I hope this isn’t true. Specifically the idea that Rey would just put the Skywalker lightsaber back together… it just seems like a cop out to the toxic side of the fandom.

Also Kylo just reconstructing his helmet. It’s just moving the story backwards instead of forwards…

Thoughts?

Well it can’t go any further back, cause right now it’s in the negative numbers of how backwards this trilogy is.

your thoughts: Did Disney kill star wars because it sounds like they did with the last jedi solo and resistance.

You know how folks say we should never have put man on the moon, because that’s the bar that everything gets judged against? Well it’s the the same with Star Wars because we had The Empire Strikes Back. If not for Empire we might find Ewoks and Midichlorians and ‘Greedo shot first’ and the conga-line of cantinas/Death Stars much easier to bear.

Hard disagree because you’re comparing butchering the original version of something to ESB being hailed as a great movie. Those two things do not equate.

I understand fans’ frustrations with Rey’s sudden abilities, but did we really need another training montage?

No, but we needed an explanation because these films are claiming to be the 7th and 8th part of a 40 year old episodic saga and they don’t seem to care about anything set up prior.

It’s really no wonder so many people see these films as corporate fan fiction.

If TFA and TLJ were just stand alone spin off movies most people would probably dismiss them like they did Solo, but the problem is they’re saying this is the “sequel trilogy” despite advancing nothing of narrative substance in the broader context and actively going out of its way to undermine everything that came before.

I maintain that in twenty years the only thing this trilogy will be recognised for is the biggest wasted opportunity in cinematic history. They had endless potential and could have done literally anything, but instead went for a quick nostalgic cashgrab that’ll age like an opened can of beer. Unbelievable.

I’m personally in a weird spot because I loved Rogue One and really liked Solo, but have hated every other piece of material we’ve been given. At this point as far as I’m concerned the saga is I - VI and the only thing I’m interested in is the spin off movies and upcoming shows. More power to you if you’re looking forward to IX, but it just ain’t for me.

I agree with you but I do like the Vader comics

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set

I don’t know if this was brought up, but once Harmy finishes up a V3.0 of ANH, will you too revisit your Blu-ray edition? Like adding or fixing anything because I do have some notes, but I need your permission to proceed or if you want me to PM to you, whatever you want.

Solkap seems to be in charge of this now. If only because I haven’t seen NVC anywhere on OT.
