Just fuck off and let the fans enjoy Star Wars you big bag of cocks.
Can a company be so out of touch with it's fanbase?
I think you mean, with a small but very vocal element of its fan base. 'The Fan base' is broadly happy with the output, the box office shows that.
If anything is clear about Solo's box office takings (I note that despite the context of prior SW releases, it is still in line with other 'blockbusters' in recent years from other franchises) its that Disney has made an error in release date and the marketing package for the film, linking the reaction to TLJ is laughable, the world really isn't that simplistic I'm afraid.
Despite reading a very repetitive volume of rhetoric against Disney an TLJ, I have in person met far more people that are very happy with the last 3-4 years of releases, the 'casual fan' will generate far more income at the box office than a 'hard core fan' by sheer volume alone and that is where they will pay attention as a business.
The 'fan base' is a very daft term really, what is a fan? someone that frequents FB and forums to comment? No, it's the same as it is in football, most 'fans' don't go to every football game their team plays, many more don't even watch every game on TV, even more than that only watch MOTD 3-4 times a year but will cheer or enter into banter conversations at work when their team wins that weekend... the casual fan is what makes up any fan base, its what influences.
It is most important to note here though that NONE of these proposed cancellations have been confirmed on ANY official channels at this stage. Nothing on Star Wars .com, nothing on Disney and nothing on any mainstream news channels, all blogs, forums, podcasts and internet chatter. once again we may all be discussing something (like the SW universe as a whole) that is made up nonsense.. move along, move along...
