The whole discourse surrounding the Star Wars sequel trilogy has yet to run its course. Just recently, the long-standing debate regarding the sequels' worst entry was reignited by none other than John Boyega himself after his past remark regained traction online.

A clip from the actor's 2020 interview with the hit YouTube web series Hot Ones resurfaced this week and it has left the entire Star Wars fandom into a state of frenzy. When asked to rank Episodes VII, VIII, and IX from best to worst, Boyega didn't think twice in saying that The Last Jedi was the least superior out of the three films.

Turns out, not everyone in the fandom echoes John's feelings about the Rian Johnson-directed film and it's causing quite a stir on social media.

On Twitter, many fans took major offense against Boyega's ranking, and while they also agree that The Force Awakens was the overall better flick, a lot of them believe that The Rise of Skywalker remains the worst film in the franchise's storied history.

The Last Jedi may have alienated Star Wars diehards after its release but there's absolutely no denying that the film would receive a cult-like following through the years, with some of its biggest critics eventually growing appreciative of it and what it tried to accomplish.

At the end of the day though, everything is subjective and it all goes down to which film you prefer. Expect this discourse to be fueled once again when the next Star Wars flick hits the big screen in May 2026.
