Disney decided to do the same.
A Star Wars film will make money because it's Star Wars...
I find it ridiculous .... blah ..blah ...blah...mentality that plagues the internet ...blah ..blah ...blah ...And still with such a rudimentary understanding of film as a medium.
All the average users need some kind of validation of their worth I suppose. What compels them to elevate their opinion above all others?
You didn't like this? This isn't Star Wars for you? Well then how about this... make your own star wars movie. Now tell me you can't because of the budget? I've seen wonderful Star Wars fan films shot on a $5 budget. I don't have actors? I garuntee you the local theatre in your area may have a few people handy. I don't have the time? Then how come you're on here arguing on message boards when you could be making a film? I don't know how to make a film? We have a wonderful thing called the internet. Thank you. Now don't tell me you can, show me you can. Thank you.
