    we’re gonna bring back the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy but we’re gonna make him the kind of crime lord that only disintegrates people respectfully

    (I think this could be an interesting miniseries I just think it’s funny that’s the position they’re working from)

    It's hard to wrap my head around it because so much of what I grew up knowing about Boba Fett came from the EU. He was basically a non entity in the original trilogy.

    With the EU being wiped, we're back to square one with Fett, with the only character history we have coming from Mando season 2

    Disney’s fuck ups with Star Wars continue to be baffling. They just don’t know what they’re doing.

    I’m convinced if Feige didn’t exist they would have fucked up Marvel, too. Of course, they have been fucking up the video game portion of that property, too. That Avengers game should have been able to make itself but they somehow found a studio to screw the pooch on that, too.

    This is my position. If the content is good I can take more and more of it.

    Star Wars is only just now starting to branch out beyond the core universe of characters and ideas.

    I dislike content that chips away at the credibility or the import of other content (my main beef with Rebels). I don’t think that applies here, though.

    this is a trope with every long running story ever.

    The next one always has to be more powerful than the one before it. Look at Dragon Ball Z. 20 years ago, Goku going Super Sayain to beat Frieza was the biggest deal ever. Then came Cell and then Gohan needed to be an even more powerful Super to win. Then Majin Buu which required Goku to go super saiyan 2.

    If you are going to stay in the same universe/timeline, the villain and the hero need to keep being stronger than the previous one for it to keep the audience invested.

    I agree that it is a much better way to do it. I'm just saying when you are on a long running linnear story, you are pretty limited in what can be done.

    Do people not think the sequels overall harmed the SW brand? At the very least I feel like it failed to capitalize on an opportunity/won’t endure with any sort of cultural relevancy and create new fans that weren’t already in the fold.

    I thought they were good but whiffed on the third one pretty bad. The whole Rey Skywalker ending was cringe and felt like it was a 13 year old's fanfic.

    the sequels were bad but it was the execution that failed not the idea.

    I’m still happy they’re trying to make more stories though. even if some inevitably won’t work.

    They absolutely harmed the brand with the new trilogy. But the OG trilogy holds strong and will continue to have a lasting impact that creates new fans. TCW and Rebels will also create new fans. Hollywood studios will create new fans.

    I loved The Force Awakens and think The Last Jedi is a top three SW movie. That said, I think overall the way the trilogy was handled was short sighted, uncoordinated, and plainly terrible. Some fans were lost with The Last Jedi, others with The Rise of Skywalker. Either way, Disney totally mishandled the franchise unlike Marvel. Star Wars needed a Kevin Feige.

    Star Wars actually has a Kevin Feige. Shoot, you can argue it has two right now, but neither of them have the ultimate power than Feige has over the MCU. Had either Favreau or Filoni been in that kind of a role from the beginning, and had the trilogy been developed with better coordination with the writer/directors, AND had they not insisted on sticking to a "one movie a year" release schedule in the early going, things would have been a lot different. The Rise of Skywalker in particular needed an entire year of additional development. The blame there falls primarily on Iger, who refused to move its release date for financial reasons. It falls secondarily on JJ Abrams, who is the last person anyone should ever hire to "finish" a story. The man's made a living off of making one tantalizing "chapter one" after another without ever having to stick a landing. He had to stick this one and completely crashed the plane.

    That said, I disagree that Star Wars will diminish in cultural relevancy. It struggled out of the gate but the franchise is rebounding nicely with the D+ shows. The fever pitch anticipation that accompanied the release of The Force Awakens will never return, but that's mostly because Disney will never let the franchise sit dormant for long enough to build up that level of hype. Star Wars is no longer a special event cinematic thing that it was under Lucas. It's now a cog in the Wheel of the Mouse. And that's fine, I guess. It gives us more Star Wars to consume and, hopefully, more and more of the wider universe to explore.

    I mean the idea of continuing the story not the story choices.

    my whole point was that I don’t think people should be jaded about every piece of new content as some Disney cash grab.

    You will never convince me that TLJ is a good movie. Hamil himself hated what they did with Luke. TLJ had some cool elements, force projection, the team up battle in the throne room, and some other stuff as well. But there’s so much other trash in there that was unnecessary it ruins the movie. Rian Johnson spending more time undoing the admittedly lazy set up from JJ Abrams than building a story around the GOAT Star Wars hero killed any chance of this being a cohesive trilogy.

    i walked out of 8 a bit confused. I walked out of 9 angry
