    Before Disney's corporate status got too large for its own good, I'd have called this a compliment.

    While I agree with you to a huge extent (especially with them killing off Luke, the Solo movie, and TLJ), Disney + already has contracts in-place for other Star Wars IPs, including, but not limited to, The Mandalorian. I also hear that supposedly the terms of said contracts also specify said present and future entries, will be exclusive to Disney +, and won't run in movie houses.

    I actually feel really bad for star wars fans I haven't seen other star wars film besides the force awakens but I've been told this is like the end and it seems very disappointing for the star wars fans

    So do I. For me, starting the Luke Skywalker story 42 years ago with EP. IV, and then building up his determination to destroy the Empire, through EPs. V&VI, only to be killed off, was a HUGE letdown for me-as well as waiting those same 42 years to show Princess Leia's powers. I actually liked Force Awakens for the most part, and Rogue One, but after those, it went downhill from there IMO. The Mandalorian (from what I've seen so far), looks pretty good.

    Disney did the same thing with TRON: Legacy and pretty much setup TRON: Uprising/any other TRON movies (as did Tomorrowland) to die, with The Disney XD channel. Even though I like those 2 entries, I wish Steven Lisberger had bought the rights back and either, create his own studio to do the TRONiverse as he and Bonnie MacBird had intended, OR that he had gone to another studio. The house of mouse (going back to their animated features from 1942) has a bad habit of killing off characters.

    It felt like Iron Giant. Which is good.

    Disney: *Buys Marvel, Star Wars, Fox* Look at this stuff. Isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?

    Optimus: Mickeytron must be stopped. No matter the cost.

    (Wanted to integrate "You'll never stop at one!" but they're way past one at this point...)

    Speaking as a Star Wars fan AND a Movie fan / Cinephile, I would highly recommend Ignoring the screaming SW fan boys who disingenuously pretend the SW prequels don’t exist and watch the Force Awakens and especially, The Last Jedi; coupled with gorgeous cinematography, was a deeper film than any Star Wars film has so far had a right to be. The Red Room Fight Sequence has to be seen! It’s how every Jedi Lightsaber fight should be; fast paced, gracefully violent and brutal as opposed to the Stick Twirling contests the prior films had (the Darth Maul Duel being the one exception). As a Star Wars fan, I love the films, but as a Cinephile, I can admit that A Good Star Wars film and a Good Film are very mutually exclusive things (Empire was a Fluke Starbuck).

    The red room(if its ren and rey vs the guard) fight doesn't work for me, because it tries to be to realistic. And realistic sword fights as with realistic martial arts fights are actually boring and over in seconds.

    A scene that best explains it is the fight scene between Donnie Yen and Jet Li in Hero. Where they stand in front of each other before the fight and imagine it in a spectacular scene lasting for minutes. Just for the real fight to be over in 2 or 3 moves.

    The fight with darth maul is full of unrealistic mistakes, but the acrobatic choreography of it makes it working so well on the screen.

    btw. the last star wars trilogy ended up as big mess as bayformers
