12 Star Wars Moments That Haven't Aged Well
Ziro the Hutt
Possibly the silliest touch in the campy animated "Clone Wars" movie, Ziro lacks almost every factor that makes Jabba the Hutt scary. Making Jabba’s uncle an effeminate coward just feels like one of many instances in which George Lucas' sense of humor simply doesn't mesh with that of most of his fans.
Battle for Endor
"Ewoks: The Battle for Endor" is not necessarily the world's worst movie, but it hasn't aged well as canon. All the time spent in the previous movie is rendered moot when Cindel’s parents and brother die, and the presence of an actual sorceress who uses magic to shape-shift makes things even worse.
The relative disinterest of "The Last Jedi" to answer the mysteries put in place by "The Force Awakens" remains one reason that film is so divisive. Blame (or thank) J.J. Abrams, who likes to put mysteries in place while not worrying much about solving them.
Finn's privilege
Finn's character arc might be the biggest missed opportunity of the sequel trilogy. Finn, taken from his family and forced into the First Order army as a child, doesn't particularly need lectures on privilege after being slashed by an aspiring Sith Lord for overcoming his mental programming and scoring a major Resistance victory.
Han and Threepio
In "Return of the Jedi," Han Solo often feels forced into bad gags, with none more notable than his shoulder-tapping exchange with Threepio in which he keeps demanding to be translated. As soon as the droid turns to do so, he keeps tapping him on the shoulder to add more demands, finally saying, "Hurry up, will ya? Haven't got all day!"
