Do you feel like Disney ruined Star Wars on purpose and if so, why? Posted on May 25, 2023 by Anonymous Do you feel like Disney ruined Star Wars on purpose and if so, why?
Star Wars is better than it's ever been, so no.
Disney shills waste no time, do they?
It's pretty obvious yesterday all the Lucasfilm shills came out to defend a lot of Disney-era Lucasfilm stuff because there's growing problems inside and looming threat of layoffs
Star Wars is a pillar of culture. Everyone could talk about star wars together. Hell there was even May 4th. But now? Star Wars is a bipartisan political issue and the only ones who pretend to like it as it is are ones invested in the Disney corporation (the fierce advocates for trans and sexual kids) politically.
But there’s more to it other than simply destroying the camaraderie that Star Wars brings, when they bought Lucasfilm they are obligated to produce X amount of media related to that IP or they lose the rights, so they hastily slapped together some awful story that only serves to eradicate and humiliate the original characters and make them and their families all die in vain probably like 6 months after they bought the rights and queefed the “movie” out a year later. They HAVE to make these films and they have a timeframe to do it which compounds their existing agenda of turning a beloved pillar of culture into some divisive and controversial topic no one brings up outside of your clique.
Then there’s federal bailouts. Each time these products flop (all of them besides TFA) Disney gets a bailout of printed tax dollars equal to the amount that they projected were gonna make from the movie. It’s a lot more profitable for them to produce flops that are guaranteed to make bailout money as in order to make real money you have to make a good movie. The only reason TFA made money was because it was NEW STAR WARS so everyone had to see it, but most of those viewers didn’t wanna see any more after. But all these federal bailouts that add up to billions of dollars are printed by the government, lowering the value of the dollar, and while this is no skin off the nose of a trillionaire conglomerate, the layman suffers (milk is almost 10 bucks a gallon). Weakening normal people is their goal so it’s a double edged sword of destroying culture and crippling the economy all while profiting off spook funny munny.
Everything you posted is correct but Milk is just barely averaging below $5.00 a gallon, get offline and live in reality.
Lmao i cant stop laughing at this. Good bait.
I really pity the npc's that liked the slop disney put out. Imagine your standards being that low.
ESG and civil rights legislation
star wars is the original trilogy and that's all
not trying to be an elitist, but everything that came after is corporate sterile capeshit shit
This guy fucks
And they even ruined that with the edits nobody wanted or asked for
This but the prequels
>NOOOOOOO THEY FIXED SHIT THAT WAS ALWAYS A PROBLEM? I'M GOING INSANE AAAAAAAAAA
>FIXED SHIT THAT WAS ALWAYS A PROBLEM?
Yes Mos Eisley consisting of 3 sparse shots is a problem
Yes lightsabers changing colors between shots is a problem
Yes the Ewok eyelids not functioning properly is a problem
Yes a subpar puppet that didn't work as intended is a problem
How is a problem and for whom?
I suggest it was a problem for Lucas, and Lucas alone, and the nature of the problem was him not having enough money in his bank account.
For anybody who actually appreciates worldbuilding and attention to detail
Those are vanishingly small improvements compared to the major changes everyone complains about.
Yeah, I remember watching Return of the Jedi as a kid and thinking what a PROBLEM it was for Anakin Skywalker to be so OLD as a Force ghost! It bothered me for YEARS until they edited the movie to feature Hayden Christiansen instead. Now I can rest easy knowing that Darth Vader's redemption was actually hollow because he reverted to his appearance before turning to the Dark Side instead of appearing as he was when he died like Obi-Wan and Yoda both do. Bravo, Lucas, thank you for FIXING this GLARING PROBLEM that existed for 40 years!
>a random guy should show up instead of anybody we actually know
Explain why he doesn't look like this
>a random guy should show up instead of anybody we actually know
From Luke's perspective, Hayden Christiansen is the random guy he doesn't know.
>Explain why he doesn't look like this
Because it's a standard trope in religious teachings and fantasy writing that when someone is redeemed and moves to a positive afterlife their body is made whole.
>From Luke's perspective, Hayden Christiansen is the random guy he doesn't know.
