    I agree that this was a collaborative failure on the part of Disney. JJ set up the template for the ST by essentially rebooting ANH, so that was strike one for being unoriginal and leaving these mystery boxes.

    Then RJ came in and was given free reign and it looked like there was no big picture plan as these guys were doing what they wanted. I will easily boycott Episode 9 because I could care less how it ends because the Trilogy has been a disaster for me. I don’t hate the movies when taken as their own entity, but they are part 1 and 2 of a Trilogy, so the narrative doesn’t work for me in that respect. That’s why I’m more interested in the standalones at this point as they need to move away from The Skywalker Saga and stop ruining the OT characters.

    Solo bombs, Kathleen Kennedy is not going to get fired any time soon. What is your "rebellion" going to do until the next movie comes out, which is December 2019.

    I think this is more about Post-Episode 9 leadership (atleast that's the way I always looked at it as I can't speak for anyone else). Episode 9 will start shooting next month so that movie is set in stone with KK at the helm, so nothing is going to change in that respect. But the same people boycotting Solo because of TLJ, will no doubt boycott Episode 9 because we feel the Trilogy is lost at this point and can't be rescued.

    This is more about where does SW go after Episode 9? What is the strategy? What is the narrative of the movies? If I were running Disney, I would hire a new face and present to the fans an outline of the next 5-6 years after Episode 9 and what movies they have on the horizon. I would state a clear goal with the movies (I would personally stick with Standalone movies, maybe 1/2 of them that deal with existing OT stories like Rogue One, and the other 1/2 with all new stories to keep the movies fresh). I would stop with the Trilogies as all they do is hurt the storytelling because everyone gets caught up in this and that, and when this will happen in the Trilogy, and if this will be a cliffhanger. Rogue One was a successful Standalone movie that used an existing story from the OT with a new spin on it and had all new characters and seems like the least controversial of the 4 movies now.

    & also LFL/Disney May just look at the Box Office takings & not what fans are saying about SOLO so we may end up getting more films in the TLJ vain & not SOLO because that film made more money. So it may have the reverse effect of what the boycott wanted .
    Hey a even worse case scenario would be that LFL stops making SW films full stop & instead focus on TV shows both Live Action & Animated for the Disney streaming service.
    Not that I think that will happen I just thought I would point out the worse case scenario & sometimes Be carful what you wish for as anyone who wanted SOLO to do badly at the BO so far have got there wish so let’s see what happens next.

    Of course KK wan't be fired until work is done..Do you think we dont know they istalled most inapropriate person for that job in the galaxy for no reason?
    Lucas's vision of Star Wars must die.Idea of chosen must die.Every last symbol of Christian culture,the ideal of supernatural intervention to save the world,manifested in chosen one must be destroyed from this culture phenomenon,Star Wars.And ridiculed.Why do you think Luke drinks green milk by milking space cow?To punish him ritually for been son of repurgent ideal of Chosen one.To show how repurgent ideal of Chosen is, ending by mad cow milking hermit on a isolated Island who throws away symbol of chosen one ,his own father's saber. Only after real God manifests with burning tree and Yoda like a burning bush manifested to Moses does Luke accepts he was infidel and sacrifices to be accepted by true God as a common man which than disappears from this world.
    Whats left is last offspring of repurgent ideal of Chosen line,Ben Solo,who shows ,as the last of chosen line,the true evil nature of idea of Chosen one,and will be dealed appropriately to show the Christians how is true God governing the universe.
    Courtain has falen,ideologic and cultural wars have begun.

    Well, the "fans" have already "won" when they basically forced George Lucas to sell SW to Disney. I am afraid that once they "win" again, things would become even worse (for them at least).

    They already started doing that with Solo, which is both standalone and yet has enough of a foundation to have a sequel made. Yet the "fans" kept complaining that they didn't want a movie about young Han Solo. And if something completely new comes out, wouldn't fans start complaining that they don't want anything new and don't care about something with no connection to the OT?

    Oh yeah, clearly Solo sold less tickets than Black Panther.

    As always I agree with you,and perfectly understand you, but note please how this thread just matrured badly.

    Original post simply looks as the biggest misconception ever in this Cantina, yes, it even dwarfs already titranic misconceptions I had in some of my own threads.

    I beg you to understand me, as a human, I can't resist to dwell near mind blowing insulting travesty over reality like this threads OP, it makes me less imperfect.

    Yes I am a bad man.

    The above quote...is part of the problem. It's a bunch of ranting gibberish that has NOTHING to do with the original post. I'm not debating this with you.

    Please just observe and see the post of poster who provoked me and I asked does he want me to continue or not with what I..Know.....he simply pushed forward.
    If asked I could tell all about Abramowitz but in respect to you in the first place, and in full understanding this is not place for it, i will not do it, ever.

    Sheesh, I find it tragic and unbelievable that there is so much denial about TLJ and it's potential affect on this movie here and on other forums - and that the narrative is it's all alt-righters, fatigue, etc. Clearly, those folks are there, and now because some felt burned by the story choices set up from TFA, and some of the employees at LFL got in the weeds with the fans subjectively coming off as being disrespectful, you have indirectly fueled those Youtube hits and may have had a hand at what we saw this weekend. Hell, the weather has been great where I live, but humid, and the A/C in the theater would have been a nice diversion.

    Solo would have been a great SW movie to launch for the new Disney streaming service. I may still plan to see this movie, but I never thought it was a good idea from the start for a multitude of reasons (which is probably more what happened here) - and the prior movie affected me. LFL needs to own it or not, but you have to be willing to accept the consequences of your messaging as any business/individual does now thanks to social media.

    This is from SW, not some alt-right, SW hating photoshop job.



    The problem with this message is - if I take them as literal, I think...."hmm maybe this new SW isn't for me, they don't want the OG fans, they are moving on now."

    Or since it was post TLJ fandom divide extravaganza, perhaps it was a joke to try and downplay the divide. "Okay, let the last couple months die and move on together"

    If it is ironic because the past is important, and Rey is a Skywalker, then you are going to incite the rage of the other side who championed the "nobody." I don't know why LFL execs or Disney wouldn't have just issued a memo saying, don't engage with the fans without contacting our new "fan complaint division" and let's be sensitive to the fandom. It could have been an internal message and saved them some headaches.

    Now, you are asking me as a company to delve into the past again, and to revisit a hero from the OT after you just burned one of the greatest hero characters of all time in the last 40 years? Maybe fans or causal OT fans didn't want to risk anything more in their minds. You have to wonder what the hell they are dragging BDW out for - to do the same in 1.5 years.

    They've made their bed, and now they have to sleep in it - unfortunately for all of us.

    Ok folks, at the request of the original poster, we're closing this thread as it began as a projected sales thread, but unfortunately has devolved into another "I hate Star Wars" type of thread.

    Thanks for all of your posts.
