    Alright, this thread has gone off the rails.

    For those wanting to debate box office numbers for a 2 year old Star Wars movie, we have a dedicated thread for this purpose. For the sake of not disrupting the discussion of the topic of this thread, I suggest we keep it there.

    For those wanting to discuss the topic for which this thread was created, which is the level of creative freedom Rian Johnson may or may not have with his potential trilogy of films, carry on.

    Myself I hope that if Rian does make a new trilogy, that there is minimal studio interference and that he has total control over the creative output that he has.I have seen many franchises and films where studio interference has resulted in alterations/disruptions to the tone and story that had adverse impacts on my own experience.

    Having said this, we do not know whether this new trilogy will come to pass or whether it will face the process I euphemistically refer to as creative euthanasia. Such euthanasia can take place for a variety of reasons:
    • Change in business financial model
    • Change in leadership and management style- may be incentivised to take fewer risks
    • Idea not fiscally viable
    • Lack of support for the idea in management- especially true when it is likely that Disney is more fond of high concept films (films that hook with a two sentence description and prioritise mass marketability)
    • Other projects being prioritised and the idea being buried
    • Creative differences
    • Audience and critical reception of prior material
    The rush to find a figure to blame for such interference and creative decisions we do not like kind of reminds me of in ABC Warriors: Volgan War when Blackblood is looking for his elusive nemesis 'general public'...

    They'll never go away. People still argue the PT.

    Personally if RJ does get some kind of project it goes to D+. And it's a big IF.

    Do what I do when I encounter negativity of that ilk. Just turn away, listen to some Gregorian chant while reading a newspaper, watch the sun rise in your local park and lose yourself in that moment.
