I think Star Wars has been a pretty well acknowledged failure, though. It brought in buckets of money, but was expected to bring in twice as much. Its attempts to spin out and expand have somewhat fallen on their face. And, unlike with Marvel (though we'll see what happens now, with some of the best heroes no longer doing films and the big serialized event over), there's absolutely Star Wars fatigue. Disney did not buy Star Wars anticipating fatigue, at least not this quickly.

I still say it's because they made it so damn small. It's a big universe. Or galaxy. Or whatever. Instead of showing us new stories, it's showing us the past of existing stories. I am not a Star Wars fan, but I think I speak for the public when I say no one wants to see what made Han Solo the rogue that he is - you destroy the mystique. No one wants to see Obi One Kanobi taking a preteen Luke around. We don't need to see this stuff. It chips away from our heroes, rather than adding to them.

Give us new conflicts, new people to root for, and new things to capture our imagination, rather than stories that take away from our imagination. Marvel largely does this. We don't get a story about what Iron Man was like in middle school, instead we get an entirely new character doing something entirely new, that eventually overlaps with something new Iron Man is doing.

MS is fishing for the next billion € fine ... which is fine by me. More money for the EU is always good.

CenturyLink, Frontier took FCC cash, failed to deploy all required broadband.

Whether this particular story is true or not, Kathleen Kennedy is cancer; one disaster after another under her rule. Give Favreau and Filoni the reins and move along.

Can't NOT wait to see how awful Indiana Jones 5 is going to be.
