You realize Disney didn't originate that story.
Yes. Like pretty much all their other stories.

I don't recall ever reading a Pocahontas story prior to seeing the Disney movie, much like I'd never read The Little Mermaid before seeing that movie. Dances With Wolves was a fantastic movie. Pocahontas was okay. Avatar was a steaming pile of crap (the ride at Animal Kingdom was fantastic, however).


It's just funny that you think Dances With Wolves was fantastic and Avatar sucked, yet they had very similar stories. You give one a pass and not the other.
I lost a lot of respect for James Cameron after Titanic (the social commentary was eye-rolling), and especially a documentary he attempted to make where he had supposedly unearthed an ornate box containing the bones of Christ (which would completely invalidate Christianity if true. Curiously, I don't recall the movie ever being released.

As for Avatar, it was a gorgeous looking movie with a typical realism in terms of hardware that he typically puts in his movies, like Aliens or The Abyss. The humans are BAD theme really irritated me. And I am reminded what I told a buddy that I saw Avatar with when we left the theater: I had felt like an observer from afar while watching that movie, whereas with something like The Empire Strikes Back, I felt as though I had actually been to a galaxy far, far away and was a part of the action.

I'm just glad we have like 6 more Avatar movies headed our way.

The best thing about Avatar is the Gosling SNL skit though. That thing is genius.

Fanboy clickbait saying that, essentially, Disney is going to pull a Dallas "it was all a dream" and cast aside the sequel trilogy. Substitute "alternate reality" for "dream," but... yeah.

Quote:

Getting back to the rumor, Doomock says that plans are in place to save the Star Wars franchise which involves the Abrams and Rian Johnson trilogy getting nullified.
It's claimed the Disney Star Wars Trilogy will be erased using a concept that was recently made canon in the Star Wars Rebels animated series.
"In the Season 4 episode 13 installment titled 'A World Between Worlds,' the concept of the Veil of The Force was introduced, a mystical dimension of The Force that connects all time and space," explains Doomcock. "I have received confirmation from two additional sources claiming that this is spot on -- that indeed LucasFilm realizes they have a massive problem on their hands, that the Star Wars franchise is all but dead, and despite Kathleen Kennedy's hatred of this idea, Lucasfilm is preparing to render the Sequel Trilogy null and void."
It's said that the events from The Force Awakens, Last Jedi, and Skywalker "will be removed from canon, isolated in their own alternate timeline and regarded as an Elseworlds-like installment under the label of Star Wars Legends."
So what Doomcock is explaining is that a Star Wars Multiverse will be created which will isolate the Disney Star Wars Trilogy as being a part of a separate universe that is not a part of the George Lucas original Star Wars films.

Funny thing is, if they're looking to create an alternate timeline for the franchise, the obvious guy to do that is JJ.

That's a worse idea than anything in the sequel trilogy.

Agree. There's a wealth of material available in the universe. Get away from the Skywalker saga and move on to new stories in new eras. The movies weren't great, but they happened. Learn from your mistakes and apply those lessons toward the new ones

And what's more, they already gave into all of the anti-TLJ Internet fan theory stuff in TROS, and it didn't satisfy that crowd, so...

I don't know about any of that but if my name was Doomcock I'd have found a better calling than Star Wars fan gossip.

Consider Cosmic Book News in the same category as We Got This Covered. In other words: known frauds who post nonsense trash from "sources" found only inside their own assh*les.

Don't believe a word of this.

Same goes for Doomcock. He's the same POS who was proven wrong on all kinds of TROS bulls*t.

Rule of thumb: legitimate rumors NEVER come from YouTube.

I'm an avid hater of TLJ, but also TROS was a schizophrenic mess so... just move on. Stop addressing the turd Rian Johnson dropped, stop addressing the ADHD light show follow-up. Stop trying to make social justice points and stop trying to write a movie for fanboys.

Just make a good movie with a star wars ethic please.

Just digging deep for Star Wars topics on an Avatar thread in the middle of a pandemic.

It's also just such a poorly conceived concept, that would never make its way into a real movie. The only thing he might have right is a power struggle between Favreau and Kennedy. She's gotta go

Done with the first 4 episodes of s7 clone wars and the bad batch has got to be some of the most fun the writers had with these characters....was a great time!

Then watched e5 with the first time Ashoka has been back....that was underwhelming.

Still looking forward to the rest! Almost done!

And I'll add absolutely nothing has been spoiled for me regarding this series so I have no idea what's coming.

The Joker in me wants this multi-verse idea to be real just to watch the chaos from it.

Yeah, seems like a major oversight on Obi-Wan's part. He had to know where Anakin's mind was.

Obi Wan didn't give in and let his woman die for the cause... he just expected too much from little Ani.

Holy ***** Got 2 episodes left for the clone wars series and will be watching them with my boys tomorrow. They are ending this in a strong way!

Seeing Dryden Voss in episode 10 even if for a brief moment was a nice touch

Yeah I think if you one of the questions that bothers you is "is there really air on all these planets" the franchise isn't for you

I really wish it had been that way too, with all of the voices represented, and Paplatine really seeing them.

Given all of the fan service, I'm not sure why they didn't do this.

I'm finally watching clone wars on Disney plus. I started with the movie where they meet ahoska and then moved I to the episodes dealing with the malevolence. Am I just missing them or are the earlier episodes from 2003 or so not on there?

Didn't I read that th clone wars eps aren't in the right order?
