Mark Hamill Doesn't Care About Star Wars Anymore - In an interview with ABC, Luke Skywalker has expressed his displeasure with Star Wars and doesn't care to return.
The way lucasfilm and Darth Kennedy has treated Hamill and Luke Skywalker is disgusting. I want him back but hell, I don't blame him at this point. They jerked him around so badly.
I liked his arc in TLJ, but losing Luke...that would be a huge blow. It will hurt box office revenue too. People came to see Luke in TLJ.
Episode IX needs Luke. At this point the ST is a lost cause.
I think it's a lost cause just because of the clear lack of an overarching plot planned. The shift from The Force Awakens to The Last Jedi is jarring and with Abrams coming back to do Episode 9 I see him making more of a follow-up to TFA than TLJ, which will leave the trilogy feeling disjointed and incoherent.
Kathleen Kennedy and Disney are DESTROYING Star Wars. Rian Johnson basically pissed on the legacy in order to cowtow to the PC female empowerment mantra. He literally DESTROYED the legacy of Luke Skywalker. This entire 6+ film arc has been at it's core about the Skywalker family, and in large part Luke specifically. Rian turns him into a senile old hermit, who is more interested in pole fishing and milking space moose. Oh yeah and he is now a pshycopathic killer who tried to murder his nephew/blood relative while he was asleep. Disney is determined to destroy and emasculate any remaining male characters, and move females to all lead roles. Is it any coincidence we have 3 films under Disney's 'guidance'. All 3 feature female leads. The Star Wars Battlefront 2 game campaign (which is apparently canon now and everyone made a big deal about Lucasfilm being involved)...features a...wait for it...female lead character. It is all getting to be a bit much.
Let's see how Solo shapes up. Ron Howard is a very talented film maker, but it was not until very late stages that he was brought in.
I cannot blame Mark Hamill. Frankly after reading the script (and assuming he has enough money) I would have walked. Then what would Rian and Kathleen going to do? ...oh they probably would have digitally inserted and then quickly killed him off. Maybe a space moose not keen on being milked....or he would have fallen while fishing. Who knows.
Everyone hated on George, and he did do wrong, but man he would NEVER have done what Disney did to Luke.
Worse part about Rian Johnson destroying SW with the Last Jedi was that Disney are still keeping him on for his own trilogy in the future.
They didn't get rid of him, I mean what the hell
He didn't give a fuck what the plan for the trilogy was and destroyed it. like Luke is why people went to see TLJ. now there's really no reason to see IX except to see how it ends. All the original cast is gone. fuck it. Darth Kennedy is ruining Star Wars. Hand it over to the guy who did the Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. He is AMAZING. That's the best part of Star Wars now.
From a business point of view he is not the one to blame, it's the disney borad of a$$ holes. They are the ones who sign the contracts.
George Lucas is an amazing storyteller. his thing is that his execution with the prequels were off, even though I love the prequels. But if they kept Lucas's story for the Sequel Trilogy and had others direct it it would be masterful. Fuck disney. they are destroying star wars. I am not even interested in the Obi Wan film I've wanted for so long.
lol someone downvoted you?
Also it's not Kathleen Kennedy. It's Darth Kennedy.
what do you expect form pedophile disney
just curious how are they pedophile?
I've never cared about starwars. Just a film.
But easily the best actor in any of them is Harrison Ford.
Alec Guinness was the better actor.
Umm...Alec Guinness? Peter Cushing? Christopher Lee? Liam Neeson?
there are too many amazing actors to count. Natalie Portman just didn't care. Hayden overcompensated and is a good actor, just horrible direction. but whatever. SW has had some incredible actors. Who cares to say who is the better actor. I still think regardless of who is better, with what Mark was given, he did a better job than Harrison. Carrie was okay but they didn't give her anything meaty. They would have in IX I suppose, but now that's over. It's disgusting.
Good to see I'm not the only one who thought that movie was trash. The shit was TRASH!
Darth Kennedy is ruining SW and we're going to see a huge backlash now with this news. People don't care about Han Solo film. It will be horrible. IX will not get the draw it should. I doubt Hamill will return unless they give him a HUGE role. Rebels opened that door though, they could bring him back, but yeah. I don't know why they didn't give Star Wars to Dave Finoli to run. Clone Wars and Rebels is BY FAR the best SW material since the OT. No contest.
Dave Filoni needs a chance to direct a movie!! He is the natural choice and was groomed for this...which unfortunately is why I don't think he will ever get the chance. He runs counter to what Disney wants (to water down and PC the franchise, to use it as a platform for liberal garbage, and to emasculate all males, promote all racial characters etc). I fully expect openly gay characters soon, and for these trends to continue and ultimately get worse. I think they are going to paint Han Solo as a stooge, that only through interaction with Lando (who is made out to be all powerful...as he is a minority), and an unknown female (because of course female empowerment) becomes the hero we know. He will be dumbed down, made out to be a moron, and in general his legacy will be destroyed next......watch.
That’s just sad :(
So am i.
I'm done. I'll see it if I get invited to a free screening and can go to the premiere, but that's it.
I can't believe I'm not excited for an upcoming Star Wars movie. The Last Jedi was the only time I finished a Star Wars movie and just felt empty. Yes, Attack of the Clones was really bad, but I still felt like I watched a Star Wars movie. I felt confused because I know I should've felt amazing walking out of the theater but I just didn't. I even listened to people saying that you have to watch it again to let it sink in, which I did and it actually made me feel even worse. What makes it worse is that Rian and Kennedy know that it's a mess and they direct people to read excerpts from certain books to explain things. Never once have I had to read additional content to understand the direction of a Star Wars movie, you just watch it and it makes sense. Even though I know Force Awakens was basically a rehash of a New Hope (let's be honest), it still had original moments that were great and the humor was genuinely funny. Just wow...they really messed it up and I'm really not sure how they can fix it in the next one. But as cliche as it sounds, I still have a little bit of hope left, lets see what JJ can do.
Wholeheartedly agree that it was 200% worse on the second watch. I was actually cringing and left the theater shaking my head. Even my son was like WTF...and he is a bigger fan than I am having read all the comics. Not only destroyed Luke's legacy, but also destroyed JJ's setups for the new trilogy. Rian is a wrecking ball....and they give him a new trilogy?? I just don't get it.
