I guess no more summer releases?

That 3 week holiday period is proving to be the best moving going season of the year.

From my understanding, Disney decided that Rian Johnson needed to re-write the script because he introduced new characters that would have taken screen time from Rey, Finn and Poe. Some of the people that they had in mind to cast have either been eliminated or had their roles reduced dramatically.

I think the move makes sense considering the fan reaction to the new characters, as well as Disney's own marketing of Rey and Finn through Disney Infinity 3.0 and all of the action figures and games.

Adding new characters when we don't even know Rey's true backstory would have been even more confusing.

I'm sure the December box office didn't hurt but going against Avatar 2 won't be an easy feat, either, which definitely means this was a story issue and not a financial box office issue.

I don't think there's any way Avatar 2 makes a Christmas release next year.

I would prefer Star Wars Episode VIII: Who The **** Is Rey's Father? Tell Us Now, God Damn It! Who Is It? Just Say It, Just Tell Us Who It Is, Jesus!

Could go really crazy and have Sabine and Ezra be her parents.
