After the events of The Last Jedi, the Star Wars fandom has been split. Fans either love it, or hate it, I am sure a few feel indifferent about it, but they are definitely in the minority. Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, along with his family recently spoke with ABC News, and among other things they discussed was how Hamill felt about returning to the franchise:
“I don’t care anymore, on that level, because Han Solo is gone, Luke is gone, and you just can’t get the band back together the way you wanted it to be, and it shouldn’t be that way. So it is what it is.”
While part of his statement is in reference to Carrie Fisher’s passing, I also feel it implies he isn’t happy with how Han, Luke, and Leia were treated by Disney. Since the film’s release, Hamill has expressed his opposition to the way Luke was treated, he has clarified those statements in a way I can only call, being professional. Do I think Disney had a word with Hamill? Personally, I do. However, that is just my opinion.
Yes Mark, unfortunately, the band will never get back together. Which is one of my big issues with the sequel trilogy. I think Disney tried to kill the past far too quickly. Had they honored the original trio, and used these movies to focus on them, then I think the fans that hate The Last Jedi would have been more accepting to the changes Disney made to the Force and other aspects of the franchise. Yes, Disney, Star Wars is now yours, but you should have let it be ours just a little while longer.
