I'm glad we can finally agree that this isn't fourth-hand information."Connected at a very high level" means "I have friends who work there." This is third-hand information at best, and most likely just an outright fabrication.
If you honestly believe that that's why the Disney trilogy is disliked by fans, we have a seriously fundamental disagreement. And a sad one, at that.Despite the whining from misogynist fanboys who are deeply offended by the presence of girls in their precious Star Wars movies, the films Kennedy has overseen since taking the reins have grossed billions of dollars.
As to the second point, yes, they've made money, but did they hit investor's expectations?
Who knows? Disney waived their hand and wiped out all of the EU. Nothing prevents them from doing the same thing again. Especially if there is money to be made.I might believe that there's some friction behind-the-scenes between Favreau and Kennedy. That's not inconceivable. But the idea that Favreau plans to erase the sequel trilogy from canon to please the ranting morons on Reddit? No, that's just stupid. Zero chance of that ever happening.
