‘Star Wars’ fans aren’t exactly thrilled with Rian Johnson’s ‘The Last Jedi’ explanation

Rian Johnson is on a well-deserved winning streak after global success Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery although his heart is clearly still in a galaxy far, far away. He has said repeatedly that he would like to return war of stars to finally make his long-in-development trilogy of films, and there is every indication that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy’s door is open to him.

If he has returned then expect controversy as many fans are still pissed about 2017 The Last Jedi. In an interview earlier this week, Johnson tried to explain how he wanted to make “a movie” rather than just a piece of intellectual property, saying, “I love an ending where you burn the Viking boat in the sea.”

Fans have been eagerly debating this and whether it means he was the best choice for the middle entry in the sequel trilogy:

The top answer states that the real problem with the sequel trilogy was that it lacked an overall vision and let JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson do what they wanted:

The counterpoint is that The Rise of Skywalker it’s clear that Disney and Lucasfilm are trying to back down The Last Jedi in a misguided attempt to placate fans:

Maybe it would have been best to decide the story of the trilogy in advance:

Is this more Kathleen Kennedy’s work with directors (see also the Nightmare productions of Villain One and solo):

Perhaps Johnson was the wrong choice for this particular film:

We suspect his “burn it down” philosophy would have worked better for him Episode IX:

But maybe the whole venture was doomed from the start:

Disney’s sequel trilogy will go down as one of the greatest missed opportunities in cinema history. Regardless of your opinion on each individual chapter, it’s sad that they failed to bring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher together in a single scene, and the disastrous The Rise of Skywalker left the whole thing with a bad taste in your mouth.

The silver lining is that Disney and Lucasfilm appear to have learned from these mistakes, with the Disney Plus shows (particularly Andor) proves that great war of stars Content is possible under the right circumstances.

We’d still love to see Johnson come back to him war of starsalthough giving it a trilogy outside of the Skywalker saga is absolutely the smartest way.
