So.... save it from what, exactly?
You refer to the treatment of Mark Hamill being something abominable, but I'm not sure what exactly you mean. Only thing I can think of is when he said that he disagreed with the direction Luke's story was taken - which we know is actually a plot point George Lucas came up with, not Johnson or Kennedy - and he later went back on that anyways
Uh no, Mark Hamill isn't happy with TLJ, even now.
I'll take this honest, passionate response over a Twitter post he was likely asked to make due to PR.
I REALLY don't see how Disney's ruined Star Wars. Okay, de-canon-izing almost 40 YEARS of content was quite questionable, but when I watch the new Star Wars movies in the cinema, I don't see a corporate monster milking every penny out of a franchise. I see people who genuinely care about a movie series they grew up with and try to maturely bring proper closure to the characters we grew up with. Rian Johnson gets far too much hate just because he did something no one expected.
He wrote an awful mess of a film that not only devalued the characters that J.J Abrams introduced, (Not just referring to the Supreme Leader.) but also disrespected some of the major contributors to the franchise as a whole, Ben Burtt is not happy, John Williams is not happy, Daisy Ridley is not happy and Mark Hamill is not happy.
There's just a few examples from the level-headed YT members whom will not tolerate KK & RJ's treatment of the Saga.
& If you don't find those convincing, watch Mauler's three part deconstruction of why TLJ is so vehemently hated if you're truly passionate about SW.
(I did the same for IHE's inane video on why TLJ is a good film, which it most certainly isn't apart from-from a technical standpoint.)
I have never hated any management of a franchise more than this personally, not Ridley Scott with Prometheus, not GL with TPM.
