Four movies in, Disney’s Star Wars is in a very different place than where George Lucas left it. Some like the new direction, many others don’t. With Episode IX wrapping up the Skywalker saga, is it time for George Lucas to return and save the franchise?
“The Clone Wars” is coming back! It’s been 10 years since its debut, and it’s time the Council talked about it. The show had some amazing high points, but by the end of its run, were the stories worth telling – and do we need any more?
“The Last Jedi” is still inspiring heated debate and likely will for years to come. We got to thinking: has any other movie in the franchise caused this much uproar? We think the answer may be ‘yes’: “The Phantom Menace”! Both movies did not deliver the story fans expected and set the franchise on a different course.

Jon of course sides with Mr. Lucas, and has plenty to say on the subject!
