Do you get the impression that Disney ruins their and their required properties by not being true to the source.
Btw, Greedo shot first. /trollThat’s why I have my original Star Wars DVDs. I like to see it without all of its crazy changes.
Empire was not originally received well and I would disagree that Disney hasn't done Star Wars right. The main issue is MCU was comics adapted to movies whereas Star Wars has a fan base who had the image built up of exactly what they wanted in terms of the story continuing. MCU had a comics fan base but there was no real movie audience with pre-conceived notions about what to truly expect. And so Disney had a lot more freedom to take license with the characters while still figuring out how to represent them. Other than the subversions not being set up well, I thought The Last Jedi was good follow up to the first of the sequels trilogy.Dialogue was changed in Empire too to make it work better with Ep I-III. I like watching the original theatrical versions.
Now, MCU is really probably the best example of what Disney did right with a property.