As is Shaw, Vader didn't look like that. Remember what was said earlier?
>Now I can rest easy knowing that Darth Vader's redemption was actually hollow because he reverted to his appearance before turning to the Dark Side instead of appearing as he was when he died like Obi-Wan and Yoda both do.
>as he was when he died
So he should look like this. But that's not the argument is it?
>Because it's a standard trope in religious teachings and fantasy writing that when someone is redeemed and moves to a positive afterlife their body is made whole.
Ah, so if anything he should look like how he did *before* he was maimed and disfigured and had much of his body replaced with machinery.
That are bitched about all the same as the 'more severe' changes.
>Ah, so if anything he should look like how he did *before* he was maimed and disfigured and had much of his body replaced with machinery.
No, he should have his current body made whole to indicate that his present self experienced a genuine redemption. Sending him back to a state "when he was good" or "before he was maimed" implies that his present self was beyond redemption and had to be reverted to an earlier stage in his life.
>No, he should have his current body made whole to indicate that his present self experienced a genuine redemption
So he had to grow his hair back, regrow all his lost limbs and body parts, and start wearing Jedi robes as a Force ghost. Okay.
So why can't he look younger too, instead of like a man who was older than Obi-Wan but also his apprentice and Luke's father?
Why didn't Obi-Wan look like Ewan McGregor?
A question with the same answer of “why is Anakin in Jedi robes instead of the armor he died in?”
Because the Vader armor is evil and Jedi robes are good. It's not that hard.
>A question with the same answer of “why is Anakin in Jedi robes instead of the armor he died in
Anakin died in his Jedi robes. It's symbolism.
>So why can't he look younger too
Anakin is supposed to be in his 40s around the time of RotJ anyways, the real question is 'why should he look drastically older'
>As is Shaw, Vader didn't look like that.
Maybe if you're a faceblind autist who can't distinguish facial features behind moderate superficial disfigurement.
She probably believes she's improved it. I really wonder what's like to live in the mediocrity bubble of modern Hollywood. Anyway, I'm grateful because thanks to her I'll never care for Star wars again
KK ruined it not that I like Disney but the marvel side of things can put out stuff like guardians of the galaxy 3 but lucasfilm cannot make anything good anymore
Guardians 3 was fucking awful and proves how used to mediocrity audiences have become. The whole thing felt like 3 or 4 disjointed episodes of a lame streaming show, wake up and smelly the shitay.
on purpose, no, through incompetence yes
One is happenstance, twice is a coincidence, but three times (not counting the shows)?
when you put a retard in charge of a franchise it's going to keep being shit until you get rid of them
I hope Kathleen Kennedy becomes bankrupt and homeless spending the rest of her life sleeping on the streets covered in cockroaches suffering from agonizing cancer and syphilis.
Even if she somehow loses the millions she's made over her career (she gets points in movies she produced, for life), she has her husbands massive wealth to live off. She will never miss a bill or a meal for the rest of her wretched life. Her and Frank Marshall are some of the wealthiest people in Hollywood.
Most celebrity net worth sites over-estimate people's wealth, but I would believe for those two, it's severely under-estimated.
Everything loved by white male nerds in the 80's and 90's has been ruined by remakes and reboots and it is 100% on purpose.
I'm sure I'm missing some things, but off the top of my head, this is what I can think of.
The Thing 2011
Blade Runner 2047
Thank god Goonies is safe for now
Goonies is on the chopping block, I heard.
I shudder when I think about how they will desacrate BttF when Zemeckis dies.
Imagine if they did a dark and gritty reboot of Revenge of the Nerds, but instead of the original story, after the panty raid, they all get arrested and go to prison for sexual assault.
Except Back to the Future. The only IP that's remained untouched. You just know they're going to remake it once Zemeckis and Gale are dead.
They are frothing at the mouth to ruin that shit.
I mean, imagine what they'd do going back to 1955 in a modern one.
BTTF reboot featuring a black girl as Marty. She goes back to the 1955 and experience muh racism. Doc Brown is also a black scientist, but all his white peers dismiss him because of muh racism. Incest and rape plot line are erased. Starts rapping during the school dance and invents hip hop.
