I have next to no hope for this movie. The last one was so terrible I had a hard time believing it. Disney all but ruined Star Waes with their “it has to please everyone” attitude.
Their constant re-writes and shuffling of directors who were removed due to “creative differences” goes to show you how much better these three films could have been if they were left in the hands of artists and not amusement park owners trying to squeeze as much money from the Star Wars brand as possible. Fuck Disney.
Read a neat theory on Reddit that “The Last Jedi” followed by “Rise of Skywalker” could mean that Rey is not a Skywalker by blood, but that “Skywalker” is the title of the teachings from Luke and the name that will carry forward now that the “Jedi” are gone. So she’s not a Skywalker by blood, but the first “Skywalker”, the evolution of the more traditional “Jedi”.
I dont believe Ren was the only one saying let it all die…… Luke was saying the jedi are a failure…which was a preety amazing thing for him to say seeing as how he saved his own father from the dark side. Not much failiure in that. Then he blows off Rey mentioning that to him. Truly bizarre writing. Its no wonder Mark Hamill hated the movie.
They just want to bring us old folks back by showing Lando, Leia, and Lukes voice over. It will be interesting to see how much money it gets. Episode 8 was truly one of the strangest movies I’ve ever seen.
I am so tired of the cesspool that Star Wars “fandom” has become. Just take your stupid outrage and get the fuck out of here already.
You guys are like grandparents that go on hour-long “back in my day” rants every time they hear a modern song because all music is terrible now. So you don’t like Star Wars anymore, get the fuck on with your life.
The Jedi were categorically a failure, I don’t know how you could possibly argue otherwise. They failed, hard. Being successful in turning his father back from the dark side does not mean the Jedi Order did not fail.
It’s funny how people still think the movie was good when Hamill himself warned us about it and didnt like it. It makes no sense for someone who saved his father from evil, thinks that way of thinking was a failure.
Maybe if some other jedi made that argument it would make just a bit more sense? But Luke making that argument is just stupid. Then his reaction to Rey bringing up saving his father was inexplicable. But go on defend the shit movie.
