I blame Kathleen Kennedy. She's more interested in agenda pushing and quick profits, rather than a coherent plan or story, with likable characters. Instead, they kill off of the "old things", raping their characters to death, all so they can shell out their garbage "diversity" characters that are all the same flavor: boring as shit.

Kylo Ren: Whiny and unthreatening little bitch. The only "interesting" part of his character, was that he wanted to be cool by wearing a mask and being ruthless, rather than understanding who his grandfather was and why he was feared. He then destroys the mask, and his chasing of being his grandfather's copycat, in order to be a whiny little bitch.

Rey: Boring and perfect as the purest of snow, and is capable of doing whatever the plot needs to be done, at the correct time, to save everyone. All of the other characters constantly compliment and worship the ground she walks on. She is the "girl power" character at it's zenith: utterly better than everyone else, just so the writers can wank about how "diverse" and "feminist" they are. /vomit

Finn: Worthless beta male comedy relief. He is incompetent, cowardly, utterly useless, and exists only to be a token black guy and worthless male side character to make Rey look better. He seems to think that destroying a casino is going to "hurt" the rich people who own it, as though they aren't going to force all of the slave labor into cleaning it all up.

Poe Dameron: Best pilot my ass. He's a moron that gets all of his wingmen and most of the rebel fleet, slaughtered. All so he can toot his horn over how badass he is, even though it wasted vast amounts of rebel resources and manpower doing so. He's no OT Han Solo, that's for certain.

Snoke: No story, no characterization, no actual threat or reason for existing. Complete waste of time and effort, I feel bad for Andy Serkis that his talents were abused to make this trash.

Phasma: Speaking of complete wastes of time and effort, I am so sorry that they had to drag Gwendoline Christie through the mud just for her character to be embarrassingly easy to defeat both times, despite all of the "hype" and merchandise bullshit.

Rose Tico: Boring sack of potatoes that exists solely to be an author tract and a moron, with her "Don't kill what you hate, save what you love" bullshit, even though her sister died earlier in the film destroying "hate" directly in the form of the Dreadnaught. Just... ugh.

I'm certain I missed some, but Hux is probably the only character that I kind of like, even though he's a stereotypical screeching Nazi. Every single thing in these movies is fucking awful, all due to a lack of vision and a lack of standards. We lost the EU for this rancid shit, and I couldn't be angrier if I tried (and I have).

I thought China generally doesn't like Star Wars to begin with.

They were fine with it. Until the Sequel Trilogy, anyway. Just didn't like being pandered to by Disney treating them like they are morons who will go see a movie if it is "new" or "made by Disney". So, the Chinese audiences basically didn't like all of the "ugly" and "stupid" new characters, and told Disney to go fuck themselves.


Yeah, these people are far more intelligent than Disney, with their moronic "we're going to put an Asian character in TLJ, to get more Chinese filmgoers", could comprehend.

Nah, dog. It's not that.

I'd say it's more that it's garbage, and they are just making up overly elaborate explanations for why they don't like it, instead of just saying "it sucks".

Though, their criticism of Star Wars constantly rehashing all of the old shit was spot on.

I think it was good and enjoyable, just no big Republic/Empire Jedi/Sith stuff. It was better than TLJ obviously, not sure why did it fail. Maybe TLJ's bad reputation caused it?

I'm not going to watch the video, so just tell me - is it the usual angry Star Wars fan complaining about new things?

I liked TCW and even Rebels but... Why? Is this necessary?

They must be desperate, cancelling it was one of their biggest and most hated mistakes.

It's one of my favorite series ever, so I love to see it back, but I won't hold my breath, it still has Disney behind, with every negative connotation that implies.

I find it funny though, how now "it's saved".

When they were the ones to kill it in the first place.

I think they noticed the complete lack of hype for the new cartoon they're working on. Definitely seems like they're scrambling to get back the audience they lost when they cancelled TCW and most of what was left lost when they cancelled Rebels.

Rebels should never had happened in the first place. The few interesting storylines it had should have been part of the Clone Wars.

A rebellion storyline could have worked after TCW had a proper ending, and it should have featured Ahsoka and various politicians in the first place, not a band of random stereotypes, including your jedi survivor and mary sue kids. Young Leia would have been the perfect protagonist.
