Star Wars writer says he was fired for criticizing Skywalker's rise


Star Wars fans have been arguing Skywalker's rise since its premiere in December at the end of last year, but it seems that Mouse House is getting tired of all the controversy surrounding the latest film in the Skywalker saga.

Abrams' final entry in the Sequel trilogy proved to be as divisive as its predecessor. Where The Last Jedi subverted expectations and tried to innovate the franchise, Skywalker's rise He became obsessed with nostalgic elements and moments of fan service that recalled the things people loved from the first two trilogies. Unfortunately, ultimately, serving the opinion of fans It was counterproductive in the face of Disney. If you're a fan of Rian Johnson's middle act or hate it with a burning passion, you can't deny that Episode IX He has a fair amount of problems, most of them related to the fact that the film feels rushed and convoluted at best, not to mention inconclusive.

Of course, it is true that there is a lot of toxicity between Star Wars Fans when it comes to voicing their opinions on the galaxy far, far away, but apparently Disney can no longer bear simple criticism. The company recently fired one of the writers of after he talked about his problems with Skywalker's rise in several tweets

Since making the announcement, Alex Kane has deprived his Twitter account, but this is what he initially said about it:

"I was finally removed from the Star Wars dot com contributor section because … I don't like a bad movie. I wrote for them for almost three years; it's a bummer."

Kane apparently had a complaint with Rey assuming the Skywalker family surname at the end of the film, an issue that an estimated number of other fans have complained about in recent months.

"I don't hate the name Rey Skywalker alone," he previously wrote on his Twitter feed. "It just feels like something that hasn't been earned and out of left field when she was trained by an Organa and her soulmate was a Solo and Luke … he was something like this guy who was a jerk to her for a few days" . I find myself wishing that the last scene doesn't exist. "

Honestly, if Mouse House has decided to fire a person just for criticizing a certain plot development in a Star Wars movie then it's a low point even by your standards. But for now, let's hope there is a workable explanation behind this, even though we haven't heard from either side on the matter yet.
