I just really hate how they handled Phasma. Here I was, thinking she was gonna be this cool dominatrix badass villain, then they killed her off in the most stupid way possible in TFA, resurrected her, then made her die like a chump again in TLJ. For all the talk on "strong independent wahmen characters" they sure love to fuck her up.
Funny thing is she wasn't even supposed to be in TFA. The film was almost 90% done when Kathleen Kennedy showed up one day to the art room and saw a sketch of a silver nu-trooper, she then went gaga over it and ordered them to put it in the movie but make it female despite not having enough time to even make that possible, hence her limited appearance. And she was conveniently revealed during the peak of the feminist gaming drama over the non-issue that was skimpy female armors in games, which just added more wood to the fire that was pop culture drama and conveniently creating a lot of free press for Phasma which involved endless clickbait articles about how she's the "wake up call" fandoms need to "grow up". Also that trash compactor gag irritates me to no end, not just because its another memberberry moment but the fact that wasting time going around a highly secure base to look for a trash compactor just to toss a random trooper into it is stupid in and of itself when Han would normally just shoot the fucker without a second thought. She was honestly more wasted and underwhelming than both Fetts.

Not surprising, going from a ruthless bastard to an utter buffoon without warning would kill any character's credibility.

Any word if he's in IX, or is he just getting discarded entirely?
I mentioned before that he is (like around page 520 or 540 maybe) but he's been demoted and will now be playing second fiddle to "Allegiant General" Whyte Pryde.

I can understand their thought process. They rather sacrifice the opportunity to set up a credible, competent antagonist who can actually pose a serious challenge to the protagonists, in favor of making sure it's very obvious who is the real Mary Sue that the audience should be cheering on.
Finn, since he takes out Phasma both times? Wonder if that's acceptable given the progressive stack, does a cishet (assuming FinnxPoe isn't canon) black guy have an advantage over a white woman (maybe lesbian/bisexual since I think someone posted Phasma is canon homo).
I don't know if its been mentioned in the 600 pages, but the thing that got my blood churning was the "period planet of thot"

so much fluid

oh and shaming chewie for eating fried chicken wtf.

and every other second of the cancer.
Are you talking about the novel with Phasma and Vi Moradi written by that woman who thinks it's very important that periods be represented in books (especially Star Wars books)?

Poor guy. I liked his performance in TFA even though his character was a blatant Tarkin knockoff. Him and Kylo were the only two interesting characters in the movie.

JFC when the character design you like the most is revealed to be some last-minute woke jerkoff character…

Please go to Hell Kathleen. Fuck you.

Who can say really. Standards are so wacky I can't keep track. But as far as being a lesbian goes, I don't think she's actually been involved with anyone. Although its mentioned that the tribe she came from were a bunch of violent "free love" warrior hippies who engaged in casual sex or something regardless of gender. And I was told that the new comic she got recently had a female rookie nu-trooper fall in love with her only for Phasma to constantly scold her then eventually betray her, and all the while in the comic Phasma revealed that she was sort of a coward who sacrifices others, even her own, just to survive. She's also a huge "racist/xenophobe" due to hating anything having to do with aliens and scolding a former comrade for snorting spice and drinking wookiee alcohol because they were alien goods.

That seems to be the most likely culprit.
And the author is writing a LeiaxHoldo comic as we speak...

Seriously Disney, stop pushing this character already. She's fucking everywhere now. Also for those of you barely interested, the comic's story revolves around Holdo and Leia going on a getaway for some private time on Coruscant where Leia teaches Holdo how to ride a speeder, and it ends with them getting trapped in the criminal levels of Coruscant where they fight off gangsters despite being in their 60s.

Hux's actor really got the short end of the stick in all this, and his and Finn's characters are probably the most shamed and humiliated ones under Disney (not counting the abuse suffered by pre-Disney characters). Neither characters even get a role or meet&greet at Galaxy's Edge surprisingly despite supposedly being sequel focused.

It's impressive that they're spite forcing a character who appeared and died in a movie they're going to mostly wipe. I know it's the mentally retarded monkeys at Marvel and the Story Group doing it, but seriously, absolutely no one likes Holdo as she stands.

And the thing about Hux, Finn, and many other characters were they all had potential in even a mediocre writer's hands (no seriously, there's a reason I was doing the scripts besides as a way to see what could have been; I was highlighting this). But at no point are they given something to build on. In the case of Poe, he never had anything since they fucking rewrote him to ensure Oscar Isaac had nothing to do for the movie for very vague reasons.