>Doc Brown is also a black scientist
In this remake, in order to subvert expectations, the character will be renamed "Doc White."
This. There's a very obvious effort to dismantle white media. Would have sounded retarded several years ago, but white people can't have shit anymore. Even Tom Clancy adaptations get the same treatments.
Ironically, I've been replaying the class stories in SWTOR lately and the writing in them make the Disney Wars look like Tumblr fanfic. Even the pretty well hated Trooper storyline at least presents a concise plot and more than a few appreciable character moments and actual growth in a few companions. If Bioware and EA could pull that off, there's no excuse for Disney. It literally has to be on purpose.
It's not even just
It's anything aimed at boys and young men. The message is "You have already been conquered". It's part of subjugating the population. They don't want any more "let's roll" types trying to stand up to the terrorists.
So this. And its unnoticed by anyone but the ones already critical of the culture. Normies dont even know the mass depression, narcissism and delusions suffered by them and their peers are highly influenced by deliberately shitty demoralizing media.
Hey, don’t sully the name of tumblr fanfics by comparing them to ~~*NuWars*~~.
>Would have sounded retarded several years ago
No, you just weren't paying attention or listening.
Don't know if I agree about comic books, unless you're only counting the heavy hitters like Marvel and DC. The last time I was in a comic book store, it was filled with plenty of independent artists and writers who are still the antithesis of being pozzed.
Hell, I think comic stores may be the last holdout/refuge of unapologetic nerddom.
buuu huuu she ruined muhhh goyslop for adult children buuu huuuuu
Lucas is a lot of things but he's not a garden gnome who made malicious media to train White kids wrong in purpose.
Maybe you should lurk before posting
Maybe you should take your meds.
Explain how pre-Disney star warsis goyslop
It's fascinating how S1 of The Mandalorian was a success since KK was busy ruining episode 9. She then realized Mandalorian was the only popular Star Wars content, so she decided to start meddling and add her influence. S3 then turned into complete shit.
turned into shit cause Favreau is a hack
sure thing, chud.
cowboys vs aliens
My thing is that there is room for a strong female character in most fiction. But why does it ALWAYS insist on being at the detriment of the established male leads? Rather than actually bring women up, they tear men down to the level of women. It's fucking retarded.
The panty raiders would 100% be all white and the guys who catch them and turn them into the police would be all black and then the girls end up with them.
you will never be white
You will never have a soul.
It turned to shit as soon as TCW characters started showing up.
2. Because they wanted to transform it into a political platform and vehicle.
The problem is, it died faster than they thought, and just helped to wake people up and radicalize them away from The Left because they fucked with something normal people really really didn't want fucked with.
So based Kathleen I guess.
>Because they wanted to transform it into a political platform and vehicle.
>IT WAS ALWAYS POLITICAL!!!!
There's a difference between allegories about totalitarian regimes throughout history and
>Men bad; women good
You can blame the "left" if you want, but the reality is this is an upper class thing. They believe they are good people making a positive difference by ruining this shit. They are desperate to justify their unjustifiable wealth, so this is what we get, ESG and other feel good shit that ruins things for normal people but makes rich fuckwits feel so enlightened.
Same with the chud shit. Actual leftists view them as a side show by the bourgeois to distract people and to break up lower class cohesion. Right wing retards are too busy using them to smear their ideological enemies that they play right into the hands of their actual oppressors.
And yet both the upper and lower classes do exactly the same thing - steal wealth from the middle class. In fact, a big part of lower classes are so retarded, they actually think middle class is the upper class.
Wealth doesn't exist without labor. Poor people make up the majority of the labor pool.
They aren't stealing so much as taking back their fair share of the profits they earned for everyone. If we had socialism, there wouldn't be any poor.
>They aren't stealing so much as taking back their fair share of the profits
Taking from the middle class is taking THEIR share. It'd be taking from the rich that would be internally consistent with what you just put forward
Middle class is rich though.
If you work for a wage, chances are extremely good that you are working class.
the reason is an uncompetent resentful woman with a giant ego and a folders full of nasty shits done by the Hollywood higher up.
No, the vast majority of women are simply retarded.
No, that implies they care. They don't. They just correctly assumed they could milk it for lots more money.
Surprised there aren't as many shills ITT.
Her sole reason making the Sequels was to butcher Luke (who is now no more than a cautionary tale) and let female character take his place
Within weeks of finalizing the deal with Lucas, they said they were going to shitcan all the original SW characters.
They wanted to ruin Luke Skywalker and replace him with a women, on purpose, the ruining of Skywalker is on purpose. They weren’t trying to ruin Star Wars persay.
They are also just really fucking bad at sci-fi
They think you can just hire off the shelf Hollywood directors for your sci-fi, you can’t, you need someone with a little tism in them, but now too much, someone who has experience with creature work blue collar artists, and has the right passion for the work.
JJ and the other meme directors they hired look good on paper but they treat sci-fi like just another project, they lack that certain sparkle and drive for the style to get it done.
Arrogance and stupidity.
Why did you cut out the left girl’s big titties?
I got it from google.
Nahh … as long as they are willing to pour their assets into the sakes of creativity, they totally are going to be freaking Oooookay !!!!!!
>Do you feel like Disney ruined Star Wars on purpose
Yes, I thought this was obvious to anyone with half a brain.
>and if so, why?
Because of Blackrock's ESG bullshit. So, in other words, it's all just garden gnomes garden gnomeing.
Look at what she did to Indy? That fucking trailer is atrocious. This just proves she wants to destroy everything ILM/Lucasfilm made because she’s a bitter cunt. If you think the state of SW isn’t her fault you’re fucking retarded and probably work for Disney.
>I am forgotten……
Remember when she forced us to awkwardly watch Dr. Grant have dinner with his ex-girlfriend’s new husband and family? This whore has been on a warpath for decades. You don’t even wanna know how humiliated Grant was in JWD, I didn’t think she could assassinate his character any more than she already did but I was wrong.
I didn't watch the last world...how bad did they treat him.
Holy shit, you made me look it up and she really produced that shit
Ellie wasn't his girlfriend.
She wants to replace Indy Jones with Indy Joanna.
kinda based if you think about
Not if you're not into girls. I only watch movies and shows that have young and handsome main characters.
i hope you dont seek to imply that you are one of those capeshitters
>probably work for Disney.
I just assume this is true anytime I see anyone do this.
what again was that quote about not attributing to evil what can be perfectly explained by stupidity or some such?
Yeah, no this is all done with calculated political intent.
ruining star wars as a brand is not intentional, political or otherwise
Okay well that will be your little secret. What do you base this on? Did you miss the “FORCE IS FEMALE” shirt the executive producer is wearing in the OP………?
if they have a political message, the last thing they want to do is destroy their platform
You’re just some shill running damage control for pedophile garden gnomes who want you dead for free…. get a fucking life.
Ever hear of the scorpion and the frog?
And regardless Disney is a pillar of American culture too, or used to be, but they intentionally destroyed it and turned it into Trans Kids HQ.
Exactly. As the saying goes when in Rome… Sack the shit outta it and burn it to the ground. Not of the top executives at Disney want to either keep making good entertainment for the whole family OR make profits. They want to shit on Uncle Walt’s legacy instead. Disney as it is probably won’t be recognizable in a decade. It’s going down 4realz with help from KK herself.
>duuuuhhh there’s agjooully no political intent behind all the politics in their media chud *diddles a kid*
The thinking is that the platform can't be destroyed because it has functionally infinite money behind it and the legacy of it's cultural impact
They have enough money to make six disneys ad an unlimited number of streaming services/cable channels.
There is a reason we did "Trust busting" back in the day, it was to avoid shit companies like Blackrock owning our government.
But 4chan fags would rather cry about non-existent socialism than attack the real enemy.
Bit of both. To get money, they use DEI/ESG. DEI/ESG breeds incompetence and ruins companies.
i don't give a fuck about stah wahs and never have.
all the characters are just painfully american in the films to be some non-americans in a galaxy far far away
Everyone is British besides Luke and Han.
DEI/ESG money, guarnteed with government bailouts, is better than having to produce quality products and hoping the public likes them.
