    Hopefully the odds are super high!

    I don’t know what is so hypocritical about these statements? I think Rian Johnson is overrated and won’t be seeing HIS Trilogy because of him. I don’t like Michael Bay movies so I don’t run out and see his movies either.

    My point about seeing SW grow is they can’t have it both ways. You can’t keep saying ‘We Burned the franchise down with TLJ’ because it’s time to move on and stay fresh. Yet the next movie is....Han Solo standalone.

    So apparently you didn’t get my sarcasm is I believe the OT nods in these movies is what keeps this franchise #1 with each movie. The day they step away from that and give us something that doesn’t tie into the OT, will see a lot of fans bolt. Lucas knew that and that is why he did the PT and not some Trilogy that took place in another era.

    Not at all likely. To me, the biggest flaw in TLJ is his portrayal of Luke Skywalker. That won't be an issue with his trilogy.

    Very likely not given the amount that they have to recoup when they bought the franchise.

    Interesting take. Is SW the only film ever to have folks go 'I wonder what the backstory is?'.

    I can't think of another. I always thought going back and filling in details was a waste of time and film, but others disagree...and I get it. I'm looking forward to RJ's new trilogy because it's.....well....'new.' (allegedly)

    Side note: Put blasters in people's hands and flying ships in a movie and I'm THERE. I'm in the bag for this stuff honestly.

    I mean I don't know how you don't see the contradiction in the two statements. Maybe you could argue that you were just joking in the second one I guess? Otherwise you're saying, "Rian Johnson ruined Star Wars but I like Ron Howard so I'll watch the Han Solo movie" and then, "SW needs to stop marketing movies towards OT characters." The funniest thing about the second post is that is what Rian Johnson's trilogy would actually be, a new story with no ties to OT characters.

    This trilogy could get canceled is if RJ's story doesn't inspire Lucasfilm to back it. Or if Han Solo bombs and JJ struggles with IX, Lucasfilm might not want to risk a new story. In that case they'll do something more fan service.

    As far as Disney/Lucasfilm is concerned The Last Jedi is a success both critically, financially, and with most of the audience.

    disagree...i feel that a high quality avengers style star wars saga film where the anthology movies are used as means to slowly build up to a battle between a fallen whill and his dark side ghost spirits(similar to the lord of the rings where dark side ghost serve this dark entity) and the children of rey and kylo are the center of it. have them be supported by cast members from a movie series that is a loose adaptation of the x wing novels(making deep yet fun action movies with great characters and themes but lots of fun), Revan(from a old republic movie series that might actually break out in china thanks to the standalone feel of that era), and the ST cast along with one character from rian johnsons trilogy all in a ten year build up to this "whill trilogy" that covers the brother and sister who are children of rey and kylo face the fallen whill who wants to regain immortality by using them. Add some harry potter elements(son of kylo being a dark anti hero to the more straight foward jedi daughter being in conflict on how to beat this entity) make this fallen whill emotional and complex and you will probably capture all of that TFA money and maybe even more(2.2 billion dollars worldwide with domestic being close to a billion).

    One thing about China.... I'm not sure they're quite as progressive as American/European audiences when it comes to a diverse cast.

    Considering how good his working relation was with LFL and Disney, I doubt they'd cancel it at this point. It will depend entirely on RJ. I think he should do it though, just to show the vocal internet haters he hasn't been intimidated.
    The thing is: If you make a movie entirely depending on another one, it might not be a good one. If knowing the outcome of twists and cliffhangers ruins the movie for you, it also might not be a good one.

    E8 proved that Rian's a totally incompetent storyteller. He not only concocted one of the worst plots of all time, but he also had no idea how to tell a Star Wars story -- he doesn't know a thing about traditional myth making. He lacks imagination; the only thing he can think to do with Luke Skwalker is to have him milk a sea alien.

    And although people think he's strong with visuals, Crait was largely just a rehash of Hoth.

    Kennedy would be wise to cut ties with Johnson because he has no business in the world of Star Wars.

    Rian Johnson has already proven himself as a storyteller/director long before Star Wars. You should check out his previous work. Especially Breaking Bad.

    It's amazing how self-entitled some feel themselves on the internet...

    I do agree that TLJ was some seriously terrible storytelling. My only hope is that RJ can create a much better story when he isn't forced into a certain plot with the cliffhanger ending if TFA. Starting from scratch might be better for him. I hope, I sincerely hope.

    You don't want to give Rian a second chance?

    I think in a scenario where Kennedy gets ousted or 'leaves' nobody left in corporate is gonna want this guy on a trilogy.

    I don't think anyone in corporate is upset that Rey isn't a Solo. Rian Johnson is now the toast of Hollywood.

    Besides, The Last Jedi had to, at some point, go through Alan Horn and Bob Iger. Disney executives have known that Rey is of no special origin for quite some time.

    Hahahaha. This is funny. You know old George had two strikes before he hit a double with the Prequels and that didn't stop him for continuing (ROTS was not a home run, that movie had SOOOO many problems, but it was better than AOTC sooo...)

    Here't the thing folks. Star Wars is now 8 Episodes into the saga. You don't have to like every episode to enjoy the parts that resonate with you. EVERY movie had moments where you said to yourself "that is cool". Every movie had moments where you were at the edge of your seat. Every movie gave you hope that you'd see something you would love. Every one of us will watch Rian's trilogy. Some will pick it apart, others will get immersed. It's the nature of this universe. There's something to love and something to hate for everyone.

    Rest assured that if Rian Johnson put a Rey Solo or Skywalker or Kenobi reveal into the movie, he absolutely would have found a way to **** those up just as badly as the rest of his movie.

    It would have been messed up because it would have made no sense and we would need another movie just to understand how the hell Luke had a wife and a daughter that ended up on Jakku, or how Han and Leia had a daughter when Leia never gave birth to one, or how Obi-Wan Kenobi decided to find a girl and knock her up and then his child have a daughter and leave her on Jakku. All the while she's WAY more powerful than Kenobi ever was. Yup, that would have been an easy thing to weave into the conversations in the film. :confused:
