When there are no fans with enthusiasm They’re mad at each other about what they love (and Everything else It’s gone) as if to become Only self-Sufficient understanding To know that they have a problem, but not self-Sufficient understanding To truly grow as a person. In this game of fandom and franchises, there really is no winner, and that’s especially true for the poor. Star Wars in the The Disney Age.

One of the three films that make up the Sequel Trilogy and showcases Disney’s inconsistent control of George Lucas’ sci-fi. A fantasy epic, it is. Star Wars: The Last Jedi Which enters the conversation a lot. It is now. Five years, but People can’t get Rian Johnson’s movie out of their mouths, and for a variety of reasons: either it’s part of a franchise. Very bold steps Until the day with the one you love Andor And Ahsoka Tano making a wise (and narratively convenient) conclusion to the departure of the Jedi Order; Or Where is the franchise?

But whether or not you’re on the alert for a movie that features characters trying to break out of cycles, that message doesn’t come through in real life. In fact, how much fire can not be explained The Last Jedi It is lit from below Star Wars fanbase, and how ill-equipped Disney was to handle the backlash that ultimately reached those fans’ pockets. Most of them Fans face their own level of difficulty to some extent.but the fusion of fandom a A device certified by the company, and when fans refused to tell bad actors to shut up and go away, a beast was created that would never go away.
