Take Our “What Jedi Are You” Quiz
Why tell stories? We tell stories because they are enjoyable, we can learn lessons, help us grow, show us problems we have to face in life, show us aspects of human nature. They show US how to act or not to act in a given situation.
A hero is someone we can relate to, someone that faces obstacles and finds ways to either overcome them or cope and deal with them throughout their story. The more relate-able a hero is to human nature, the more compelling the story because people begin to see themselves in these heroes. This is imperative to storytelling because if you don’t care about the characters then you don’t care to see where their story goes.
When we decide to edit out the human element from within a story then the story becomes no longer compelling.
This is why many of us tend to point at The Last Jedi as having a bad story. The characters have lost their reliability.
Hence, in moments when the audience should feel the most concern for these heroes, be in anticipation of what happens next, we feel disconnected and almost indifferent and the movie fails to penetrate into the ethos of human nature (the basis for telling stories).
This is a campaign to provide Disney an opportunity to course correct with the Star Wars franchise. The fans are completely divided and the core goal of Star Wars has been abandoned. The goal is to not make one half of the fandom happy over the other, it is to make a film that the fandom in general as a whole enjoys.
The hero archetype’s of the original films is what made these so great, it made characters that everyone could relate to regardless of their background and beliefs. No longer having this core element along with poor storytelling, has made the franchise divisive and in disarray.
The producers behind this have pledged to cover the budget, but you can pledge an amount to have your voice heard. You DO NOT have to put financial or personal information in, just an email address and a pledge.

A New Hope
The big thing I’m thankful for looking back is I wrote the script before ‘Force Awakens’ was even really made.
I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character.
The main thing is to protect these characters, and make sure they continue to live in the way [George] created them.
