Of course, that’s what most fans old enough to have sex would want from any new Star Wars movie: recapturing the virgin rush of one’s first encounters with the series—which, I suppose, is a fancier way of saying everyone wants a new Star Wars movie to make them feel like a kid again. To Abrams’s taste, that meant channeling the spirit of the original trilogy. “I know that there are many people who love and in some cases even prefer the prequels, and I know why they were necessary for George. But there was a feeling I had not had since the original trilogy that was so familiar to me and still very possible to tap into—the sense of being transported to some other place where anything was possible but that was specific to Star Wars in aesthetic, in history, in design, sound design, music. It was a very unique and specific world. I could taste and I could feel it.”
[Note: The concepts of the Gray Force, Gray Jedi, and grayness as a whole are a complicated subject that pops up multiple times and are interpreted by multiple authors throughout the now non-canon Star Wars: Legends universe. As a result, all of the accounts of grayness in Star Wars may not be consistent with each other nor are they strictly canon these days. But the point of this article is to explain the lineage of this tradition in Star Wars and explain what this could mean for The Last Jedi.]
The idea of grayness has existed at different times throughout the Star Wars universe. Below, I’ve outlined each time a significant Gray Force user or group appears in chronological order.
If you argue that the dialogue in the Star Wars prequels is clunky, poorly written and lacking personality and humanity, but say the opposite happens in the Star Wars originals, then all this does is just show your double standards.
In fact, i dare you to find FACTUALLY bad dialogue in the prequels like this example:
Lando Calrissian: Yes, I said *closer*! Move as close as you can, and engage those Star Destroyers at point blank range!
Admiral Ackbar : At that close range we won’t last long against those Star Destroyers!

One example that comes to mind is the confrontation with Count Doku in Episode 3. There is a very clear visual callback made to the confrontation with Palpatine, highlighted by Anakin’s execution of Doku being similar to Luke’s choosing to save, rather than kill his father. The issue here is that Doku was only introduced in the second act of the second film, unlike Vader who was introduced right from the start of Star Wars. Anakin has no personal connection to Doku other than that he was some asshole who cut off his arm. There’s no substance to anything.

That seems fairly reasonable, and I doubt Kurtz
would have any knowledge if that were the case. Given that Marcia Lucas
confirms that during the writing process of Jedi Lucas has Campbell’s
books on his shelf, it’s pretty reasonable to assume he was using them
as a guide. I’m really not sure what Kurtz is trying to insinuate here,
and it’s fairly silly. It’s patently obvious to anyone with half a brain
that Lucas was influenced by multiple sources when it came to Star
Wars. All one has to do is look at the motifs and themes running through
the OT, the PT and TCW to see that.
3) Lucas never was influenced by
Joseph Campbell. How the hell would Kurtz know? He wouldn’t he’s just
talking out of his butt. Lucas never states that Star Wars was entirely
based on Campbell’s work, what he has always contended was that Star
Wars, like other myths, follows certain patterns which was a central
thesis of Campbell’s. Lucas makes it very clear in the process of
working on the early drafts of Star Wars that he started to do more
research and came across Campbell:
