    Well, to be fair, Disney didn't make these films, LFL did and they've done that before more recently :)

    That's what I said. Lucasfilm hadn't made a big film since 2005 (2008 if you count Indy) and they asked for 6 films starting in 2015. It's a pretty insane ask.

    Does anybody believe that George Lucas secretly made his sequel trilogy in secret and never told anybody and then sold star wars to Disney knowing that they would screw it up and plunge Disney into ruin so he could buy it back cheap and then release his movies to a more appreciative crowd now that they know what a truly awful star wars movie is.

    No, for the simple fact Lucasfilm is currently worth far more than what Disney paid for it. Also, Disney is in ruin?

    But haven't they been having trouble selling merch lately and the cast is telling everybody how awful Kathleen Kennedy is for the brand yet she is still employed.Disneyland is closed and all they keep sending to Disney plus is horrible except the mandalorion and talk of closing Disney world again in the not to distant future. Eventually aren't they going to run out of people to lay off and then what?

    How is KK bad for the brand?

    What would GL do if he had LFL in a pandemic? Somehow not lay people off even if he has less money and fewer resources than Disney?

    Why are you such a lame troll?

    Nope
    Complete nonsense
    There's a pandemic. I'm surprised you haven't heard about it.
    Disney+ has been a tremendous success for Disney by pretty much every conceivable measure.

    BTW welcome to the forum here, but you're not gonna find many of us who take this kind of internet misinformation seriously. Don't believe everything you see on the internet.

    Lucas delivered to Disney all of his notes, writings, designs, and everything else to do with past and future plans for Star Wars that had not yet been used.

    Meaning: Lucas gave them his vision of the story as part of the purchase.

    So, no. Because it's factually incorrect as Lucas gave his version of the story to Disney.

    You are not "everybody". People knew he was working on a new Star Wars. He had hired folks to get started on prep work.

    Ignorance is not evidence.

    Cheers,
    Jayson

    If Disney plus is a success why has it not turned a profit yet? Didn't you hear the cast member interviews where they said Kathleen Kennedy ruined the sequel trilogy? And isn't baby yoda the only merch that sold but they over sold them and now there just sitting on the shelf during the holiday season.

    The force isn't female the force has no gender. And she ruined three movies trying to prove her theory that is totally wrong.

    I can't edit the comment that bothers you but I didn't say in it exactly what I meant to because what I meant to say is does any one believe George Lucas after selling star wars made the sequels any way and just put it in a secret vault and only will be released upon his death. I know i mixed some other stuff in there but that is all I meant. Secondly your probably right because mark hamil has stated in many interviews that when you are trying to keep a secret you do not tell Carrie fisher he said tell a phone tell a friend tell Carrie so just because Carrie fisher was to be a big part of those movies it probably didn't happen

    Wasn’t.. Disney recently reported to be shifting their media focus to streaming as well? If so, I feel that’s more indicative that Disney+ was actually a pretty good success.

    Yes. It's sitting in a crate next to the Ark and the spaceship from Area 51.

    Fools. They don't know what they've got there.

    It just means that nobody wants to go to the movies right now and they have no choice but if the new content is no good it will fail because most of the old movies on it everyone already has on blue ray or dvd.

    Nice ball spiking but I don't believe you read my post completely I said in it you were probably right. So why are you talking about spaceships and the ark and area 51.

    The Force is Female isn't a theory, it's a statement. And... believe it or not, didn't actually have anything to do with Star Wars.