Only a retard could think it wasn't ruined on purpose.
I think it's general incompetence and industrial incest and a sense of invincibility.
No, why would they do that?
Why would they turn Luke into a weirdo attempted nephew murderer and bum instead of selling cool Luke Skywalker toys to 35 year old virgins with disposable income?
Their actions are incoherent and fly in the face of conventional wisdom or common sense. That's why we're trying to make sense of them
Has adding a bunch of woman and brown people ever made anything better?
Because the "subversion of expectations" only ever went in one way. They spent an entire movie on the character assassination of Luke Skywalker while simultaneously doubling down on the Mary Sue aspects of Rey.
Not to mention that incident where they interviewed some LucasFilm employee and they clearly had a poster of Luke with his face X'ed off in the background.
Why did they do it, or why do I feel that way?
>Do you feel like Disney ruined Star Wars on purpose
no, i think it was unintentional.
my completely baseless theory is that while working for spielberg and lucas as a "producer," none of her ideas were ever accepted or taken seriously. now that she's in complete control of lucasfilm, she wanted to prove that she's more than a glorified secretary by re-imagining star wars, indiana jones, and willow.
I just don't think the skills translated. There's a difference between producing individual movies and trying to run a studio dedicated almost entirely to a single IP. I don't think Lucas would have ever entrusted Lucasfilm to a "glorified secretary." It's possible for someone to be good at what they used to do and total shit at what they are currently doing.
>I don't think Lucas would have ever entrusted Lucasfilm to a "glorified secretary."
He sold it to Disney. He's not retarded. He knew what they were.
>He's not retarded
Are you an angel
What's wrong with that line?
Go to bed George.
Nice deflection, nerd.
I accept your concession.
He had a lot of bad lines but that neither makes him a retard, and it doesn't make every single line bad.
That's a perfectly fine line for Anni's introduction to Padme; it paints him as naive, infatuated, and leads us into his world and hopes when he expands on how he listens to pilots from far away.
Tell me why it's bad
I'm not seriously calling George Lucas a retard. I'm suggesting he's fallible. If you seriously think Lucas selecting an old creative partner and friend to run his company was part of a master 4D chess plan to destroy Lucasfilm (and worsen the lives of its hundreds of employees, many of whom he knows personally) and Disney--despite having taken lots of Disney stock--you should reexamine your reasoning. Sometimes people just fuck up, or demonstrate bad judgment. He thought she was a great candidate for the job and he was wrong. That's all.
He sold it to Disney and then in interviews immediatly following the announcement he was crying about how he sold it to "white slavers."
You can pretend he's senile, or doesn't care, but you cannot pretend he didn't know what he was doing. Like he sold the company, and then went home and thought "I don't actually know anything about Disney.." Did a quick google. And then the next day booked interviews so he could whine about how evil Disney is. It just don't add up.
>He sold it to Disney and then in interviews immediatly following the announcement he was crying about how he sold it to "white slavers."
Because he expected to have more creative influence than he did. That's the whole reason he bothered to sell Iger the sequel trilogy outline he wrote onto a mall food court napkin. It became very clear immediately that this would not be the case.
Why he sold Lucasfilm and why he sold it to Disney is all pretty obvious stuff. You don't need to invoke conspiratorial tard-logic.
What conspiratorial tard logic are you pretending I am invoking specifically?
That he sold Lucasfilm to Disney and/or hired Kennedy to purposefully sink it.
Something I have never said and is not inferrable from my post. Where I did infact say:
>You can pretend he's senile, or doesn't care, but you cannot pretend he didn't know what he was doing.
I make no assertions about why he did what he did. Just that he either knew what kind of beast Disney was, or was being willfully ignorant of said fact.
If you think he holds no contepmt for the fans after the reaction to the prequels then I direct you to him being photographed wearing a "han shot first" shirt while filming.
I don't think he did it to kill Star Wars or Lucasfilm. I think he did it to wipe his hands of the fans who turned on him. I think he sold to Disney specifically to spite them. I believe he thought Disney would make safe and kiddy star wars, which is what everyone assumed at the time.
