Pretty much.

VIII was "Here's some new characters, plot ideas, and an indication of where we'd like the universe to go!"
IX was "OMG we're so sorry for VIII, here's episode VI again with more CGI and numerous references to how terrible VIII was."

MrFrode: "So what Doomcock is explaining is that a Star Wars Multiverse will be created which will isolate the Disney Star Wars Trilogy as being a part of a separate universe that is not a part of the George Lucas original Star Wars films."

Lucas/Disney is basically giving up and saying everything is canon and you better believe they will shovel out garbage for all tastes hoping to separate you from your money.

Disney doesn't care about Star Wars it cares about money and it has realized it F'd up on the new trilogy and is trying to find a way to maximize their investment. You love/hate Rey, Disney's got a universe for you, you like/hate the original-expanded trilogy stories, Disney's got a universe for you, you think the new trilogy was the best, well you need help but Disney's got a universe for you too.

Darth_Lukecash: First of all, I loved all the new characters. I loved all the actors. I had no issues with what they did. Only stupid people would remove characters that inspired a new generation.

My only two issue was what happened to the Original Characters and that Disney had no overreaching damned plot.

Lucas had a vague outline for the original trilogy. This allowed him enough room to make changes mid-production and still come out as structured.

The prequels had a definite story structure, which fit into the over all structure of a Saga.  Quality issues aside, the over all plot and themes meshed very well.

Disney should have just started their own new saga with an episode 1. Or have the first movie a last hurrah in glory for the Original Characters and hand off the saga to the next generation.

The saddest part of all this: Lucas had entrusted Disney with Star Wars for safe keeping. He should have just made Star Wars Public domain....


He didn't give it to Disney for "safe keeping" he gave it to them for "a billion dollars"

The public domain doesn't have a billion dollars to spend.

nothing will go public domain again - everything will be owned in perpetuity by immortal corporations until we replace the entire socioeconomic system.

Disney bought a franchise that had a fan base that would sleep outside of theaters for days to buy tickets. New parents would talk about which order they would show their newborns the movies. Original trilogy or prequel trilogy? They pissed that all away for immediate quarterly profits. They can live with that choice.

The greatest tragedy of the new films is they had good actors playing good characters, all in service to garbage plots written by hacks with naked contempt for the franchise.

I really liked Rey, Kylo, Finn, and Poe. And if Kennedy and the other powers that be had taken their jobs seriously and gone into this with an actual plan instead of pulling things out of their asses, they could have had something truly amazing - at least as good as the originals, maybe better.

Instead we got a tire fire and those actors wasted their time, energy, and talents.

zbtop: My desire for additional Star Wars content was thoroughly crushed after Ep8.

like...as a consumer, my demand just flattened to zero. The inner eight year old that was obsessed with Star Wars died. Never did see Ep 9.

There's a lot of reasons people don't like these movies, and lots of culture wars being fought over it. As is however, I just can't bring myself to care about the franchise at all anymore.


Are you me? I've seen every numbered film and R1 opening day, even ANH and I was like 4 when that came out.  E8 was like flipping a switch in my head.  My give-a-damn literally died in the theater, somewhere between space Vegas, the super-duper star destroyer incursion, and Rose's idiotic and selfish stunt on planet Salt.

I've not seen 9, and I can't imagine I ever will.

madgonad: VII was just a soft ANH reboot. I liked the runaway stormtrooper angle. I liked the protagonist being a young woman. I thought being found on a desert planet was too on the nose though. Watching the UltraSuperDeath Star beams sail across the galaxy while visible from some random planet's surface actually hurt. It is like the creators of Star Wars thought that the speed of light is infinite and the galaxy is the size of a solar system. It ripped me out of the movie. I expected Han to get killed by his son. I liked Finn trying to fight Kylo with a light saber and I liked Rey getting the saber and standing up to Kylo. All the rest is ho-hum. Maybe a little too Mary Sue for Rey. I believed her having legit fighting skills, but piloting the Falcon with no prior experience - nah. Remember, Luke was already trained as a pilot before Yavin and even then he was sloppy and needed others to sacrifice for him to win.

VIII was just.... painful. It went off the rails from the very start with the phone gag. Then Leia and Haldo take turns kicking Poe in the balls for a very successful victory during the withdrawal and then keeping him in the dark and watching him flail during the slow-speed chase and mutiny. Pointless trip to CasinoWorld. Lightspeed ramming technique that made all previous space battles pointless. Turned Luke into a psycho. The man who surrendered to the emperor to save his father thought it was a good idea to kill his nephew? And then at the end Yoda's ghost gaslights him into killing himself. I wanted more female characters in Star Wars, but their role shouldn't be to thwart the male heroes (Leia, Holdo, and Rose are there to thwart Finn and Poe. Why not have them act against, you know, the bad guys?). Rose crashing into Finn and then sexually assaulting him was the single most dumb thing in Star Wars - even worse than Jar Jar and Yipee!. Rey's arc wasn't too bad. I liked what happened on HER side with Luke. If TLJ really wanted to be edgy, Rey should have turned to the dark side and Kylo would have fled to the rebels.

