Luke had a spectacular arc to his life more realistic, meaningful and moving than the dream of Super Jedi Lord. Mark Hamill hit that performance out of the park and he had great material to work from. Han was Han to the end but older and wiser. His last scene he was the inspiration and motivation of the next generation of heroes and villains. His final scene was heartbreaking in the best way and inspired the new generation and set them both on their path. I can't believe anyone could have a problem with Leia becoming the General she always was and fighting to save and inspire the Galaxy from new threats, and using the force in amazing ways.
Their fates are not "and they lived Happly Ever After. The End." Because things didn't end. The universe and life went on and there was 30 years of love, life and peace that they won. And after 30 years new threats arose that had to be fought and new sacrifices made to stop them and new Heroes inspired by the old rising up to meet them.
The sequel Trillogy has been absolutely wonderful and downright reverent to those old characters by keeping them at the core of the story, letting them live and change and fight and triumph and die being heroes, because that what heroes do and what they should do.
-ZacWilliam, Disney's been doing a wonderful job with the sequels, by far some of my favorite SW stuff and I grew up loving the first three dearly. Empire Strikes Back has been my favorite film of any sort basically my whole life. Last Jedi easily joined it in my Top three favorite SW things ever.
