Right that makes it official, the word's "The Saga come to an end" mean that Disney are literally killing the star wars franchise.
It may not be as relevant to the kid's of today as it was to us, we saw the future with hope now we and even the kid's see it with a level of
It's such a shame that Disney was unable to live up to the Star Wars legacy and produced movies so bad they made the prequel trilogy (youngling's and
midichlorian's included) actually look good.
Nothing wrong with the cinematography but give original star wars credit they at least tried to make it feel like you were on alien world's with the
cast while these movies have too much of an earth feel to them which considering they have used earth locations is not surprising.
And let's be fair Rey is not the best character they have created she has no depth, almost no personality on screen and the same for the Kylo
character whom come's across more like the son of Mr Bean with a mood than an heir of darth vader.
Still that did indeed sound like Palpatine and if they have revived some of the expanded universe lore well that becomes' a whole lot more possible
since Palpatine may have perfected a way to transfer his force ghost between his own clone body's, his master Darth Plagueis whom he killed was
supposedly able to use the force to extend his own life and more.
The real problem with Disney movies is they shrank the star wars universe down into a tiny universe, there star killer base was a crap idea when a
first order invasion with a huge fleet (they had built in secret) and a proper space battle and defeat of a vastly outgunned rebel alliance/Republic -
since a rebel alliance after the empire has supposedly been defeated makes no sense and it would simply be the republic fleet from that point onward
anyway would have made a whole lot more sense, created epic hero moment's and suicide run's as well as the force is strong with this one moment's far
more than a travelling space cannon disguised as a planet (with a convenient flaw in it's design - they could not even do that one right) could ever
The original death star was so much more cool and it has been copied so many time's in science fiction - though it probably drew it's own inspiration
from other science fiction as well as real world sources.
But Star Killer base, nah crap.
Rey, moderatly attractive girl but no head turner struggling as a scavenger for a few ounces of alien food in a desert ship graveyard become's galaxy
saving hero nah crap.
And Kylo?, Mr Bean in space sulking all the time and hateful of his father and mother because he hates himself.
I will possibly watch it if I am still around but I still believe these movies should have been far better, brought us to new world's, city world's,
crime syndicates and new species as well as perhaps explained the origin of the human race in the star wars universe or at least hinted at it.
They missed the trick of the first movie, hint at a far larger tapestry of a vast galaxy and the universe beyond with a network of economy's and
other inter species interactions and also the idea that the galaxy had more than one power, we already know the empire was not ever absolute there
were territory's outside so the empire did not actually control the entire galaxy despite Vaders offer to Luke to rule the Galaxy together as father
Sometimes more is less.
Disney not only failed they disappointed one of the largest entrenched franchise fan bases in history.
