I'll believe it when I see it...

Still hasnt happened unfortunately

Still waiting for this demon to leave or get fired.

Blah. Seems like there's a new report every week about Kennedy getting fired . How many times do they have to cry wolf before people should just stop believing these reports? Until Disney themselves issue a statement saying she's fired, I just assume she's got a job from now til the end of time.

Yeah, hard to put stock in this when these stories have been circulating since the beginning of the year and she's still there. I've no doubt her leash is very small @ the moment given the expensive reshoots needed to salvage Rogue One _ (which they did IMO), the polarizing reaction to _TLJ and the subsequent fan revolt and the complete debacle that was Solo , but unless they're simply waiting to distance themselves from those events a bit to be able to spin the story as "Mutually parting ways", she seems entrenched.

Because she basically took a slam dunk franchise and somehow managed to fuck it up with politics/SJW/gender issues. Pretty self explanatory stuff. :grin:

@OddRob Not to those who like the franchise. I think It's a pretty fresh take on a franchise that is otherwise outdated. We saw George Lucas try to take a crack at it. Remember Jar Jar Binks? Episodes 1 - 3 had some major issues, Mainly CGI authenticity (not really those). But mostly the issues I had were episode two not tying to the third enough. Kind of boring. lol.

But I wouldn't say that made him a demon or a clown.

You must be one of those 'fans' that like anything that has the word Star Wars in it. And thats cool if you are. But just cause it has SW in the title dosent make it a good film. And the last batch of films have proven that. And please do not bring up Episodes 1-3...we shall never speak of them....ever.

Rogue one was alright after the first hour of crappy buildup. Should not have to wait for an hour of movie for it to finally become alright.

@mcse2000ca Rogue one was alright after the first hour of crappy buildup. Should not have to wait for an hour of movie for it to finally become alright.

There's something to be said about having a story, not just a bunch of cinematic effects. This isn't The Avengers.

Yes, that's called a premise. What's your point?
