The messed up parts of the Star Wars franchise nobody talks about
It'd be an understatement to call Star Wars one of the most beloved film franchises of all time. It transcends that claim. The franchise is a cultural juggernaut with an influence that permeates into video games, television, and the art of storytelling as a whole. It's iconic, nothing less. However, amidst so many great moments, quotable lines of dialogue, and memorable characters, there are some moments in the Star Wars franchise that seem to get overlooked for how head-scratchingly messed up they are. Characters behave in ways that defy logic. Others hide a quiet sadism beneath cute exteriors. And, at one point in the franchise, a borderline genocide takes place. That galaxy far, far away is way more twisted than you might realize.
