HOLLYWOOD – Disney announced today that Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi will be the last Star Wars movie.
The Last Jedi is to close the Star Wars saga, it was revealed today. All the other proposed Star Wars movies have been canceled.
Kathleen Kennedy, the producer in charge of the franchise, spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec about the decision:
We just decided we were bored of doing them. At first we were all very excited but then after a while it was like Star Wars, Star Wars, Star Wars! Jeez enough already. I mean we’re a bunch of grown ups in a room talking about if Ziphius Fey is going to have to go to Booglyon 8 to get the weeBa Krystals.
Wow! They go to Booglyon 8!
And then it wouldn’t be so bad, but we’re talking about a film every year. Maybe even more.
But what about the films that are already in production, or have even completed post-production like the Han Solo stand alone?
The Han Solo movie is a mess. Half of it is Lego and the rest of it is Far and Away. Tom Cruise turns up speaking in an Oirish accent – ‘What are all ye leetle fellows doin’, made of bricks an all?’ – It’s an embarrassment.
So that’s it. No more Star Wars.
Yep. It was fun. But this way think of the next original idea that will come along and finally have some space to breathe.
Star Wars Episode 8 The Last Jedi will be released in December.
