concepts that were executed wonderfully enough for it not to matter.

The cast of the Prequel Trilogy had interesting concepts that were executed poorly enough to make them seem utterly stupid.

The cast of the Sequel Trilogy had amazing, thought-provoking concepts that were executed in the town square and put up on pikes as a warning to others.

This is actually probably the best summary of star wars I’ve ever seen [1]
