Spoilers - The Emperor is back, and we had zero foreshadowing in eps 7 and 8. They really are shooting from the hip. 

This is really hard to understand for me. It shouldn't be that difficult to plan a trilogy in advance in a coherent way, being Disney and having all the money in the world.

From the outside it seems Rian Johnson made his film totally in isolation, ignored or contradicted a lot of stuff that happened in the first one and didn't care for what was coming next.

I still think THE LAST JEDI is kinda interesting in many ways but how could the Disney corporation let it happen without interference? They meddled big time with SOLO, which is in comparison a very minor film.

Maybe they'll pull the miracle of bringing it all together with RISE OF SKYWALKER in a way that makes sense, but I find it unlikely.

Even the worst of his movies, not to mention projects like the Clone Wars cartoon, are idiosyncratic and personal in ways the created-by-committee Disney products don't even try to emulate.

Agreed. I don't like the prequels for the most part but I think they're possibly better than what we're getting now and at least it was Lucas' vision.

******

I read somewhere that Disney lets Marvel Studios & LucasFilm run as they wish... as long as they don't do something blatantly offensive. With SOLO, I believe I heard Kathleen Kennedy butted heads with directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller over their comedic sensibilities towards the film.

My guess is that Kennedy honestly didn't feel fit was necessary to have one singular narrative throughout this trilogy.... instead she let each film make express their own take on the story and keep the fans guessing.

Hard to understand for me as well.

-C!

That's a very diplomatic way of saying "They have no idea WTF they are doing other than generating content for content's sake"  :-)

Plus that contradicts the whole point of them dumping the EU and creating their own canon. And having their "Star Wars Story Team" moderating all of the media to make sure it fits. (Comics, video games, novels, etc)

I thought that @ the time Jozef. ‘We don’t have any books to mine.’

That’s ‘cause you burned them all!

I feel like they just wanted to end "the Skywalker saga" and have it over with already.

And because of that, I doubt we will ever see Rey, Poe, Finn or any of those characters again. Future stories will go to new places and involve new plot dynamics. At least, I hope it will.

As for "we don't have any more," she is either being disingenuous as hell or she's suffered brain damage that made her forget the vast library of Star Wars books, cartoons, comic books, etc. Lucasfilm put out over the years--including while she's been there.

If the rumors of a Palpatine series/movie are true, then that’s why you
won’t see Rey or the others any more. Disney’s ongoing changing of
the Skywalker saga to the Palpatine saga.

Say what? I’m usually up on rumours, but this is beyond ridiculous. If
this happens, I’ll be so disappointed

Probably bogus, James... my older cousin is a huge STAR WARS fan who follows a notorious YouTuber named "Mike Zeroh," and this sounds like the kind of nonsense that he just makes up every day, for the benefit of clicks.

The first chapter of the "High Republic" book series was posted and it really sounds dreadful. (The first chapter features an opening "crawl" setting up the story and it was painful to read.

High Republic. They sat around talking about the Force and smoked a lot of weed.
