Spoilers, duh! Has social media been taken over by Disney press-bots? It gets very distressing when twentysomethings declare the standalone Star Wars film, Rogue One as “the best Star Wars movie ever”!
When Disney paid big bucks for Lucasfilm, it was with a view to spinning the Star Wars franchise into a shared universe, very much like the hugely popular and successful Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Do we really need movies set in the Star Wars shared universe? Well, if you are Disney and desiring to recoup some of the $4 billion they paid George Lucas for the franchise, then definitely!

The most anticipated movie of the year has released a new trailer. If I am understanding the implications of what is depicted in this trailer correctly, after the Battle of Endor and the Return of the Jedi, something happened to thwart the actual return of the Jedi because 30 years later, the very idea of […]
