The Last Jedi nearly had a different ending

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Movie Review

Proving the Force is not strong with Chinese audiences, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been unceremoniously yanked from all cinemas in the Middle Kingdom following a truly dismal box office run.

The film opened with $28.7 million in the first weekend but dropped to $2.4 million in the second weekend, leading cinemas to pull it from their lineups. It would be bad enough losing the Falcon, but if we lost Chewie too it would be enough to lose all hope, wouldn't it? We didn't learn ourselves until 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story delved into the small, scruffy team that nobly gave their lives in honor of a greater cause.

Other fans of Star Wars were not impressed with the updated version and took to Twitter to share their utter disdain, suggesting that the user "hated women".

The arguments abounded, dividing the internet-until finally, The Last Jedi picked up where The Force Awakens left off, telling us the truth once and for all.

Try as they might, the Star Wars franchise can't seem to work their Jedi Mind Tricks on China.

Based on the official synopsis, Solo: A Star Wars Story will basically touch on everything we have heard about Han Solo, but have never seen. Why does everyone keep calling Kylo Ren "Ben"?

Whereas other films err on the side of simplicity to reach an global audience, Star Wars is an intertextual and reference-heavy franchise built on character history and the thematic aging of both character and audience.

During a previous exchange on Jedha, Leia recalled to Luke some of the last words her father said to her, entrusting her with the mission of delivering the Death Star plans to Obi-Wan Kenobi. By mid-January 2016 - a month after its release - JJ Abrams' episode totalled US$1.863 billion and was already the third highest-grossing movie of all time, behind Avatar and Titanic. Many fans and writers wondered if it was even real. "It makes sense that all of this might not feel very good", he wrote of Skywalker's Last Jedi vibes. It's made from a CAM source (the most recent HDTC one with the Asian hard subs, which is pretty watchable).

That said, it sounds like the film is mostly complete which is why Disney is sticking to its original release date for the movie.

It's an argument for investing in brand new properties with the potential to grow into worldwide phenomena, no prior histories attached.
