It’s like so many other long-standing franchises that have a cult following. You just can’t win for losing while trying to be the slightest bit creative.
So maybe they shouldn’t try? Leave the originals and make some new franchise instead of trying to reboot an old one.
Just a thought.
That is literally “some people just don’t want any new Star Wars movies”. If you think that way, why don’t you just not watch the new movies?
I didn’t say I think that way.
I’ve said in this very thread how much I enjoyed TFA.
I’ve also said that for all its faults (in my perception) there are things about TLJ that I like.
But I’m also of the opinion that the OT was fine as it was, the story was complete, and we didn’t actually need these new films from a story point of view.
If at any point between 1983 and 2015 you’d asked me would you like to see Episodes 7-9 or just stick with 4-6, I would have undoubtedly said ‘hell yeah gimme 7-9’, but that doesn’t mean it would have necessarily been the right answer. Sometimes what you want isn’t what you need and vice versa.
Also, my post was intended to apply to all classic franchises. Maybe we should follow the advice of TLJ and ‘let the past die’. Make some new stuff, move on. (I’m philosophising and not leaning one way or the other).
