Star Wars fans have recently launched a petition to have The Last Jedi movie removed from the franchise’s canon.
This petition that has been posted on Change.org, has earned just 1,800 signatures. As the awareness spreads, the number of signatures may increase if fans leave the theaters unsatisfied.
Walsh had loaded this petition’s description with a whole lot of spoilers:
“Star Wars has long been a story about two things, the Jedi and Luke Skywalker,” Walsh wrote.
“After over 260 novels where we could follow the adventures of that great hero you, the Walt Disney Company decided to strike all of that from the official canon and wiped out three decades of lore. We were excited to see Episode VII to see how our heroes lives turned out since you took away what we knew. We saw the death of Han Solo, we saw less than a minute of Luke Skywalker.”
Walsh was infuriated to see creative decisions for Luke in this movie and prompted the word “travesty” in the review.
“It completely destroyed the legacy of Luke Skywalker and the Jedi,” Walsh wrote.
“It destroyed the very reasons most of us, as fans, liked Star Wars. This can be fixed. Just as you wiped out 30 years of stories, we ask you to wipe out one more, the Last Jedi. Remove it from canon, push back Episode IX and re-make Episode VIII properly to redeem Luke Skywalker’s legacy, integrity, and character.”
“We stuck by you when you did things that hurt us before, so we ask you now, please don’t let this film stand,” Walsh said. Don’t do this to us. Don’t take something so many of us loved so much and destroy it like this. Let us keep our heroes.”
There are no comments from Disney or the filmmakers regarding this.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now playing in theaters.
