This division within the fanbase might need been fuelling rumors that claimed Disney was planning to erase the Sequel Trilogy from the continuity, however that’s since been shot down by LRM On-line, who reached out to their supply at Lucasfilm, who’s denied that that is taking place.
It began when YouTuber Doomcock’s video titled “Star Wars Leaks Reveal Precisely How the Sequel Trilogy Will Be ERASED” put ahead the concept that the present trilogy could be relegated to Star Wars Legends standing. This might have meant that the three movies wouldn’t be thought-about canon within the Star Wars Universe, falling outdoors the span of the unique six films produced by George Lucas.
Naturally, detractors of the final three films have been rallying behind the concept. There was even a proof offered for the way Disney would deal with the transition with out disrupting the lore. In response to the video, a plot level from the Star Wars Rebels animated present held the reply.
“Within the Season four episode 13 installment titled ‘A World Between Worlds,’ the idea of the Veil of The Power was launched, a mystical dimension of The Power that connects all time and area. I’ve obtained affirmation from two further sources claiming that that is spot on – that certainly Lucasfilm realizes they’ve a large drawback on their arms, that the Star Wars franchise is all however useless, and regardless of Kathleen Kennedy’s hatred of this concept, Lucasfilm is getting ready to render the Sequel Trilogy null and void.”
The concept additionally identified that Emperor Palpatine’s resurrection in The Rise of Skywalker additional facilitated a reboot and its use of the Veil of The Power. Going the multiverse route to suit the narrative truly did sound considerably possible if Disney had actually deliberate to hit the reset button.
As Doomcock defined:
“Emperor Palpatine had a room on the second Dying Star referred to as The Room of Mirrors. The mirrors have been created by The Emperor previous to the Dying Star by the Darkish Facet utilizing historical Sith rituals. These mirrors linked to the Veil of The Power served many functions. Utilizing them, Palpatine might manipulate The Power in some ways to additional his goals. Han doesn’t stroll stupidly right into a lightsaber, Leia doesn’t fly like Mary Poppins by area, Luke has nothing to run away from and consumes no inexperienced milk, and I’m knowledgeable there will probably be no superb ‘surprise Rey’ as she was born after The Emperor’s loss of life.”
Ah, Star Wars theories, don’t you simply love them? Even earlier than being dismissed, this concept was meant to be taken with a large burlap sack of salt. Nonetheless, the final three films garnered sturdy unfavorable opinions and plenty of followers would like to see them wiped from existence, which might be why the video grew to become so in style.
However this does make one surprise simply precisely what Rian Johnson’s rumored trilogy could possibly be about, and what timeline Taika Waititi’s untitled Star Wars movie is a part of. Both means, many extra tales from the galaxy far, far-off are coming quickly, with Lucasfilm even reportedly planning to create an MCU-style TV universe.
