A good proxy test for the tone of a Star Wars movie is the demeanor of the featured droids. R2-D2 and C-3PO carry out a cheerful buddy comedy in a movie that is about friendship and hope triumphing over evil. BB-8 is a version of R2-D2 that’s been multiplied by itself several times over until it’s nothing but a roly-poly kids toy, there to enhance the “Holy shit, I’m watching a Star Wars movie again!” high of Force Awakens. The soldier droids from the prequels were pointless and stupid, and, well, you get the idea.
