Yep, that’s right folks. The showrunner for Star Wars: Andor, which is a prequel to a prequel where we know the bloke dies at the end, will be subverting our expectations… whoopey-f*cking-doo.
I’ve Got A Bad Feeling About This
In the Vanity Fair promotional piece, the article’s author Anthony Breznican sat down with the Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy to discuss the up-and-coming show. What follows is eye-rolling and piss boiling. Gilroy had this to say:
“There are certain events that happen in these five years that are important and need to be paid attention to. There are certain people, characters that are legacy characters, that the audience, the passionate audience, really feels that they have an understanding of and know.
In some cases, they’re right. And in some cases, what we’re saying is, ‘What you know, what you’ve been told, what’s on Wookieepedia, what you’ve been telling each other … is really all wrong.”
Will These People Ever Learn?
The last time Kennedy and her gimps at Lucasfilm decided to mess with the characters we grew up with, and have loved for 40 years, it pretty much destroyed the entire franchise overnight.
The Last Jedi earned $1.33Bn in box office takings. Yeah, kind of impressive but when you consider its predecessor, The Force Awakens made $2.066Bn, it is a failure regardless of how much glitter you sprinkle on a turd. Things have just gotten worse since then.
Kennedy Choking On Her Aspirations.
It seems everything Kennedy touches turns to Bantha shit and it’s all self-inflicted. Her entire “the force is female” schtick is dead in the water. Rangers of the New Republic is scrapped. Wonder Woman Director, Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron is shelved.
Ruin Johnson’s trilogy isn’t going anywhere. Galaxy’s Edge is apparently underwhelming and not performing well. Solo was a failure with Kennedy recently admitting recasting legacy characters was a mistake. Ya think?!
The ONLY shining light from Star Wars was The Mandalorian. A show that, under the guidance of genuine fans like Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau, proves that it’s really not that hard to give fans what they want.
I wasn’t particularly interested in Andor but I was willing to give it a shot. However, hearing they intend to mess with canon once again, this show isn’t even on my radar now.
With Obi-Wan Kenobi being released on Friday, I promised the kids I would watch the prequels with them this week to build up the excitement. However, it’s clearly obvious that Kennedy is just a spiteful individual who detests the fanbase and simply cannot help herself from destroying Star Wars. I will now go into Friday with a sense of dread. As Force Ghost Ben said:
“…don’t give in to hate. That leads to the dark side.”
Yeah, well you gave me no choice Kennedy. I’m full-on Sith now.
