Could fan anger towards The Last Jedi be part of why Solo: A Star Wars Story is performing poorly?

Wishful thinking from those who want to think they are punishing Disney.Nobody asked for a Han Solo recast. I certainly wasn't looking forward to it, and this was before The Last Jedi when I became aware of it. I tried to remain open minded and this paid off in the end for me personally. I

Are you on the dark side or the light side (Star Wars)? Why?

I like the theory of Grey Jedi's, neither light nor dark. Here's why:The light v dark debate really goes back to when this was all written in the 1970's. Establishment vs the people. Oppression vs Resistance. The Cold war. WWII. WWI. You

Is Star Wars a children's film?

It was intended as such, yes. George Lucas always meant it to be for children - that's why the Ewoks are a thing. He thought the kids would like them (and then buy the merchandise, of course).That said, I don't think it's very appropriate for younger audiences. Lots of violence, torture, and a few particularly grotesque scenes (Anakin's

Would the clone wars have been better if the war was between Jedi and Jedi clones?

Better? Perhaps if it was a different movie. I can't see how that would have worked for Star Wars.I never, for a moment thought the Jedi were clones. The movie was absolutely clear that the clones were soldiers based on the DNA of Jango Fett, a

Does the space worm in Empire Strikes Back need an atmosphere to live?

After the events of Empire Strikes Back, how does Luke Skywalker learn to be such a skilled Jedi?

Did The Last Jedi affect Solo: A Star Wars Story box office?

I think, to a very minimum extent, yes. Very vocal backlash about plot elements probably did contribute, but not nearly as much as everyone who hated the film thinks.You have to consider that Solo was the 3rd blockbuster film in the month it was released. It was released merely 3 weeks after Infinity War,

It does, that's what contributed in making Star Wars so popular. The stories could've happened out there, and we would never know.

What are the time skips between A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi?

ESB takes place approximately 3 years after ANH. At least month passes during ESB. ROTJ is six months after ESB, and four years after ANH.How is that possible? The same way that Donald Trump was elected in 2016, inaugurated in 2017, and yet only a few months passed between those events.

Could the Jedi council during the Clone Wars defeat the Avengers from the first Avengers movie in a battle?

First lets set some things straight: "Could defeat" is a pretty low burden to prove here.  Is it possible? Absolutely.  To make this question more interesting, though, I'll discuss whether or not the Jedi would be likely to beat the Avengers.So who are the Jedi Council during the Clone

Do all Sci-Fi universes base space travel off of a common set of known facts, or does each one make up its own? For example, would the Enterprise function successfully in the Star Wars universe?

I think it's about friends, and knowing who you can count on when it's all or nothing. And this theme is mirrored throughout the movie.
