TFA and TLJ have Rotten Tomatoes scores of over 90% and Metacritic ratings in the 80s. ROS had a bad reception, but suggesting nobody liked the first two is just silly fanboyism.Shem wrote: ↑14 Jul 2020, 18:09It's not like they'd have to give that money back. Meanwhile, the comparatively lackluster performance of Solo has to be making them wonder how much money they can wring out of the program they have now. Especially since they now have three movies that nobody was happy with right on top of the best real estate for theoretical new TV series. TV series that could help distinguish the streaming service that's the basis of their long-term business strategy.Eric the .5b wrote: ↑14 Jul 2020, 17:25Yes, LucasFilm is going to declare take-backsies on three movies released over 4 years and that made ~$4.5 billion.Shem wrote: ↑14 Jul 2020, 14:12 Not sure how I'd feel about this.
Getting back to the rumor, Doomcock says that plans are in place to save the Star Wars franchise which involves the Abrams and Rian Johnson trilogy getting nullified.
It's claimed the Disney Star Wars Trilogy will be erased using a concept that was recently made canon in the Star Wars Rebels animated series.
"In the Season 4 episode 13 installment titled 'A World Between Worlds,' the concept of the Veil of The Force was introduced, a mystical dimension of The Force that connects all time and space," explains Doomcock. "I have received confirmation from two additional sources claiming that this is spot on -- that indeed LucasFilm realizes they have a massive problem on their hands, that the Star Wars franchise is all but dead, and despite Kathleen Kennedy's hatred of this idea, Lucasfilm is preparing to render the Sequel Trilogy null and void."
That's totally going to happen because of something that happened in an animated series.
To beat $4.5 billion (plus merchandising), they don't have to "distinguish" themselves, they have to become New Netflix. They aren't going to become New Netflix on the back of a few Star Wars series. Even they know that.
