    I’ll believe it when I see it

    Thank the Force! Kathy Kennedy has zero respect for the fandom who elevated and supported the franchise over the past 4 decades and helped grow Star Wars into a multi billion dollar franchise. The sequel trilogy could’ve made Disney billions, but instead KK betrayed George and threw his sequel trilogy in the trash and instead forced her own perverted version of Star Wars in fans, where they methodically killed off each of the legacy heroes (Luke, Han & Leia) that we all loved… because her version of Star Wars prioritizes identity politics over the actual story. It was always about her overinflated ego, never about fan service. When a corporation decides to not serve fans, they lose money, a lot of money. The audience score for The Last Jedi on Rotten Tomatoes tells it all.

    What makes you think it’s going to happen now? These rumors have been swirling for years. Fandom has begged for it to happen for even longer.

    1. Exactly! This is just fuel for the rumor mill and not actually news.

        Ever since the ungracefull firing of Gina Carano and the unmitigated disasters that was the sequel trilogy i’ll have nothing to do with star wars till she is gone. 38 years of love for Star Wars in the trash bin.

    I hope she’s thrown out the door. And with her every single idiot responsible for taking things where they are now. I want fun movies and TV shows. Those people want woke points. Enough with that. I haven’t watched anything new that’s feom Disney in a while. And as of Star Wars, haven’t watched anything since The Last Jedi. And to be honest, The Force Awakens was bad too, but I did give them another chance. Rogue One was ok.

    Kathleen Kennedy has made a lot of decisions that seems extremely counterproductive to the further development of the star wars brand.

    She closed down the extremely popular Lucasart computer game department and sold the game rights to the łootbox happy EA games.

    She cancelled The immensely popular SW Clone wars and SW Rebels animated TV series.

    She handled the continuity situation rather clunky, by terminating the SW comic contract with Dark Horse ( I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt, and ponder if that order came from her higher ups in Disney) but handing over the comic rights to Marvel, who as a company are removing themselves from the prolonged continuity/storyline storytelling style is rather counterproductive to a franchise that has survived solely on continuity through books and comics for roughly the last 3 decades.

    Which is why the same can be said for her cancelling of what is now referred to as the “Expanded Universe”.
    Alternatives could have been found, by say, making some books canon, while cutting the bad fluff out (I’ll be the first to admit that there is plenty of that) allowing future writers to build on expanding on already existing lore, so writers could move forward.

    Firing every single director except for JJ Abrams (the force awakens) and Rian Johnson ( Last Jedi) during production.

    Not using a clearly defined story layout for the last trilogy.

    In conclusion; Kathleen Kennedy has severly mismanaged the franchise, and stunted its potentially growth through a string of extremelybad business decisions, which in turn has earned her the ire of the fan base ( and let me just clarify, that the sexist comments directed at her from right wing trolls and the ” rage cultivating community” on YT is tasteless, and something that any true SW fan should refrain from)

    I’ll also state just for the record that I do support her decisions regarding cancelling the negotiation with Benioff and Weiss of GoT infamy, as well as the eventual but unavoidable firing of Gina Carano.
    Qanon isn’t good for anyone or anything.

      Although I greatly enjoyed Rogue One and Solo, I am not a fan of the majority of the other creative desicions she’s made. It’s nice to read a well thought out critique of her actions instead of the typical name calling comments about her usually descend into.

  6. Berephon

    Sadly, Kennedy will likely stick it out as a chief proponent of the cancel culture lunacy that pervades Disney at this time. I would love to see Favreau in her chair, but that would remove him from Mandalorian, and that would be sad.
