Under The Reign Of Disneys Lucasfilm, Star Wars Has
gone from one of the biggest movies of all time in the force awakens to the flop of the year with solo a Star Wars story in between them was Rian Johnson’s, the last Jedi a movie which does have its fans, but which cost a huge chunk of the audience to jump off Disney Star Wars bandwagon and instead actively riot against the direction. The franchise has taken but rather than focus on where Lucasfilm and filmmaker stepped wrong the media outlets covering beat the battle have almost exclusively focused on how toxic the Star Wars fan base itself has become most recently film makers like Christopher UK and James. Mangold joined the conversation one claiming he would never do a Star Wars movie if that’s how fans are going to respond the other continuing but in the end only. Hack directors will take on Star Wars. In this editorial.
I Will First Look Into The Popular
claim that Star Wars Fandom is toxic and adds some much-needed nuance to it with that established I will move on to the filmmakers who now have started speaking out against the fans give my take on the jab about only Hackus wanting to work on Star Wars before concluding with some suggestions of my own. The narrative repeated by multiple outlets is that Star Wars Fandom is toxic. Star Wars fans are described in the same terms used since Ghostbusters fans were the ones on blast terms like misogynist, racist white man Babies conveniently ignoring that there are plenty women and non–whites among the protesters and the salt rights deplorable Trump supporters again conveniently ignoring that half the fans hate them as much or more than they do what this new Astana. Like when it was used against the fans of Ghostbusters Star Trek in Fantastic Four. This narrative is so simplistic so exaggerated so void of nuance.
It Becomes A Joke Because Behind
all the labeling behind all the missing of the mark. There is at the very least a grain of truth like in all fan basis among Star Wars fans there are those who take their seal a tad too far um at best the actor behind the punch line that is Jar Jar Binks recently joined the toxic fans conversation by saying that the episode 1 and Jar Jar backlash almost drove him to suicide. I can well believe that I remember interviews from before the release of episode 1, in which best talked about how badly he had been bullied as a kid, how much he felt like an unwanted outcast how he identified with Jar Jar. because of it and how he couldn’t wait for the audience response to his character. Once the movie opened, I remember thinking the aftermath must have been pretty hard on him.
Also Jake Lloyds Life Was More Or Less
destroyed by being in episode 1 and more recently, Kelly Marie Tran, the actress playing Rose Tico left Twitter. Oh the horrid she didn’t actually say why but the narrative ghosts it must have been because of a racist and sexist abuse from Star Wars fans and for all we know that may be the case. The Star Wars fan base includes a massive amount of people, most of whom are very civil in their discourse. But there is a minority who orange and since the number of Star Wars fans overall is so big, so is the absolute number of the relative minority that do take their vitriol a bit. Too far in my experience even the average Star Wars fans tend to be more passionate about Star Wars than the average fan of most anything else so the hardcore fans will really let you have it if you mess with Star Wars not because they’re white or alright or Trump supporters which they might not even be, but because they are really passionate about Star Wars, What the filmmakers need to understand this why that is however, circumstantial.
It May Be I Have A Theory On
the matter which I’ve discussed at greater length before. In short all of the most hardcore Star Wars fans I ever met or interacted with grew up with Star Wars. They didn’t discover it on their own. They were introduced to it by their parents often before they were infatuated with anything else and told that this is the greatest thing ever sharing. Those moments with family and loved ones while still young and impressionable is their recipe for not only nostalgia, but for making it part of who you are.

By Contrast, Those Who Were Exposed To
Star Wars much later in life like myself really don’t see what the fuss is all about but to those that grew up with the brand. Those who hold a childhood affection towards it. It may take on a near spiritual importance. They will be very protective of it because of what it represents and means to them. They’re happy to see it continue, but not in a way which to use a cliche destroys their childhoods what this should mean to filmmakers they said While there are a lot of properties out there, you can deconstruct all you want and twist and turn into they’re something radically different for what they once were Star.
Wars Is Not Among Those Properties.
There are some rules that need to be followed and that especially goes for the legacy characters. Rian Johnson says he distilled what Star Wars meant to him. In the last Jedi if that is the case. Then he must have gotten something very different out of it than most others.
