Star Wars Is now Disney Fanfic

YoutTuber David Stewart explains why there is no longer any reason to pay the least bit of attention to the Disney fan fiction masquerading as Star Wars
Disney Star Wars - it's not canon guys. It's unofficial. It's fan fiction. View it as such, treat it as such, talk about it as such; including not treating it as anything that needs to be paid attention to or be thought of as official. And anyone that says it is official, they're incorrect, right? Just as they'd be incorrect about Thor being a woman or anything else like that. 
Once you separate creator and creation, it's completely unofficial. It's a fan work. It's something like ... you go see a Dio hologram. You're not seeing Dio, that's obvious, but all of these things are like the Dio hologram. They're just continuations of something which has already passed on from this earth.

Our culture will begin the long road to recovery when most people accept that their beloved childhood IPs are dead. Luckily, there is a new generation of creators hard at work on new stories. If Western civilization can trudge on for another decade or two, perhaps some of the new storytellers' works will break out to entertain and inspire large audiences.

One thing's for certain: We can't succeed without readers. Set aside your fear, skepticism, or simple procrastination, and support independent authors today.

  1. On a related note, Vox Day finally talked about how people can support the Alt-Hero film project. Living original work by the original creator, or the unlife of corporate fanfic-I know which I choose. (URL: http://voxday.blogspot.com/2019/07/backing-rebels-run.html)

  2. There are more than a few movies in recent years that had they been advertised them as a NEW THING, I'd have eaten up with a spoon (until the degeneracy showed up...)

    None of the remakes, reboots, sequels, prequels, and now Disney strip mining their own cartoons as live action movies annoy me as much as the public humiliation ritual of shoving identity politics in our faces.

    If they'd made a movie about SCOWLING BLACK GRRL opposite a BLOND HUNK and told a story, I'd have eaten it up along with a giant tub of popcorn. That's not what they did, though.

    Instead we got one long public humiliation ritual. SBG and BH were Valkyrie and Thor. And Valkyrie was black, black, black. Did you notice she was black? Whether you did nor not did, you're rasciss for noticing/not noticing.

    1. Hollywood is to be considered one long, drawn-out humiliation ritual for the duration.

  3. I would have loved to see George Lucas` original vision for Episodes 7, 8, and 9. Disney just spit in his (and our) face and threw his scripts into the trash heap. What a wasted opportunity!

    1. Are you sure?

      You wanted to go into the microscopic world of the Midichlorians (or, as they were originally known, the Whills)?

  4. I wish we could have seen Timothy Zahn's vision for Episodes 7, 8, and 9. Alas...

    1. Yes, I boldly assert that if Lucas had started releasing canonical SW films based on the Thrawn Trilogy ca. '93, their strong performance and public acclaim would have kept his morale up and kept him from selling the franchise.

    2. To have seen the Noghri and Ysalamiri (a much more interesting spin on The Force than the Midi-chlorians) and the Nomad City brought to the big screen would have been amazing.

      Mara Jade. Talen Karrde.

      THRAWN!!!

    3. Perhaps, given that Carrie Fisher is no longer with us and Harrison Ford would rather step on a landmine than reprise his role, some intrepid explorer could make a shadows of the empire animated adaptation

    4. Wouldn’t be the same as the missed opportunity that the hypothetical 1990s live action rendition would have been, but it’d be something

  5. The idea of ignoring "official canon" is not without precedence. There are people (I'm one of them) who see a 4th Indiana Jones movie as little more than an urban legend. Since these are fictional characters, no one really has a monopoly on what happens to them. The only monopoly Disney owns is the one to make money off of them. So yeah, don't let the maternal fornicators ruin your childhood memories.

    1. In our home that...'film' is The Movie That Must Not Be Named.

      I actually paid money to see that abomination in the theater on opening night. And the entire movie was dead silent. Not a laugh. Not a cheer. Not the sudden inhale of shock or surprise. Silent. And when the credits rolled, everyone got up and quietly walked out. There was no talking, no staying to enjoy the theme played over the credits.

      People just shuffled out, despondent and deflated. Something that should never happen in an Indian Jones movie.

      But all the right critics tell me it was great!

    2. One theory is that if there were such a film, the master print was hidden away in Area 51 right next to the aliens.

  6. I actually went to a Foreigner concert where none of the members were originally from Foreigner. Of course, they were actually better, so nobody cared.
