Realizing I couldn’t tell you which of the three movies that meme image is from. Those movies came and went.

feels like an internal cognitive dissonance that riann wanted to pull the rug out from under the star wars nerds, force people to think differently, change their expectations, step back and contemplate

...while cheering at triple kill 9x point combo

studio meddling, I suppose

Rey has a different hairstyle and outfit because they weren't shoehorning in old Leia footage, episode 8.

Seriously everyone talks about how dumb Kylo getting his mask back was but no one talks about Rey's complete stylistic reversion

Episodes 7, 8, and 9, respectively.

JJ reverted Rey to her episode 7 look so the Carrie Fisher scenes they reused would match episode 9.

Like Ben, she regressed.

Completely unrelated, here's some concept art for Colin Trevorrow's scrapped Duel of the Fates.

Still amazes me how badly they fucked that whole trilogy of movies.

It's mindblowing that Disney made such a huge investment and could have had a second franchise with twice yearly films to dominate the box office and instead they just let these morons not even plan out a coherent story.

There will be a time when all the dirty secrets come out and then we will all realise that no matter how bad we think they fucked it up, the reality will be even worse.

How anyone involved still has a job or gets any work with a higher profile than direct-to-streaming sequels to mediocre family comedies is beyond absurd.

Ok people, we've made some edits to the script. This is how we make star wars appealing to the suburban latinx non-binary demographic, get past the Chinese censors, make the designs simple enough for cheap toys and root out the male gaze and masochism. Any questions?  :social

Yeah, some planning would have done a lot of good. And maybe hire a few editors to look at the script beforehand. Maybe one of them would tell you not to make the same movie twice.

According to the one Star Wars oral history book, the conclusion IX Rian Johnson wrote was not perfect but mostly followed logically from The Last Jedi. JJ threw it out almost completely and felt he shouldn't be restricted by what Johnson did in The Last Jedi and so if he wanted to ignore anything that happened in it he just could.

The only conclusion to draw from this is that nobody involved actually knew what a trilogy is or why they're supposed to resemble three acts. The fact that nobody decided before doing any of it what should happen in the third part and then they brought back the guy who made the first part and he just made it up as he shot is amazing for such a gigantic franchise.

One of the major actors was able to die and it probably didn't change their role in the third part because there probably wasn't any role mapped out in the first place.

They could have done all of that and still made a decent film that made sense. I wouldn't have cared at all that they made it all *woke* if the story was better than the insulting shit pile they gave us.

It's not even like they had to try.

Episode III title crawl:



audiences:  :mindblown "wait, something important happened offscreen with palpatine, in this third movie of the trilogy?"

Lucas:  :lucas "it's explained in supplementary material"





Episode IX title crawl:



audiences:  :mindblown "wait, something important happened offscreen with palpatine, in this third movie of the trilogy?"

Disney:  :no1curr "it's explained in supplementary material"

“I hesitate to use the word trilogies anymore, because Star Wars is much more about persistent storytelling,” Kennedy says.

As for the film side of that, “We have a road map,” Kennedy says.

I'm not sure that indicates she actually has learned anything.

I don't think Solo failed because they cast a younger actor to play a younger Han Solo, that whole thing where they fired the directors and writers and brought in Ron Howard to staple the thing together on the quick might have been one of the learning lessons but she doesn't mention that.

It doesn't make sense on any level. Star Wars has recasted a bunch of characters like Anakin/Vader and Obi Wan.
And how does she imagine this origin story would've worked out if they casted Ford to play the role? Another de-aging horror show?

The lesson she learned is don't recast roles with younger actors, she says in the same interview where she promotes the new Obi Wan series that does not star Alec Guinness.

"This isn't the job for me"?

She should have learned you can make a prequel movie that leaves some fannerds' questions unanswered.

Maybe just make your Han Solo movie and let us wonder where the protagonist got his blaster. Call this the Rogue One maneuver.

Obi-Wan is good fun.

The audience-knows-but-Obi-did-not "reveal" in ep 2 was surprisingly moving.

I dunno, that star wars star cruiser thing is basically a LARP / Murder Mystery weekend but combined with one big / hundreds of little escape room puzzle scenarios, right?

I can see how its worth every penny to someone whos super into star wars but who might still be too normie to cosplay / LARPing / RenFaire / Reenactments type shit.
Its undeniably gonna be a fairly unique experience, especially if you take it seriously and atively try and join in.

It makes me so mad that they never gave her the staff light saber. You'd think that shit was choreographed from the very beginning with Rey constantly running around with her staff. Turns out only Tevorrow had the brains to do it.