>I think he did it to wipe his hands of the fans who turned on him.
I think you are mostly wrong. Prequel hate was at its zenith when he decided to keep on trucking with The Clone Wars. The reception to the prequels didn't stop him from pursuing a live action show at that time, either. His decision to sell had more to do with the overall state of Lucasfilm being on the decline. Lucas recognized he couldn't do this shit forever (and didn't have any desire to) but also didn't want to leave Lucasfilm high and dry, so he sold it to a company he already had a good working relationship with and that he believed had handled other acquisitions well (Pixar). He even worked Kennedy in as his successor (something Disney didn't even know he was going to do, IIRC). I really don't think he was trying to spite anybody. He wouldn't have bothered with his own sequel treatments or gotten so upset when it was clear they weren't going to use them if he was.
>. If you seriously think Lucas selecting an old creative partner and friend to run his company was part of a master 4D chess plan to destroy Lucasfilm
What the fuck are you talking about? When did I say anything vaguely resembling that?
That's what this about.
In no way does that post imply some intentional conspiracy to destroy Lucasfilms by Lucas
Why else would he hire Kennedy if he didn't think she would do a good job?
So it's entirely disconnected and not at all related to that wha post said. Got it
I thought it was a plot to crash Disney stock for a takeover. I didn't think there was a way that all those studio execs would allow KK to make those movies without a plan and without someone with story sense to veto all those stupid ideas. If it wasn't intentional then it was gross mismanagement and the shareholders should be calling for heads to roll. It was their money to burn - 4billion on anti-fan fiction. Who knows why? No actual fan considers any of it to be canon.
I think it was just genuinely hubris and complacency. They thought it'd print money regardless of what they did with it as long as it had lasers and 'splosions and advertising.
And since people in media live in perpetual fear and paranoia like a communist snitch office the USSR, nobody questions it and nobody really believes the behemoth can fail. Surely somebody will right the ship
No, I don't think it was on purpose. They jsut figured they would for some reason retain the base audience and could also attract women and fags too. Typical hubris.
Imagine for a moment being this bitch:
-year after year being the one serving coffee to the garden gnomes
-any idea that comes out of your mind is met with laughter and maybe a spank "when we need more coffee or stupid ideas we will call you sweet cheeks"
-only reason you don't get fired is because you know your boss dark secrets
-the resentment grows bigger every year
-finally the big fat nerd sells his company and you get the shot of your life
-"Now I will show these mysoginists what a strong competent woman can do!"
-your ideas make the IPs at your charge basically radioactive
-the sycophants you brought along and uses t-shirts "The force is female" reminds you when you were only the coffee girl
-it takes a couple of big fat nerds to put the franchise on life support
-you will not be the bitch of a big fat nerd again
-better burn it to the ground
this bitch must have some sort of Order 66 ready
You have no heroes.
You have no idols.
They are all evil or pathetic.
Everything you naturally admire as male is wrong.
Men admire other men. Men go towards masculinity.
Females can't do this and instead fear the younger more beautiful female. Remember snow white: who's the fairest of them all. That's what bothers them the most. Their own mortality represented by them aging and a more beautiful younger female appearing.
Men grow old but have the feeling of helping younger men as a mentor to them. The truth is men experience life in a larger range than women do.
In their attempt to push the female roster of characters, they nearly always made their male counterparts look foolish or retarded in some manner. This is sort of a normal thing in media and advertising too, like the bumbling dad who leaves their kid in a hot car or on a sushi belt and shit like that.
It's all just too much now, it's fucking everywhere.
why are you depriving me of BOOBA
Nah, it was plain incompetence.
>the force is female
ask them to define "female"
BOOM *mic drop* GOT ‘EM!
It was George who decided that Kathleen took over.
Star Wars is a multigenerational demoralization psyop
They do not know what the fuck to do with the IP
No, Disney's purchase of Star Wars turned into a spectacular failure for the same reason that the Russian invasion of Ukraine did.
A bunch of half-brained decisions made by the people at the very top who are likely almost totally disconnected from reality due to a corporate culture of ass-kissing, never receiving anything resembling a reality check, and when they finally do, they fall into the "zero sum game" trap and proceed to double down out of fear of being perceived as weak.
