Sometimes there is the situation, when you want to say or do something, but not knowing why, you do the opposite. The same must have been with the Disney executives, who read the script of The Last Jedi by Ryan Johnson. They wanted to say something like "What?!?!". Instedy they uttered: "Excellent! Let's do this!". Here is how The Last Jedi buried the Star Wars franchice

No, it should have ended after the
one with the cartoon dog, Jar Jar.
That's the last one I saw and I
walked out long before it was over.

I didn't like civilians suddenly able to pick up light sabers, it's over. They won't quit until the people quit paying.

There will be nine, as that is what George Lucas promised. IIRC, the original plan was for "Episode IX" to be released in 2001...

Just as long as it doesn't end with a male and a female Jedi heading off somewhere and "a long time later" reaching a planet "in a galaxy far, far away"...

Kinda sorts SW-related note: GSN recently aired an episode of What's My Line? from I think around the late 1950s with Debbie Reynolds as the mystery guest, and "it just so happened" that her new boyfriend, Eddie Fisher, was backstage as well. I wonder how things turned out between the two of them...

Lol. Republicans for big business suggesting a franchise making top dollars suddenly end!

Star Wars is literally awful. If I ever get tricked into a midnight viewing or w/e, I'm dressing up as some Harry Potter goblin or somethin'.

Last year's Rogue One was the best of the franchise.
Unlike Lucas's original vision, the Star Wars movies will go well past the original nine movies.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
