The original Star Wars was magic because they consulted with Joseph Campbell, who had done decades of study on the psychology of myths, and they applied everything he taught them to the original.
The actual shooting of the movie, plot control, and dialogue was given over to Lucas' old Teacher, Irving Kirschner, who worked in Theater and 50s-60s Film for the original trilogy. Lucas gave him a stripped down rough plot, picked the actors, and worked mostly on the SFX.
It's why the dialogue blows in 1-3, Lucas can't write it for shit. I've never seen 7-9 because it was wokeshit.
'Raiders of the Lost Ark', where Lucas was the executive producer, provided the framework of Indy's character and the essential story but Larry Kasdan wrote the screenplay and Spielberg directed it.
Don't watch any movies (at least when you have to pay)
To the point her pet project, some wokeass version of Avatar with Blacks, cancelled.
The Mouse over the past year realized she cost them billions in unsold tix and merchandise with her crew of Woke Star Wars millennial female writers and deconstructionist 'subversive' soyboy directors, most of whom admitted they loathed not only Star Wars, but all action/sci-fi films. Her literal "Force is Female" bunch of diverse millennial 30-something wamen had almost no experience - a handful of episodes for TV shows that lasted a couple of seasons at best - imposed Wokeness and stupidity into the Franchise.
She even interfered with the Mandalorian, the one show that was pumping out viewership and cash for Disney+.
Now she is stripped of power, a mere figurehead, a titular ruler, of Lucasfilm.
Overlord DVD has the details, including some easter eggs in new productions aimed at Kennedy from within Lucasfilm itself:
