I really don't have high hopes for the new ones at all. First we get an original trilogy of masterpieces, then slightly butchered prequels directed by the creator himself (I think), and now a Disney bought product that is now only greenlit because Lucas does not own Star Wars anymore. Since I'm a fan, I am obviously gonna watch them, but they're highly unnecessary.
Okay I hope the Robocop bombs in Box Office sales just for that. That's a disgrace to the original considering after 11-12 revisions they finally managed to get a R Rating.
In terms of Star Wars though, I don't see the necessity to milk the franchise. In my opinion and I don't care if I get attacked by other fans for saying this, the entire saga was about Anakin & Vader as the focal point. What are they going to do now that he's a Force Ghost? I just don't see the main story being about anyone else and being as successful and captivating.
well to be blunt i think it was always 3 trilogies . yea the last 3 blew big time but cmon man lets be real what franchise isnt milked now a days
Yeah but you clearly disregarded what I said. The entire saga, or both trilogies, whatever you want to call it were all about Anakin/Vader as the focal point, so therefore the story should end with him. It's one thing to milk a franchise by keeping the story intact but they're going to have to go with a completely different direction now that he's a Force Ghost.
I think that the new trilogy shouldn't take place in the Rise of the Empire era or the Rebellion era.
I think it should take place during the Mandalorian Wars or the Great Galactic War (but that seems highly unlikely).
