Disney has announced there will be an Obi Wan series on the new Disney streaming channel. Ewan McGregor will be Obi Wan.

So there will be a Mandolorian show, an Obi Wan show, and a Cassion Andor show. Lets hope they are better than the last POS movie.

Yes, of course there will be, because the whores who run Disney wouldn't even think of missing out on making a dime by squeezing every last bit out of Star Wars. Quantity, not quality. You got a quarter? They want it.

Disney streaming channel. Another likely channel added to the list of channels I don't get.

You take that back! Solo was way better than The Last Jedi! Well, everything except L3-37...

Solo was a piece of dog shit. If there's something worse than dog shit, that's what The Last Jedi is.

In my opinion, of course.

Well, yes you are correct, I wasn't thinking. Solo was after the turd.

There was a line in the sci-fi series “Dark Matter” where they are talking about going to see a movie, “Star Wars: Episode 26” or something like that...
Yes, Disney is absolutely going to run this franchise into the ground.

After Rogue One, everything else was garbage. Disney will kill Star Wars to the point it won't be tolerable anymore.

Maybe Disney should take a look at the utter failure of their "Star Wars Experience" at their theme park, and take a hint.

They basically already have. The Last Jedi was the last straw for me. Not another dime to Disney for anything to do with the franchise. And the fact that they’re putting in copyright claims on fan fiction material on YouTube and profiting off the ad revenue from amateur quality work which is better than what they’ve been producing is even more disgusting.

Fuck Disney. They no longer get money from me. Like Para pretty much said, they only care about money. They don’t give a flying fuck about making quality. It’s quantity, that’s all they care about. Look at the MCU. First films were decent, solid, then one by one, shit. Disney knows they can make more money by just pumping low quality out and that’s exactly what they’ll do.

Disney purposely has been putting out their 4k discs with poor picture quality and sound quality compared to their competitors, to drive you into their streaming service, where the quality will be better. The company is a shit hole so don’t support anything that they do. It was one of the very first companies to lay off a bunch of American workers and replace them with H1B Visa Indians. They’d make their employees train the Indians (shadowing) so they could take their jobs. And if you didn’t stay and train the Indian to do your job they wouldn’t give you your severance package. And people go out in droves for whatever SuperHo bullshit they put out. Damn shame how stupid people are.



OK, so we got a trooper pulls someone over, we got a shooting, these folks drive by, there's a high-speed pursuit, ends here and then this execution-type deal.

The funny thing is with a lot of Disney policy changes (like only Sequel Trilogy stuff at Galaxy's End at Disney World), they were making sure that George Lucas didn't eat into any of their profit margin. Now, it seems like Disney is circling back around admitting defeat with their SJW bullshit Star Wars. This is a good video explaining this:

I’m no conspiracy theorist, but seems extremely plausible.

George Lucas has always had some pretty good foresight on where his best earning interests would lie. He signed on with 20th Century Fox for Star Wars (and they really needed a win at the time and did well to pick up the film), but retained the licensing rights to all merchandise, which is where he made his fortune. It would make all the sense in the world if he did something similar with with Disney, gambling on them not being able top his original characters, and he was apparently correct, which makes total sense as to why they’re torpedoing the franchise.

The big problem is, Disney didn’t respect the original material or the fanbase they thought they had purchased along with the rights. They skinned the sheep instead of carefully shearing it, because, well... they bought it and it was theirs to do with as they wanted.

Get woke, go broke.

Aside from Disneys crap, I think Obi Wan sucks. His best moment was cutting the legs off Darth. Otherwise he fails all the time. Worst Jedi ever.

Ugh. THAT MOMENT?!?! "I have the high ground."

So bad. So so so very bad.

Actually the Mandalor story arc in Clone Wars was really well done, IMO. Obi Wan had a chance at love. Good story there.

Someone didn’t see The Last Jedi. It was explained that her parents were nobodies.

For the lair. Post of the year my man. Full mag into the bullseye. Kudos!
