    Not LFL officially, but from those associated with LFL, from JJ to Ruin to Chuck Wendig and Andi Guitierrez etc. This article sets out the examples: https://www.google.com/amp/s/disneys...er-disney/amp/
    I want to share some thoughts on the whole black stormtrooper drama that happened with TFA. And why it is that people like John and others immediately said it was racist thing.

    Firstly, people in Hollywood are ingrained to think that way. Some from practically from birth. They look at everything with the mindset of this person is racist that person isn't.

    Secondly they assume that the fans know that the Jango Clones are all dead. And the sequel trilogy is some 60ish years after the battle of Geonosis. They assume that they know that kind of info. So when people start complaining about a black stormtrooper. Immediately their minds are thinking that these people are racist trolls.

    You really need to check out the Star Wars Fan Awards. I can't remember if which of these two won, but they're some of my favorite films.

    https://youtu.be/G7-n36MBs1A

    And this one is currently my favorite Star Wars fan film ever

    Saw them when they were first released. Liked both more than either EP7/EP8. Especially the one featuring Anna Akana

    As was the 3rd Hobbit, Rogue One and Solo. They don't make Lego games for everything.

    But they have made one for every Episodic Star Wars film up to 8.

    There wouldn't be much play value in milking space cows and whining about how much the Jedi sucked.

    And the others were a trilogy per game. Lego TFA was the first game to be dedicated to one episode (though the first mission takes place during ep6).

    Wait a second, how come we got a lego TFA? I thought EA owned the exclusive rights to make Star Wars games? Wierd.....

    Apparently.

    I find it interesting that there was some people complaining how some employees were treating fans on Twitter. And now he's fired. It shows that the higher ups are paying attention.

    I know what you mean. It can get kinda depressing, That's why, I like watching the Star Wars channel, Star Wars Explained, HelloGreedo, and The Wayward Jedi. Avoid the comment section and bam! Ignorance is truly bliss, and sometimes I just have to help myself to a heaping spoonful of it.

    I've lost my faith in the new Star Wars. I thank the maker I have my hobbies and projects to fall back on. They can't take those away from us.

    Forgive the off-topic post but I find it amusing that the LA Dodgers, who Rian is a fan of and has been tweeting a lot about recently, have fallen behind the Brewers in their playoff series. The Dodger players are blaming their fans for their performance.

    Well, actually... they can.



    They can't hear you over the sound of all those EA/Battlefront micro-transactions.

    Who's to say how long before stop and decease orders are given to fan film makers or even cosplayers/prop makers...? I'm sure Disney would be accosted for that but at the end of the day they only care about money.

    They are very "protective" of the IP.

    The Dodgers are now leading the series 3-2 and I'm pretty sure Rian Johnson, nor any other fan, really have anything to do with it.

    Well considering that Lucasfilm/Disney does Star Wars film awards every year. There are certain things they will not stop. No one was surprised when the KOTOR remake was asked to stop. The head guy on the project said from day one, he thought it might happen.

    Just watched it for the 3rd time, and I still love it. I honestly hated it after the first viewing. Everything was NOT according to my expectations... and this killed the vibe for me. Watching it for a second time after taking the "expectation chill pill" helped a lot.
