On his social media account, Cannavale trashed the latest movie in the popular series, stating that it was even worse than Phantom Menace, which is arguably the most unpopular installment of the Star Wars films.
On his IG, Digital Spy reported, Cannavale stated that the movie was definitely the worst Star Wars movie by far. He described it as an “absolute f*cking failure.” According to Jake, the story was littered with plot-holes and errors, in addition to terrible writing and dialog.
Jake added there was a superfluous number of “by the ways,” written into the script. Jake made his comment on his Instagram Story, so it was subsequently deleted. Reportedly, the 24-year-old actor portrays an aspiring bounty hunter in an episode of The Mandalorian, which first started in November.
