But my money is on Mickey mouse sweating bullets.


Between all the films, theme parks and licensing they valuation is well worth the expense. Anything Star Wars ever made or to be made will net them margin.

They need to get kids interested in the franchise.
When I saw these movies in the theatre the majority of viewers was middle aged white men.
They don't care about theme parks or toys.
Again, we will see

When I went there were little kids dressed up as Rey, Yoda and Luke.

Those kids aren't buying the toys so that's gotta mean something.

Are they? I didn't ask them. They certainly had a licensed costume on.

ETA: Bllomberg is saying toy tie in sales are down for everyone. Not just this franchise.

You're forgetting - licensing all those toys, posters, stuff, crap, shiznit, mugs, shirts, and other junk.

They make at least 1 Billion on that stuff, per film. Lucas is famous for revolutionizing the toy industry due to licensing.

Still didn't save TLJ from being a sh*tfest. Though I did like the hyperspace ship ramming. I woulda done it with Ackbar and have him utter his famous line "It's a trap." then engage the hyperdrive. That was how they should have sent him off.

Agreed, they made Akbar go out like a chump.

They needed a female hero to fit the agenda.

Bad movies will lead to worse merchandise sales and eventually the final nail in the coffin.

I thought the prequels were bad. (Except Revenge of the Sith...I did like that despite Hayden Christensen's acting). The new episodes are making them look like masterpieces of modern science fiction.

Anyone else feel like Star Wars is getting the Terminator treatment? I mean, they keep trying but the more they try the worse they fail. They'd be better off not filming any more.

They are going to squeeze every drop of blue milk out of the franchise while taking it down in flames.
The nostalgia is the only thing keeping it afloat now.

I'm supposed to believe that Ben (who got lucky like Howland Reed at the Tower of Joy) is capable of being on the same level or better than Snoak, Vader, and Palpatine?

Its a shame that cannon is out the window with these movies, I'd have loved to a see a Luke powerful enough to crush a planet with the force.

Heaven forbid somebody that actually knows star wars would write a movie about it.
I've seen fan fiction on YouTube with better plots.

I recently bought The Last Jedi...not sure exactly why because I said I would not watch that again after what they did to my Hero...but I did rewatch it last night.

Realized a few things.

1. Rian Johnson was right in what he did...I know, I know but sometimes you have to rip out the past to make way for the new. Pull out the weed so it is.

2. Rian Johnson was wrong in the execution: You shouldn't have to explain your movie, character motives, plot...that what was done poorly.

This said I got what he was doing to bring balance to the force...think about it each time there is darkness rising as does the light ad infinitum...so how do you bring balance, maybe this was a poor execution, but if done right it may make sense after the final in this trilogy.

What else would Luke do when he realized once you start to build the light that darkness rises to it...what else would such a failure do to a "man" at the end of the day he was hero but also just a farm boy who failed not just failed but trained and was creating the next Darth Vader. His KIN, his Nephew so he should slaughter him? Imagine your depression knowing you were doing such good creating a new Jedi order only to have your star pupil and family turning to the darkness to kill most of his students, then his father and your best friend...

I am not justifying what Johnson did, nor defending it as I disagree with many, many points but there was much good in that movie and how should the failure of our Hero be handled? Luke failed miserably, let that sink in and this movie is not for us who grew up but for those still growing who need to learn a new way of the force...

Yoda really brought it home as to the direction it needs to go. “The greatest teacher, failure is.”

Both of the recent films of the new trilogy relied heavily on practical effects, just like the originals.

Actually I heard they are letting each new director decide the cannon.. so they literally didn’t have a plan for anything from movie to movie..

The whole point is that this will be just a kids movie made in disney style like 8 with the same SJW crap in it. Male dumbasses and strong women that make all right decisions and act like men. Logical decisions are bad emotional decisions are good.
And on of all who the F is Luke Skywalker ? if one looks at the whole sci-fi as a whole than the pattern is obvious all sci-fi is being raped by SJW crap. Even the actors are weak. I still going to watch the movie , I simply like good CGI.