Shit, it's embarrassing that Disney won't even use 2/3's of their "trio" for their fucking park and are pushing wokeshit that don't sell.

Remind me tomorrow to write a pt. 5 to TLJ, I think I have my ending in mind too...

I looked her up on Amazon, and from what I saw, she's a reasonably competent writer of trash-tier romance novels. Not as bad as I was hoping- no perpetual present tense or Chuck Wendig word salad, even though she meanders as many female authors are wont to do.

Though it is extremely telling that Disney is hiring romance novelists to do their pulp sci-fi tie-ins instead of... you know, science fiction writers. She must work for cat food and Ben & Jerry's.

Why are they even pushing for Holdo at this point? Putting aside how generally disliked she is, the bitch died and became literal space dust, she literally has no bearing on the plot going forward (unless they pull a resurrection out of their ass just to spite the fanbase).

At least George had the sense to downplay Jar Jar Binks after TPM, when are these guys gonna take the hint?

This would explain why the very first thing a plot summary of these books/comics tells us is what kind of perversions the main characters are into. Why the hell do I NEED to know about a character's specific sexual practices if that information really doesn't factor into the story? There wasn't even any romance in the first Star Wars movie (A New Hope) other than some ogling of Leia done by Luke (a horny teenager who didn't know he was looking at his sister,) In the second and third movies, Han and Leia hooked up after a lot of romantic sparring, but overall, the romance was sprinkled on pretty lightly. The main focus was the war the characters were waging and the struggle that revolved around Luke coming into his own power and saving his father. If you had told me after ROTJ had ended, that Leia would dump Han and go diving into the purple muff of an incompetent military leader who couldn't command a popsicle stand without running it to the ground and setting it on fire, I would have scoffed. But here we are. If you had told me that Disney was going to turn the franchise into a badly written Harlequin romance novel - one written by third-string, C-tier authors whose works don't even get to have Fabio featured on their covers - I'd have laughed. But here we are.

If you had told me that Disney would take the greatest "money in the bank" cash cow sci-fi franchise and give it to radical man-hating feminists to run so they could implement a social agenda -with predictable results - I would start thinking that aliens were conducting mindwarp experiments on Disney personnel. And the sad thing is, that most women who see the new Disney Star Wars movies, probably hate them as much as I do. What woman (other than a BPD sadist) wants to see a movie filled with bumbling men who get constantly humiliated and bullied? What woman wouldn't have enjoyed the male characters more if they had shown competence, menace or initiative? Even Kylo Ren, the most conventionally "attractive" male character looks like he belongs more in a Grade Z Anime love triangle, than as a morally ambiguous villain in a Star Wars movie.

Clownfish talking about Disney nickel and diming people harder due to the massive debt it's in
Here is the article most relevant to this thread, they're increasing prices on their crappy merchandise. One thing that caught my eye is this item for $20.
1565776662023.png
I watched an 'Ashens' video for the first time in a long time today due to the lootbox bankruptcy article and he had bought this item for 1.90 pounds ($2.30US). It's not exactly the same, but i think it shows how much of a price gouge it is.

Strong wahmens aside, the sequel trilogy desperately needed a cool badass villain. Hux is a paper-pusher (turned comic relief), even at his (could-have-been) best, if you see him, it's good and you should shoot him. Kylo is a redeemable emo kid, if you see him, it's kind of good and you should talk to him. The trilogy needed a villain to run away from.

and give it to radical man-hating feminists
*ahem excuse me* liberal man-hating feminists.

Dismantle me if you can, but screw it, I think Domhall could have played a great Thrawn had they let him.

I mentioned before that he is (like around page 520 or 540 maybe) but he's been demoted and will now be playing second fiddle to "Allegiant General" Whyte Pryde.

Wait. Are you serious about that name? I can't tell any more.

Also, let's take a moment to appreciate some talent.

I have a feeling that they did nothing with the character because they were scared of the reaction. She's supposed to be a strong woman but... she's also on the villains side.

Like I said in a previous post a long time ago, I feel bad for the actor. I bet he thought that he would get to be the new Tarkin but instead his character went from a Hitler Rants parody to some kind of comic relief.

I've seen a panel either here or on /tv/ the other day and there was Holdo on the bridge of a ship, bare feet and with her new hair color dripping on the floor. I just don't understand why they're doing this.

Literally General Pride. Fuck me.
Snoke's ship was called the Supremacy.
The First Order troopers do the roman salute.
Hux yells his speeches like in a Hitler Rants parody.
It's a bit on the nose but you can't expect subtlety from a JJ Abrams production.
