Kathleen is one of the most successful producers out there considering she has all of Spielberg's hits under her belt. Lucas chose her because she was the right combination of business and creative.  

Even though I don’t/didn’t have a ton of faith in Trevorrow, I can’t help but think the major factor behind this is Carrie Fisher’s death. The movie he had been making (either in concept or actuality)

So what's the issue I wonder? Is it--   A. Kathleen Kennedy is impossible to work for?   or   B. These directors too fanboy to do quality work?   or   C. Some combination of the two?     So of t

I'm glad they pushed it to December beyond the creative reasons, Star Wars just feels more like a Holiday release at this point.

May would be fine for a spinoff, but at this point I love the idea of seeing one of the main installments the week before Christmas. It's fun being able to see it during the time off or with family.

In reality you have a guy who made a Star Wars movie which made 2 billion bucks. A movie which is over 90% on RT and generally very well liked. If this guy is willing to come back for the next movie how can you not bring him back. Really is the only choice they can make.

This description fits Lucas after ANH.

I can't think of any JJ Abrams stuff I've disliked, but I also can't think of anything I've had any interest in watching more than twice. And the only one I watched twice was TFA.

Yep. After the second viewing, I know for sure I'll never watch it again.

I'm surprised at the hate for TFA. I thought it was solid. The hitting-the-same-beats-as-ANH thing was a bit distracting and the Nazi rally was over the top, so it's not like I can't criticize it, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it overall. The pluses far outweighed the minuses.

A few:

- Kylo Ren is a great character. His conflicted, emo, whininess echoes his grandfather, but it feels fresh and different. Also AD is a much better actor than HC.

- A SW movie without fart and poo jokes just feels right.

- Daisy Ridley sells this stuff better than anyone in the entire series probably.

- Loved the blending of the old and new characters, didn't feel forced once for me.

- Dialogue and use of humour was updated, but still in line with the OT

 

I've watched it probably five times and I get literal chills every time that lightsaber flies into Rey's hand (no joke). Maybe I'm a sucker for all the movie-making tricks that make that moment, but to me that is already one of the greatest SW moments of all-time.

 

I'm okay with JJ returning.

Small? 12 out of every 10 viewers hated it.

 

Also: I liked it. I own it. I would watch it again, I just haven't felt any burning desire. Similar to Star Trek. I have absolutely nothing against TFA, it just isn't as exciting.

 

Now if I had to wait three years between films, I probably would have watched it more. But the excitement is definitely diluted by seeing a new movie every year.
