          Toys, clothing, branded crap (keychains, stickers, notebooks etc) - Star Wars makes over $2bn a year on merch alone.

          >You brainlets are missing the point, Disney has already made back the money they spent on Star Wars from merch sales since the purchase alone.
          I've had to many arguments about this but they can't move the merchandise. No one cares about their shitty new characters and the stories don't engage with new audiences. They spent $2 billion modifying their park for no one to come, and they're chasing an uphill battle for their initial investment with movies that had a constantly dropping audience. Now they're fucked. They've slaughtered the golden goose and even if they've broken even (they haven't) the future for Star Wars looks uninspired at best. Dead franchise that is going to be kept on life support.

          You could just look it up instead of being fooled by stocked shelves, dollar bins and hearsay.
          Better yet you could try not being retarded.

              The Hasbro sales trends indicate a peak in 2015 based off Force Awakens then a slow decline and they're actually selling less Star Wars toys now than they were between Revenge of the Sith and Force Awakens. Even the peaks generated by film releases weren't as high as the peaks experienced during that period.

            I'd take the prequel days over anything else thats popped out the last 15 years. They gave us cool designs for aliens, troops, ships, characters, Genndy Wars, new games, comics and books. What was the worst fucking thing you had to worry about then? That Luke would become Space Jesus in a new EU book? That TFU wouldn't get a sequel? It wasn't the Disney hell we have now.

              Preach brother. I still find it hilarious that people shit on the EU for all those years but it's still miles better than anything Disney has given us. Even fucking Kevin J Anderson's books shit all over Disney's efforts and that's saying something.

        greed, its clear disney/lf doesn't want to share the rights with other companies they don't own. ATM, Disney would rather lose out on failing multimedia projects and theme parks than focus on videos games, yet games like Swtor are making them monkey, just barely.

        battlefront 2 was a good game (after like 2 years of updates)

        They had to update the game because of TLJ backlash, after TROS flopped they EoS'ed the game because it didn't attract nor retained the player base.

      The show doubles down on the nu-lore, which people are staring to notice in the obi-wan show. If Disney were honestly brining star wars back, The Truce of Bakura should've been made.
      >Jedi fallen order
      Very overrated stuff, with tons of issues in which people will get screwed because the story will lead to nothing. The game is tailored to tcw/rebels fans, because force powers are really "down to earth".
      >some of the books and comics
      All of them reinforces the retcons and bashes legacy characters. Some like Brotherhood is a inferior version of Labyrinth of Evil. In fact one of them outright states jyn erso was more important than Luke or a lesbian beating vader.

    The EA Battlefront games, Squadrons, and Fallen Order are all good games. But yes, only 4 games in a decade, one decent movie, and one decent show are pretty fucking sad and unacceptable. And don't even get me started on how there have been zero decent books or comics. Disney has butchered Star Wars, there's genuinely nothing left to like or care about.

      Severe mismanagement from the top really. Who the fuck thought not having a solid plot for the entire trilogy before filming made any sense, along with all the thrown out scripts that were much better sounding than we got, on top of them deciding to use a different director for each entry. Just makes absolutely no sense at all, truly impressive incompetence.

      George had no reason to sell. If he had announced EP7-9 in 2011-2013 with new directors, his own script, the old cast with Luke getting his respectable sendoff those movies would've made billions easily. 1313 and the Darth Maul game would've done amazing. I imagine an actual KOTOR 3 would have been made by now. I still wonder if Disney more or less strongarmed him into selling, threatening to buy stocks or dirt on him that only a Hollywood circle would know about. He had his money, his IP and infinite possibilities for growth, especially when LucasArts was known for being a pioneer anyways.

    Disney has bigger problems, their in house studio animated movies are under performing. This is great news. Hope Disney Studio dies.

    The animated studio nearly died if Little Mermaid failed, sadly that shitty movie and bastardization of a famous story found success. Hoping Disney dies. And that Kingdom Hearts fails and that their theme parks fail against Universal.
