(Rumor) Disney Stars Wars Could Be Removed from Canon (or simply ignored)

Force Awakens to much i
of a rehash IMHO. At least it was enjoyable enough but it doesn't hold up to well on multiple rewatched not with the knowledge of what comes after it.

I think its fine on its own. But yeah, as a part of the entire trilogy it all feels like a collection of dangling unanswered plot threads. Its a shame really, because it had potential, and the cast was fantastic. I hope this doesn't stain the resume of any of them.

I suspect it will.

Adam Driver is very good along with Oscar. They'll be the break outs, the rest will have smaller roles.
 

The Sequals felt like a really well designed clown costume. It's really amazing how well designed it is until you think about the story and then it really falls apart. There is a Phantom Edit just waiting to be done with the material.

In contrast, the Prequals are a great fan doc that the author had no idea how to write.

Thank you for the Clone Saga but it really should have been done first to test it out before he even thought about writing the prequels.

I'm seriously enjoying the Favreau/Filoni/Rodriguez era but it still surprises me Disney didn't do with Star Wars, what they did with Marvel incredibly well and profitable (steal from the sources and put own twists that fit better).
 


Just the fact that they launched into a sequel trilogy without plotting the whole thing out in advance still boggles my mind.

agreed, and what is particularly perplexing is they already put me at ease by essentially doing a proof of concept movie (Guardians of the Galaxy).

but probably my ultimate issue with them is as follows: they didn't build with the idea that the majority of the original cast were old and they needed to build with that constraint. We lost at least 2 good people in the filming and it showed and the fact they were surprised showed massive idiocy on their part.

This is J.J. Abrams' sin above all others.

and before you say how can you plan for that, I merely look at Lord of the Rings (where the trilogy was done before it was released) and Marvel (they were smart enough to film all Stan Lee cameos ahead of time).
