Which is all I really ask for from a kids sci-fi series.

Are you referring to the information coming out on the interference of Disney's execs?

That's absolutely devastating news if true. It would certainly explain Boyega's spoilery tweets.

Yeah that's almost certainly just a bullshit toxic "fan" post. Ignore it.


Yeah that's my thoughts.

But we're going to get years of "Release the JJ cut" nonsense like the "Release the Snyder cut" for JLA

That's a hell of a typo.

Looking forward to the bluray release so hopefully someone recuts the whole trilogy into maybe a film or two that actually work...

It's a bit sad seeing people like "oh well it was badly written but a fun enough few hours" like that somehow makes it.. ok? It's a film that's meant to draw a line under a fourty year story being made by people who should be able to do a far better job than they actually managed, and people are like "well it didn't make a jot of sense but the setpieces were good" (and let's be honest, they weren't even that good. The Final Order fleet of planet-killing star destroyers that can't navigate themselves away from their stupid planet (how they didn't learn from "DON'T GIVE US ANOTHER strawberry floating DEATH STAR" after The Force Awakens is utterly baffling)? The stadium full of faceless nobodies here to see Palpatine on a robotic arm? :dread:)

I don't understand how Disney gave us Endgame, and then a few months later... this.

"People are sick of Death Stars JJ, we need to do something new!"

"Oh, they're sick of them are they? Well how about we give them an entire strawberry floating FLEET of Death Stars!? strawberry floating thousands of the bastards!"

Meanwhile, in an alternate reality, the New Republic died trying to set itself up two years after the Battle of Endor, and the sequel trilogy is about Luke trying to rebuild the Jedi Order to combat a galaxy in the grip of criminal syndicates.

And not a super-duper planet-destroying laser in sight.

I love Endgame but I'm not sure it's the best example from Disney's recent films or specifically the MCU, it unravels pretty quickly if you start pulling at it. I totally agree with you though, the obvious difference with Endgame is that they had invested in the big moment to give it weight and earned the emotional pay off. You would have thought that getting a coherent story written would have been the easiest part of making this Star Wars trilogy.

Gotta wonder if that weapon is related in any way to the experimental beam weapon that the Republic used with Venator-class Star Destroyers during the Clone Wars.
