Let’s just say that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and The Last Jedi left the audience confused. Even though the kids loved them, the adults who were kids when the watched the original trilogy and the prequels had mixed reviews about them. But, one of the actors from the Disney sequels has come out and said he loved The Rise of Skywalker as well as The Last Jedi! Let’s see what he has to say.

Chewy defends the Rise of Skywalker!

The Chewbacca actor Joonas Suotamo played Han Solo’s trusted companion in all three of the Disney sequel trilogy. And he loved working so much on them that he came out and defended The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. He went on Twitter and said:

I woke up to see that #TheLastJedi and #TheRiseOfSkywalker are both trending.

Debating movies is a healthy and natural part of filmmaking, but I loved working on both of these films and collaborating with everyone involved.

I might be biased though. Rawrrgh!

Along with this tweet, he shared a picture of himself in costume as Chewbacca alongside JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson, the directors of the sequels including The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.

However, by defending the two films, he also started a debate among the fandom. Fans were replying underneath the tweet, sharing their opinions of which one was better.

Now, they were not perfect films by any means, but nor were they disastrous films. In the case of The Last Jedi, it was a conflicting movie, which depicted a change in direction for the Star Wars Universe but couldn’t execute it well. On the other hand, The Rise of Skywalker was a completely reactionary film that focused solely on the fan outrage over The Last Jedi. It scrapped a lot of what the first two films of the sequels achieved. And it did so quite poorly. Therefore, in my opinion, The Last Jedi takes precedence over The Rise of Skywalker.
