It was announced this week that there are 6 new Star Wars movies coming, starting in 2015 and being released ever summer after that. My immediate excitement was quickly quelled by the fearful thought of why? Though I was hopeful that a team of Joss Whedon, Steven Spielberg, and JJ Abrams would turn a quality product…it’s Disney. And Disney live action movies suck. Outside of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie…there hasn’t been a good live action Disney movie since Don Knotts was in his prime. And instead of letting these films breathe and build, they’re pushing them out faster than cellphone updates. From a studio who has brought us such wonderful cinematic piles of dump like John Carter and Prince Of Persia, don’t you think they would have learned their lesson and not try to mangle creativity with profits. And no, Avengers was Paramount and was later distributed by Disney. Many believe this has to do with the sagging profits from the Disneyland and California Adventure expansions that didn’t deliver the crowds they predicted. So instead of learning from their mistakes from shoving something down the public’s throat that didn’t necessarily want…they’re changing their ways by shoving more shit down the public’s throat assuming maybe more is better.
Sometimes less is more. And quality can be in the understated. You don’t need to hit people over the head with a hammer if you have something to say.
