Earlier this week, Disney decided to shift the blame for the negative reaction to ‘Star Wars The Last Jedi‘ not to the director Rian Johnson, who was clearly in over his head. They did not blame it on the poor leadership of Kathleen Kennedy who does not seem to grasp what Star Wars is. Nope. Instead, Disney joined the bastion of left-wing conspiracy theorists to point the finger at Russia. Now Russia is clearly a geopolitical foe, but do you really think they care about a movie that basically encourages socialism? Nope. Here is my reaction from Twitter:
As you can see, I am not buying their bull malarkey. Neither should you, quite frankly.
The Russia conspiracy theory was disproved. Newsbusters pointed out that the original purveyor of that rumor, Morten Bay, backtracked heavily. He told the press, “There’s no evidence Russians did anything unusual or meaningful.”
Disney needs to own up to their mistakes. They let JJ Abrams, a visually stunning director, but a poor storyteller, take the reigns. Rian Johnson, one of the worst directors to walk into Hollywood, was given the keys the kingdom for a poor sequel. Now, they’re giving Kennedy a three year extension on her contract despite the terrible way she has handle this franchise.
Hopefully, it is all just a stop-gap to get Disney through the dreaded Episode IX and then they will clean house. Only time will tell, but the truth of the matter is, Disney has ruined Star Wars. Rogue One is the only redeeming film in this SJW spin factory.
At this point, Disney just needs to start over and pretend the ‘sequel trilogy’ never happened. Perhaps it could all just be a fever dream of Han Solo while he was sealed in carbonite.
