Former Disney CEO Wasn’t A Fan Of Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker


Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker has confirmed to be fairly divisive amongst Star Wars followers, and Disney’s former CEO can now be counted among the many less-than-impressed. In his social media reaction to the film, Michael Eisner referred to as Episode IX “an acceptable film” that “lacks emotion.”

Eisner went on to stack Rise Of Skywalker towards Disney+’s The Mandalorian, which lately wrapped up its first season on the brand new streaming service, saying that the collection’ showrunner Jon Favreau has cemented himself because the modern-day George Lucas.

Eisner is actually not alone in his Rise Of Skywalker emotions. Our reviewer, Michael Rougeau, referred to as Episode IX a “galactic disappointment” layered with “cloying, saccharine sentimentality.” In GameSpot’s official review, he wrote “In the end, it all feels simply empty. It should never be so clear to audiences that something in the filmmaking process has gone so terribly wrong–that the people who made the first film in a trilogy apparently didn’t bother to sketch out a plan for the second and third, and that the movies’ directors had visions for the series’ future that were so fundamentally at odds.”

The excellent news is, no matter your Rise Of Skywalker emotions, the Star Wars bubble is way from busting. The Mandalorian has been renewed for a second season with Jon Favreau returning as showrunner, slated for launch within the fall of 2020–there’s even the potential for some Skywalker Saga characters to make the leap from massive to small screens, so you will positively need to preserve your eyes peeled. And if Baby Yoda and firm aren’t sufficient to get you excited for the way forward for Star Wars, Disney+ additionally has its Obi-Wan and Cassian Andor streaming TV reveals as effectively.
