    Anyone who refers to Jedi as wizards really doesn’t understand SW. No wonder the new trilogy was trash.

      It’s like one of those summaries told by children yet they’re adults. Unreal. You’re ruining the franchise.

    Hey, man, fiction is an old drug from the Middle Ages. It's an insanity. It only leads to more and harder fiction. Oh, and on "The Bible," why don't you just do your chores for once? You aren't dying just yet, unless brain plasticity out of whack is a form of death. Is it?

    JJ and Disney have ruined Star Wars. Episodes 7 & 8 were crap. Terrible cinematography, dialogue, and a fixation with generated computer graphics, and terrible close ups. I remember ep. 8 being a majority of close up shots. They really messed up the boldness and genuine quality of the original trilogy. Also, the script is simply derivative and lacking the imagination necessary to deliver a performance worthy of the Star Wars Franchise.

    J.J. shows such hate and disrespect for the Prequels. It's pretty disappointing. But then again, he did make 2 of the worst Star Wars movies, and is responsible for this mess of a trilogy that has allowed actual Star Wars fans to realize how great the Prequels really are.
    Thanks J.J.! Not for making great films, but for showing everyone how much better the Prequels are compared to your movies.

    American audiences clap and cheer at the opening of a packet of crisps, the reaction when Stephen says "Star was ....etc." Says it all. It's been ruined and really everyone is just waiting to see what pointless things are in it just to sell more toys.

    I really like your monologue, and some of your segments, but, some are rediculous, and not in a good or funny way. (And everything doesn't need to be a segment, or subsegment) Just one question would be good, if you had your people just ask a question. Not this scripted back and forth, IT'S NOT FUNNY. Usually there some funny stars you're asking questions of, and you could even script SOME funny questions, but scripted replies, and force choking and... not funny. Could've been a great segment.

    I mean yeah that's the simple Star wars Story , and that recap is what holliwood feels like in these years , just explanation and plain simple story, I mean doing dumb thing for dumb people is probabily the best way to make money , except some dumb people likestar wars fan want to feel something watching the film and not having all explained , u know we like to dream , and even at 28 yo I still like to dream ... A plz someone tell that nazifeminist producer that in Star wars/nerdy ambient there are no sex difference. But that robot thing of Landon was akward as fuck , you cannot fall in love with dildos right? I mean writing to Americans that fucks bridges /car/fences and old metal machineri , but still we need to draw a line . Sorry bad English here , I'm Italian.

    Remember when Avengers Endgame was fresh in the theaters, and people were screaming at all the character reveals, like when spider-man came back, when Cap took the hammer? Remember that shit that went down in the theater. I guarentee none of that will happen for Star Wars. No body really gives a shit about the adventures or well-being of Rey, Fin, Poe, the Asian rebel girl. Secretly, I think we all want to see this movie fail.

    One thing is for sure, Disney is in the process of killing off Star Wars entirely, and Star Trek was pretty much wiped out by a combination of Les Moonves of CBS and JJ Abrams here. Also, don't look to the MCU for good movies in the next few years. Disney is going woke, and very broke. They aren't selling toys (most of their profit right there), Disneyland is a ghost town because of SW land, and they keep throwing woke nonsense like the upcoming Thor Love and Thunder where Thor is replaced by a skinny 40 year old tiny woman. No exaggeration. The same stunt was tried before by Marvel Comics, and it flopped hard. Jar Jar Abrams here is a HORRIBLE director/writer. He cannot produce anything original, he just makes copies of older material and does it badly. I have seen far too many flicks of his, and worse, this episode 9 is being reshot as we speak because of the massive woke factor. Go check out Midnight's Edge and Nerdrotic if you want to learn about more of SW and ST madness here on youtube.

    I dare to say what nobody wants to say here: The new Star Wars saga is pure garbage and this scripted
    "interview" with the actors in the best television night show is pure damage control.
    Star Wars is already dead but Disney doesn't know it yet.
    R.I.P. Star Wars.

      @Aaron Robinson it's not true. The person who made this comment is probably one of the original trilogy loyalists who shoot down everything because they're scared the new movies will be better than the old ones.

    • Aaron Robinson

      I hope it's not true. I've still imagined a way this series could still be good, though the options are getting limited. The Mandelorian is already a bit of a disappointment to me, and if this doesn't show well then that might be it. I've heard good stuff for the Jedi: Fallen Order game, but I just can't shell out $60 for that right now.