It's not so much "I want to ruin Star Wars for da ebil chuds" as it is "I've never been told 'no' in my life".
If events since February, 2022 have demonstrated anything, it's that the absolute worst thing leadership can do is start engaging in systemic intellectual dishonesty
They probably thought women would be interested in what they were making, Kathleen's thought process was "I'm a woman, and I like what I'm doing"
it was 100% fully intentional. there's literally no fucking way you can look at all the steps taken from when they bought the brand rights to when they finished the trilogy to now and think it was simply a series of poor decisions
>buy star wars for $4b
>state soon after that the expanded universe is fake and gay, basically telling hardcore fans to get fucked
>new trilogy planned with no overarching story or plot, just hands it over to different people and let them run with it, guaranteeing it to be incoherent
>give the first one to captain magic box to set up a bunch of bullshit that never gets explained
>give the second one to a guy who gets off on fucking with people's expectations
>give it back to the first guy for the finale even though actually finishing shit is his greatest weakness
>first movie completely undoes the victory of ROTJ because the empire is still around but changed its name
>han solo is now a deadbeat absentee father who gets murdered as thanks for trying to make amends
>luke abandons his friends after he tries killing his nephew because he got a bad vibe and dies alone on an ocean planet
>somehow sheev has returned, nullifying vader's redemption
>leia dies from ???? before she can see the rebellion's victory
>these were all perfectly fine with disney
>trilogy ends with a bad taste in everyone's mouth, fully transition to disney + shows
>mandolorian tv show ends up scratching the itch for some fans
>fuck that up to by making him the sidekick in his own show and making it generally boring
>make their parks fully sequel trilogy based because the past is dead
>announce new movie featuring rey doing shit that luke did in the eu to really drive home that this is the only star wars and WILL fuck it up how they see fit
they couldn't even be bothered to have a decent soundtrack, because that would be a redeeming feature. they WANTED total star wars death
the rose/finn kiss complimented with the explosion in the background of the base they were meant to be fighting to protect confirmed to me every fuck up was entirely intentional and borderline genius
I understand how you would wind up coming to that conclusion but I honestly think you're probably overthinking it.
The invasion of Ukraine has been nothing short of a historic calamity for the Russian Federation but I wouldn't go around saying that it was intentional on the part of Vladimir Putin and his cabinet either.
I really do think the failures of Disney, Lucasfilm, and Russia come down to the same root cause. Breeding a culture where
>the higher-ups won't take "no" for an answer
>no one is willing to tell them "no"
>intellectual dishonesty has been actively encouraged to the point of becoming an integral part of the system to function
>the accumulation of such enormous resources is taken as an excuse to "wing it" when plans go awry
>anyone who attempts to rock the boat and impede on the aforementioned swiftly finds themselves without a job, or in the Russian context, dead
soon after that the expanded universe is fake and gay, basically telling hardcore fans to get fucked
Most hardcore fans already jumped ship when they did a smaller version of the EU purge in 2008. I think that was done intentionally, too.
No, they just overestimated the number of redditors who would drink the koolaid.
Star Wars is a medium to sell toya such as light saber or legos etc. It is a success as long as it is doing that
But it didn't do that. The toys didn't sell.
its the fucking video games that are keeping it alive, ironic that the FUCKING WHITE MALE in Jedi Outcast/Survivor is keeping this shit afloat.
No. As Globohomo made everything faker and gayer, it was only natural that Star Wars would follow suit. All movies are shit for the same reason. Not just SW.
I couldn't imagine liking star wars in tyool 2023, like it actually makes me question someone's sanity if they do
god kathleen would be fuckable if she wasn't a complete retard who ruined one of the most renown franchises ever
like, imagine if she stuck to george's vision. she'd be one of the most fapped-over women on the internet
Our societies are being ruined by incompetent white women with huge egos that everybody is terrified of saying "no" to
Yeah White women are in charge kek. The reign of Karen has dawned. Lookout garden gnomes, a new ruling class is here!
On purpose? No. But hiring based on DEI and not merit or experience is guaranteed to ruin your established IPs.
