    I'm excited for the Kennedy era. I think George picked the right person to handle things.

    I agree. The Kennedy era of Star Wars has already been injected with new life. Much needed life and energy. It's going to be exciting to see where they take the franchise.

    My wallet however...is not excited.

    Although you included the link on top, you forgot to quote the article, Gabe.

    On how Kennedy got JJ to do Star Wars:

    After the rule of two being too confusing for them to follow in the Clone Wars, I fear that other little details such as that will simply be phased out of continuity. I enjoy a good Sith as much as the next guy, but come on...

    And yes, I know that at least after the events of VI the rule is no longer in practice; I was just using that as an example since they broke it during a time that it was still practiced.

    The Rule of Two has been perfectly observed...Ventress was never an Official Apprentice, only an Assassin, Maul & Savage have acted alone on their own...Even now Maul will do the bidding of Sidious, but not to replace Dooku...

    Like someone else said...the rule is being followed in the Clone Wars. Maul and his brother may call themselves Sith, but Maul is delusional. So you can't really take him at his word. :) Sidious and Dooku are the only "official" sith.

    They had the character/franchise, just not the movies.

    To be fair, the people who called for the boycott of Fury Road (or to be more specific, blogger Aaron Clarey on the website Return Of Kings) are not MRAs; in fact they have been rather critical of the movement. They are more Pick-Up Artists than anything. In fact, YouTube personality Sargon of Akkad asked actual MRAs on Twitter if they had any issues with Fury Road, and most of them said that they liked it or were neutral. Not defending Return Of Kings, just thought I'd clear the air a bit.

    Also Kathleen was the quarterback on her high school football team? I like her even more now.
