I saw an article earlier today that said Disney is likely canceling the new Rian Johnson trilogy. Not sure if that's old news or even true. I would be thrilled if it was true. It said Kathleen Kennedy may also get fired, Disney hates TLJ, Rian Johnson completely abandoned what TLJ was supposed to be about and killed off Luke early, and Colin Trevorrow was fired from episode 9 because he was furious about what Rian Johnson was doing with ep 8. Interesting. Really wish they would have just hired someone like Joss Whedon to write the whole trilogy. Not sure if he still has it but his Buffy writing was exceptional and he knows how to write an awesome mythology about destiny. Plus he's a SW fan.

Kathleen Kennedy has reignited her lightsaber. The lead producer and architect of the Star Wars franchise has renewed her contract to remain president of Lucasfilm for another three years, through 2021, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Any news on who will be writing/directing the next trilogy? Please let it not be Rian so that there can be at least some hope.


Maybe try Star Trek?

Quote:
Rian Johnson however confirmed on Twitter his trilogy is still on despite all the fuss. And he certainly did it in the most Rian Johnson fashion. Replying to a twitter user, Johnson confirmed that his is indeed still working on a Star Wars trilogy.

I post this with absolutely ZERO intent to bring politics into this discussion (never thought I'd have to say that in a Star Wars thread), nor is it intended to diminish the opinions of those here who sincerely disliked the film. I just find this to be interesting.:

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Negative Buzz Amplified by Russian Trolls, Study Finds

An academic paper finds that half of criticism aimed at director Rian Johnson was politically motivated.

Did Star Wars: The Last Jedi destroy the franchise and permanently rupture the fandom as its critics (melodramatically) have accused it of doing?

According to a new academic paper by researcher Morten Bay, the answer is clearly no.

The paper, titled Weaponizing The Haters: The Last Jedi and the strategic politicization of pop culture through social media manipulation, examines the online response to 2017’s The Last Jedi, a movie that has come to be considered controversial amongst the larger fanbase of the franchise.

Bay suggests that reputation may not be earned, and instead “finds evidence of deliberate, organized political influence measures disguised as fan arguments,” as he writes in the paper’s abstract. He continues, “The likely objective of these measures is increasing media coverage of the fandom conflict, thereby adding to and further propagating a narrative of widespread discord and dysfunction in American society. Persuading voters of this narrative remains a strategic goal for the U.S. alt-right movement, as well as the Russian Federation.”

The paper analyzes in depth the negative online reaction, which is split into three different camps: Those with a political agenda, trolls, and what Bay calls “real fantagonists,” which he defines as genuine Star Wars fans disappointed in the movie. His findings are fascinating; “Overall, 50.9% of those tweeting negatively [about the movie] was likely politically motivated or not even human,” he writes, noting that only 21.9% of tweets analyzed about the movie had been negative in the first place.

"A number of these users appear to be Russian trolls," he writes of the negative tweets.

Amazing! Even the Russian hackers were so disgusted by the movie they took time off from political tampering to show their hate for it.
