No one can honestly tell me that delaying the movie six months couldn't have done anything but help the movie in some way. Instead they spent a ton more money to finish it in time for Memorial Day.

And look at the results. The movie LOOKS bad. And what I mean is that it looks unnaturally dark, badly filtered and murky.

At the very least, you would've given everyone more time to polish it up. The audience also would've had more of a break which helps in a crowded summer season.

But I guess the lesson here is that you can't release two Star Wars movies less than six months apart, it's a bad idea.

But look what what happened with Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty. Yes they are video games, but you can't tell me that Ubisoft and Activision didn't overly milk or dilute those franchises.

The new home release is packed with bonus content that takes fans behind the scenes to experience compelling discussions with the star-studded cast and screenwriters Jonathan Kasdan and Lawrence Kasdan, a revealing feature on Chewie and his enduring friendship with Han, and several never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes.

Honestly... I think they were simply trying to keep 9 as far away from the blast radius as possible and give as much gap until the next movie as they could. 18 months rather than the usual 12 to hopefully give the wreckage of the past 6 months time to cool off.

I genuinely think had the same movie been released st Xmas instead it would haven made more money. You need more than 5/6 months between each movie IMO.