IX was just a bunch of stuff that happened. Nothing made sense because it started out by bring Palpatine back in. Just throw stuff on the screen and hope it all works out.


Episode 8 spent huge chunks of the movie emasculating Poe for destroying the dreadnaught. The same dreadnaught that would have annihilated the Rebel fleet after their first jump, since they didn't know they were being tracked.

This is pretty much how I feel about VII. It started out great - the raid on the village, a turned stormtrooper, an orphan scavenger on a distant planet with some old space battle debris to explore. But once Finn and Rey fled from the stormtroopers and ran to the Millennium Falcon, the alarm bells started to go off in my head and my interest began to slide.

I can recall the exact moment I came to the conclusion this was going to be a dud - it was on the Millennium Falcon right before Han and Chewbacca showed. Something about Finn and Rey's interaction seemed off.  From there, I just could not get into it.  It just did not feel like Star Wars to me.  This version of of the galaxy seemed very alien to me.  It seemed like a poorly made fan film - some one had access to some really great props and actors, but didn't understand what made Star Wars great. The sequels just got worse from there.

While the prequels had issues, I enjoyed watching them and they still felt like Star Wars.  To me, the only Disney movie that came closest to feeling like Star Wars was Rogue One, but I think it was because it really benefitted from directly using locations and images from Episode 4 and it had Vader.  Then again, the sequel trilogy had the original actors and it still failed to feel like Star Wars.

At this point I'm done with Star Wars. It was a great part of my youth, but there is no future with this franchise.

pkjun: TLJ is the only good Star Wars movie.

"Sir, the Rebels are slowly getting away!"

"Slowly follow them.  We will destroy them when they run out of gas!"


now in support of a stupid plotline for a moronic movie, we have to introduce "hyperspace fuel" so we can have a sense of faux drama... then they had to cement this by making this new "coaxium" macguffin the central plot of "Solo"...and they didn't just double down on stupid, they triple downed on it... they have decided that hyper space fuel is extremely rare, and dangerous, and only comes from the SAME planet that the popular and highly illegal drug "spice" comes from... only one planet? as the source of ALL hyperspace fuel...for a civilization that spans thousands of planets, composed of trillions of beings, over several millennia?
yeah....THAT makes zero sense.


I thought that was a fun nod to the Dune books.  Star Wars has always been heavily indebted to and influenced by Dune:

Desert Planet Arrakis = Desert Planet Tatooine
Paul Atreides = Luke Skywalker
Baron Harkonnen =  Darth Vader
Duncan Idaho = Han Solo
Gurney Halleck = Obi Wan
Princess Alia = Princess Leia
The Evil Emperor = The Evil Emperor
Imperial Saudaukar = Imperial Stormtroopers
Bene Gasserit = Jedi Knights
Knife fighting = Lightsaber fighting
Obi Wan uses The Voice on the stormtroopers

Spice from Arrakis is needed for interstellar travel = fuel from a planet with a nickname Spice is needed for interstellar travel.


Not bad, but you may want to watch Kurosawa's 'The Hidden Fortress'.

On another note, that "Overlord DVD" fool, "Nerdcrotic" and similar channels on YT are horrifyingly anti-woman, who probably preferred their Star Wars when it was one woman in the entire galaxy, that by the third movie in the series her role was so reduced, that they had her in a farking metal bikini for a large part of the movie, and then had to be rescued by farking teddy bears. I didn't even bother to see their thoughts on 'Rogue One' or the latest trilogy. They're probably filled with so much hatred and bile that it makes them unwatchable.

'A New Hope' Leia is best Leia. She wasn't too bad in 'Empire', but she was starting to get reduced to love interest.

the ONLY way most of this tech makes sense is if Energy is widely and cheaply available.
now in support of a stupid plotline for a moronic movie, we have to introduce "hyperspace fuel" so we can have a sense of faux drama... then they had to cement this by making this new "coaxium" macguffin the central plot of "Solo"...and they didn't just double down on stupid, they triple downed on it... they have decided that hyper space fuel is extremely rare, and dangerous, and only comes from the SAME planet that the popular and highly illegal drug "spice" comes from... only one planet? as the source of ALL hyperspace fuel...for a civilization that spans thousands of planets, composed of trillions of beings, over several millennia?
yeah....THAT makes zero sense.

we are supposed to be able to suspend disbelief in order to buy the setting, the space magic etc...for that to work it has to have some in universe rules to follow...now they will break those internal boundries any time they feel like just so they can have a non-sensical action scene or plot point (Ep IX introduced "hyperspace skipping"...What the Proverbial fark??)

If you want to reset the sequel series (And I don't blame you if you want to), you need to reset ALL of the sequel series, not just the one or two contentious ones. Also, while we're on the subject, would it be too much to ask to have an overarching story line planned out BEFORE filming this time?
