Star Wars: Disney's catastrophic decision

A few days ago, the Cannes Film Festival rewarded George Lucas with an honorary Palme d'Or presented by Francis Ford Coppola. The event, immortalized with a photo of the two legends of New Hollywood hugging each other, was enough to make fans nostalgic for the era when theStar Warslicense was managed by a filmmaker… Indeed, since the takeover of Lucasfilm by Disney, theStar license Warsis struggling to achieve this. arouse the enthusiasm that it once provoked, and this at a high level. because of a quality much too uneven.

If we had good, even very good (notably with Rebels,Rogue One, The Mandalorian,The Bad Batch, Jedi: Fallen Order and Andor), Lucasfilm has also produced films and series of shouted out by fans, such as the postlogy,The Book of Boba Fettor even (to a lesser extent) the seriesAhsokaandObi-Wan Kenobi. Whilethe seriesThe Acolyte– the first audiovisual work to be released immerse ourselves in the era of the Haute-Republic – must be launched on June 4next in the United States, and the next day in France, we have just learned news which has enough to harm our initial enthusiasm… Indeed, The length of the first four episodes ofThe Acolytewas reduced. revealed in an article published by the very informed Bespin Bulletin 

  • Éepisode 1: 41 minutes
  • Episode 2: 36 minutes
  • Episode 3: 42 minutes
  • Episode 4: 32 minutes

< p>Considering that the end credits often last more than five minutes on Disney+, you should therefore expect to see more. Extremely short episodes. It is a shame that Disney insists on this. lock Lucasfilm with this instruction which, not content with going to; contrary to current television standards, poses major problems of writing and rhythm. This instruction is all the more damaging in the present case sinceThe Acolytewas an opportunity to discover theStar Warsuniverse from a different perspective. a still little-known era.
