    No, they really shouldn't.

    You don't want a movie that is deeply EU that the majority of the audience comes out thinking "Huh? What was that all about?"

    I think I do.

    The fans won't be able to carry the box office alone though.

    I think they know what "fans" want or they should do by now, but directors and writers will want to put their stamp on the franchise and be original so you're extremely unlikely to get that.

    If they did, they would get a million different answers and be back to square one.

    Can't agree enough. This applies to every single aspect of SW development and it staggers me when people don't see that. You see the TLJ haters wading into Pablo or Rian's mentions to tell them that they've destroyed SW for the fans, and that the fans know better. Well, I know a lot of fans who are very happy with the new films. Define "the fans". What it means is "me". And there is no way of catering perfectly to millions of "me"s, each with their own highly particular set of demands.

    Agreed. TLJ was ultimately judged as "polarizing." Well, the thing about polarizing is that it's not only people that disliked the movie-that also means there were many who loved it as well!

    That's what I find so frustrating when different movie sites post articles stating how a movie was "polarizing," or "controversial," painting it as if that is a negative trait. Movies like The Hobbit, BVS, Justice League, now TLJ...what those articles are not alluding to is how many people love those movies-and there are many, no matter what the naysayers may claim. People say "polarizing" and then talk about all the perceived flaws the movie had, and how bad it was. But there's a whole other side to that discussion, which also deserves attention IMO.

    It's totally a 'glass half empty/glass half full' thing.

    Only as long as you are telling them the next movie has to be Kenobi.

    Prediction! We’ll learn that Kenobi’s buddies used to call him Robey Wan Kenobi...you know...because of his robe.

    I hope a Kenobi movie explains how he got that rat tail haircut in the PT. My theory? Kenobi used a Flobee.

    Personally, I need to know about the salt shakers on Obi-Wan’s table during the Leia hologram scene. Where did he get them, and why?

    Its Disney’s presentation in a little under an hour at Cinemacon today. They do tend to reveal their upcoming slate. Just saying. It’s between 9am - 11am, Las Vegas time. So 5pm – 7pm for us in the UK.
