Star Wars - The Transition Trilogy

SPOILER ALERT: Skip this post if you haven’t watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The first Star Wars episodes released – 4 through 6 – are collectively referred to as the original trilogy. Episodes 1 through 3, which predate the events in the original trilogy, comprise the prequel trilogy.

After watching The Force Awakens, I think we are in the midst of the transition trilogy. The general theme of the transition trilogy? See old talent out the door as new talented is ushered in. Han kicked the bucket in episode 7. I predict Luke and Leia are in for unfortunate times in the next two episodes.

Transitions… They happen sometimes.