Because A Lot Of Fans Seem
to agree that what he did to Luke Skywalker was tantamount to iconoclasm. Johnson has taken heat from fans ever since and recently another filmmaker was caught in the crossfire on June 28th screenwriter turned director ChristopherNK] posted a tribute to author Rob Serling and praised him for inserting progressive and socially conscious messages into his stories. This led to some pushback which escalated quickly when Rian Johnson got involved many nasty messages back and forth. Later UK tweeted that he didn’t understand why Johnston was. was still on Twitter and that any desire him might have had to make a Star Wars movie was now gone.
Star Wars Had Lost The Director It
never had and for all we know was never going to have this didn’t stop the media from betraying it as toxic fans cost a potential director to drop out addressing the situation. A week later, James Mangold’s, the famed director of Logan was also attached to direct the Boba Fett ontology movie if that error is put back into production, tweeted that at the points when worth writing and directing big franchises has become the emotionally loaded equivalent of writing a new chapter of the Bible with the probable danger of being stoned and called a blasphemer. Then a lot of bolder minds are gonna leave these films to hacks and corporate boards. Sometimes just being quiet is the better course. of action and this might have been one of those times let’s break down why first of all.
When You Are Writing And Directing A
big franchise movie. You have been tasked with managing what amounts to hundreds of millions of other people’s money resources. You have been entrusted with it should be emotionally loaded and you should feel the pressure. Secondly. Star Wars is not just a big franchise.
Mission Impossible Is A Big Franchise.
The Fast and the Furious is a big franchise and the Pirates of the Caribbean is a big franchise and in the bigger scheme of things no one cares about any of them subverting and reinventing them will be just fine as long as the end results keeps people entertained and the box office receipts glowing. In addition to being nearly a big franchise. Star Wars is an institution more than that it is. part of our cultural heritage and even I as a casual fan at best recognized that writing a new chapter of the Bible comparisons aren’t entirely unfair because to a lot of people out there that is in some figurative sense what you are doing so Yes feel that pressure don’t for a second think you are making just another big franchise movie messing up Jurassic Park and messing up Star Wars are two very different things.
Then We Get To The Most Infuriating Part
of Mangles tweet in which he essentially says that fear of fan backlash will cost quote bolder minds which I think it’s fair to interpret us or tour filmmakers with a vision to leave Star Wars so that Hack directors will hound them instead under the guidance of corporate boards ignoring for the moment just how condescending and attitude that is towards his fellow filmmakers. whom he would label Hacks I disagree with the implied main point that bald minded or tourists are somehow desirable for Star Wars Don’t get me wrong. Some of the best movies of all time have been made by bold minded authors and visionaries like Charlie Chaplin, Akira, Kurosawa, Alfred, Hitchcock,’s, Stanley, Kubrick Barnet, Herzog, Pedro, Almodóvar and even Wes Anderson to name but a few they’re all makers of great standalone films in which they had full creative freedom operating word being standalone because if you let one bold mind through a tour of his way with another bold mind editor’s vision the results might not be pretty case in point a tour filmmaker Angley did some pretty bold mind the choices on this 2003 Hulk movie that worked out so badly that five years later. It took a director that mangled probably would label hack Louis Leterrier to wash away the damage caused by I’m Least bold minded choices if only Universal hadn’t vetoed Mark Ruffalo for banner and insisted on Ed Norton, who would go on to make some bold minded behind the scenes issues that movie might have been something truly special it could be that mangled refers to himself and what he did with Logan as bold minded, which from a Studios point of view.
It No Doubt Was, But From
the fan point of view. Logan will simply be Wolverine movie they always wanted, but never thought they were going to get man. Volt made the right choices on it, which were in keeping with the characters and the spirit of what came before imagine for a moment if Ryan Johnson had made the same bold mind. The choices on the last Jedi that Mangles did on Logan that is have him be of grisilde old man weathered by a hard life but who stayed true to his purpose and friends who after some struggle takes his unknown doctor under his wing finds Redemption and then go south in a blaze of glory that shall live on forever but doing that in Star Wars wouldn’t have been bold it would have been be joist so natural and so obvious that even a corporate board should have been able to figure it out.
A Hack Director Should Have Been
able to film it and the movie would have received standing ovations from the fans. For it what was bulge was making Luke a quitter who tried to kill a enhanced child turned his back on rate for real and kicked the bucket after merely projecting himself low-key style That kind of ball-minded filmmaking is why we’re having this backlash and conversation to begin with. So if you were bold-minded filmmakers like that want to do Star Wars that might not be such a bad thing now don’t get me wrong even within the franchise film setting of tour filmmakers can Excel Marvel has had great success with that because.
