Imagine being such a brain dead zombie consumer you continue to support such a shit company.


No Ray, no Fen, no Poe, no chubby Asian lady, no Ren, no Stimpy, no Jar Jar, no Pansexual Lando, no Fembot (Rogue One).

The poster looks good to me. If they had replaced the Bad Batch with the Mando fighting something, all would be well, as all the best Star Wars would be represented (I guess they missed rebels too). With none of the sequels and only Maul repping the prequels, it is about the best you can really hope for.

It's kinda weird that they also included Ventress, but they probably needed a dark side (female) force user to balance the poster. Maybe she is going to play a major part in the Asoka show.

To be honest if they promoted Finn it wouldn't bother me, knowing he's one of the few with balls that spoke out against this piece of shit sequel trilogy multiple times now. I consider him /OurGuys/

That was supposed to be a fun character and Ruin Johnson cut his entire arc and made him a token.

probably because the poster is an ad for video games going on sale tomorrow, and there are no sequel games. or you know, just start making up bizarre conspiracy theories like usual.
Yeah it's not that the sequel trilogy isn't being suppoted by Disney, it's just that they haven't made sequel trilogy games because they aren't supporting it.

The point is that they shit out 3 absolutely god awful movies, all of them a monumental fuck you to the fans yet people and Disney just moves forward like it never happened because they know the brain dead consumers will give Disney all their money regardless.

You people get what you deserve.

Psh, I have never paid for a Star Wars movie or TV show outside of the cable/Netflix subscription that played them (or a rental from Blockbuster / borrowed DvDs from friends).

Additionally, it will take more than 1 poster and some Doomcock rumors to convince me that they are truly going to retcon away or disregard the sequels. Which, if true, I would consider the best outcome for the franchise, at this point.

Regardless, I don't care about Marvel, and I am not that heavily invested in Star wars, so I probably wont ever be a Disney+ subscriber (I have access now, through a friend, and I only watched Mando, and never touched it again).

Force Awakens wasn't bad/shitty or even close. It was, however, an uninspired rehash of A New Hope. Rey isn't likeable but the first movie of the new trilogy wasn't dogshit. It just wasn't -that- much better than the prequels and not as good as the original trilogy movies.

Force Awakens is OK but doesn't stand on it's own.

Some movies can have shitty sequels and still be classics. The Matrix is a good example, it stands alone. A New Hope could probably have had shitty sequels and would still be beloved

Some movies are enjoyable but don't have any longevity, however their sequels enchance them and give them that longevity by making the original be part of that story. A lot of MCU movies are like this, I'm thinking specifically Thor 1/2 in regards to Avengers/Thor 3.

If the sequels to Force Awakens delivered then we would be seeing that movie in a very different light, unfortunatly the sequels actually diminished the movie by discarding the plot points it set up.

It's the opposite of A New Hope which while it does stand alone, is enchanced by it's sequels which caused Star Wars to have it's legendary status.

Ryan Johnson is responsible for the largest financial loss in film history when you look at the potential Disney Star Wars had.

Yeah, Force Awakens isn't particularly good but it would be looked at very differently had the movies that came after it been better.

yeah, it was OK. as in it wasnt offensive, it was just sort of there and you think you liked it because it promised so much to come in the sequels. its a typical JJ Mystery Box maneuver. its why we all loved Lost in the beginning and hated it by the end. its why we all loved the new Star Trek movie and hated it by the last one. you get excited by what could be in that mystery box and then when you see there wasnt anything in the mystery box you are pissed.

Doubtful unless they go way back in time, Ventress died about the same time order 66 happened

Makes you wonder why he never put anything into the mystery boxes, he could have just copied fan theories.
he does the opposite, he thinks he is super clever and then fans who as a collective will always be much smarter, guessed that everyone in Lost was dead and that they were in purgatory. so JJ changed it just enough so he could say, "nuh uh", even though it was still purgatory. he got mad when everyone guessed that Khan was going to be in the Star Trek sequel, he even outright lied and said "nuh uh" and at the end of the day Khan was in the sequel. JJ is a little bitch and will always be. he hasnt opened the mystery box because the mystery box isnt supposed to be opened. you're just supposed to wonder about what could be inside it.

The new trilogy made money movie wise, but damaged the brand and didn’t really move much merchandise. Why would they invest more in an element that isn’t printing money?

Disney pushing the cartoons and TV shows makes sense because they hit on all 3 elements

I know they killed her in the comics, at least I think I remember that, but is Ventress being dead in modern canon or is it part of the retconned stuff? I would not mind them going more with her, she was pretty badass.
