And when I said a lot of movies in a short span, I didn't mean like this:
See, that's the thing, Tomato.  By the time Disney got the license, they practically promised to churn out as many movies as possible.  That told me I could get use to them continuing the story and making more movies fast or just not be a fan of Star Wars.  So it's something I had to accept.  Granted the time between Solo and a divisive The Last Jedi is six months and not the year that The Force Awakes to Rogue One to The Last Jedi had, but I knew it was coming.  Now we have another 18 months until the next movie comes out.  And another 5 or 6 in development plus another two series.  That's a lot of Star Wars coming in a relatively short span.

But to be honest, as much of the grand scale and socio-political/philosophic connections they get from Star Wars, at it's heart George Lucas was intent on making a fun popcorn movie.  That's what the original Star Wars scored at and that's exactly what I got from Solo.  No heavy themes.  No deep thoughts.  Just a lot of fun.


Indeed. Your comment reminds me of the Red Letter Media guys (particularly Rich Evans) saying that Star Wars is a "limited universe" which I always found kinda funny considering you had stuff like Tales of the Bounty Hunters and Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina and Tales From Jabba's Palace and Droids and Ewoks ect. but in the specific context of the movies it certainly applies.

In Nifskope, right click on Bip01 and add parent node. Add a NiNode and call it handle. That should do it!

I still gotta read his Mighty Avengers run, cuz you guys have been really me it's really good since back when Ewing was announced to write New Avengers.
I enjoyed New Avengers/U.S. Avengers. I didn't love it but I liked enough of it. And he took part in Avengers No Surrender which I found pretty great. If he was given the main Avengers book I'd probably pick it up.

I'm stepping in and telling you two to behave before things go too far and the mods step in. Let's remeber, this is a forum based on respect and all that stuff.  And before someone says someone else started it...I don't care, I'm ending it before it becomes something beyond where we are.

Jeez...can't believe I'm the one having to step in...

Well,we could argue,but whats the point?
Im gonna do my part and not buy any of it and you do your part and preorder all of that.
Thou,I would suggest looking at solicitations themselves before trying to bait someone.

Personally, I'm curious why you'd think there was anything to bait to begin with. But maybe that's just me.

... what do you paste it to? I'm working on a Frost Giant and I need to make it the size of Male Hulking. It has no Handle Node, and I need to make a transplant.
I don't think it's a limited universe per se... but I think the strength of those extended tales is that they are not films, and they have more creative freedom to tell interesting stories, particularly in the cases of background characters that aren't relevant to the franchise. They can do the varying types of stories that have helped keep the MCU from feeling stale 10 years later. But the films... there's a style of filmmaking that people expect from a Star Wars film, as well as a genre of storytelling (it's THE quintessential space opera after all). People go insane if there's no text crawl, for goodness sake.

And that'd be fine, if these films were rolling out once every couple years. If Disney were smarter about this, they'd have spaced everything out one film every few years, saved episode IX for 2027, and strung out the toy sales as long as humanly possible. Then they could have a HUGE marketing push for Fifty years of Star Wars. You give enough space for people not to be sick of you, but close enough together that you're still a household name and still selling ALL THE TOYS... and it also gives you more time to develop a long term strategy and planning for where to take these films instead of abandoning plotlines midway through a trilogy.
