The director of this short film (let's face it - that's what it is) has got a big future.

Honestly - this is better than a lot of the action sequences in the prequel trilogy.

Great stuff.

I just find it sad that they are apparently so inept that they continually have to re-tread and re-reference old story elements, music aspects, environments, characters and scenarios from the StarWars franchise.

It’s not “smart” logic, it’s dumb logic, because it becomes this inbred, tedious, cyclical kinda thing that smacks of lost potential.

They do exactly the same thing with the TV series.
And it really diminishes the importance of the characters (both old & new), their actions, their stories and the consequences, because it just becomes more of the same kind of (or far too familiar) a thing.

Does this look 'cool'? Is it slick? Is it eye candy? Did many brave animators “die” making this thing? Sure!
But what does it Add to the StarWars universe?

I loved StarWars, Indiana Jones, TinTin and all those things... just not in these degenerate forms.

Degenerate from the perspective of authenticity, inventiveness or expanding on the StarWars universe in a meaningful and refreshing way.

It’s not hard to make visual improvements on something in 30+ years, or even 5 years for that matter.
But it’s also NOT HARD to actually attempt to grow and expand elements of this universe beyond what we’ve already come to know.

But I guess that'd be too “risky” and hey… this licensing stuff is all about the money money money.

Hahahaha, wow. Nicely said Brendan. I agree, it would be cool to push it, but hey, like you said, it is about money.
