Nerdrotic and some other YouTubers believe that Disney will reboot the OT trilogy. Do you think they would be that stupid? Although from what I hear about the Obi-Wan series it sounds like they are pushing Leia to be the main Star so I guess I couldn’t put it past them.

Since it’s pretty normal now for the shill media to crap on the original or source material whenever reboots/remakes/adaptations are done it would be ridiculous to see them try to gaslight everyone by saying that the original OT was never that good or why Lucas was evil.

They have attacked Tolkien so nothing surprises me. It will hurt me to see the attacks on CS Lewis when Netflix craps on his work.

Wouldn’t surprise me, they will make Luke useless, Leia as the mc, and Han a soy boy. Chewie will be either female or trans along with C-3PO. They will also incorporate a new alien species that lives “beyond a gender binary”.

Lando would be a pansexual fighting for marginalized people. But I can honestly see them telling us that the OT was not as good as we remember

They basically made him that in the Solo movie.

Oh yea. That droid was annoying

They've had shills doing that already by hanging on a few scene goofs (Storm Trooper hitting head among those)

Oh yea. Also after TLJ the shills were saying that ESB was poorly received

The real test is going to be whether TLJ is vindicated by history the way TESB - also known as the best SW film ever made - has been.

Were I a betting man, I know where I'd put my money.

Bob Gale, when asked if we'll ever see a reboot of Back to the Future, said "Over my dead body."

So they'll wait for him to die.

You know they will.

You are right. They have no respect for anything and I’m sure they would gaslight people and act like the original was horrible

No. At the very least, not until George Lucas is dead. It's bad enough what they did to Luke with the Rey trilogy, but they wouldn't be so stupid as to completely reboot that whole story. Even George, with all that money they gave him, would say "don't watch this shit, they are going out of their way to ruin it."

Half the draw for people like this seems to be forcing you to face their destruction of the stories you cherished. I cannot think of any reason why a person like that would hesitate to show their contempt for Lucas.

Norenia 10 points ago +10 / -0

Telling the creator of the most beloved sci-fi franchise in history to fuck off, to his face, as you go and officially ruin everything about his franchise, will absolutely cause an investor and consumer revolt that Disney likely wouldn't survive. George has mentioned about what they did with his "notes and suggestions," but hasn't gone out of his way to speak against them. The moment this changes, consumer war gets even hotter than it is right now. And rebooting the franchise to do their usual shit absolutely will do that. Disney's reputation is tanking on all fronts right now, this absolutely would kill them.

I wish, but George was forced to apologize for his disney trilogy "White slavers" comment. He already said it was trash, and people stil guzzled the 'slop.

I’m convinced George must be under some non disparagement agreement. I remember he said they went away from his vision and I remember hearing he was pissed they threw out his outlines and hated TLJ. I feel when he dies his true feelings will come out

Norenia 6 points ago +6 / -0

I doubt he'd sign such a thing if messing with his movies was on the menu. And even if he did, even I have to believe there is a limit to what a person will accept before it becomes it becomes imperative to speak out, damn the consequences.

Times like this I am glad I got the DVDs.

I will say: They may try, but that would be a bridge too far for the average normie. They were already kind of turned off by modern Star Wars. Completely nuking the OT would probably, actually, get people to leave Disney in massive numbers. Which is already happening even with their tepid toe dipping they have done.

dekachin 7 points ago +7 / -0

They can't actually reboot the original. What they have tried so far is to get as close as they can to doing that without actually doing it, to try to launder nostalgia into a new series, but that totally failed and was mocked.

As far as I'm concerned, every conservative ought to be boycotting Disney. I know I am, and I have been ever since they fired Gina Carano.

Smith1980 [S] 5 points ago +5 / -0

I cancelled Disney plus around that time. Also when I realized I’d be happier reading legends stuff and didn’t care for what they do with Star Wars I was done. Carson was last straw

Disney deserves to die.

Ender910 5 points ago +5 / -0

They absolutely would be that bold, insidious, and retarded. Unless by some miracle Lucas had specifically prohibited that in the sale/contract.

GoofTroop186 5 points ago +5 / -0

They eventually will, but in the same Way they’re rebooting the lion king and beauty and the beast. It’ll be a mostly shot-for-shot nostalgia bait as opposed to throwing out the whole series. Remember Leias actual death is canon so they’d have to actually redo everything

Galean 5 points ago +5 / -0

Except they did do some changes in those as well. In the live adaptation Bella was an inventor not just a smart girl that likes to read and they added some black background characters. I assume that there are other minor changes that I can't remember at the moment. In a way, it was the success of Beauty and the beast that gave them the courage to change more and more towards "modern adaptations".

I don't know. Part of me wants to say that Star Wars merch makes them so much money that they don't want to screw with the OT.

On the other hand, Disney bought Star Wars because they wanted to have something that appeals to boys the way Disney princesses appeal to girls. Despite this, they made a bunch of movies that pander to girls. So maybe they just can't help themselves.

And they lost money probably by making Luke a grumpy hermit
