I watched a number of YouTube videos by fans who were predicting the story for 8 and even put some artwork together to represent some of the key scenes. Every single fan idea was better than the movie. Everything I guessed would happen myself, was a better idea than what actually happened in 8.
They (Disney) need to recognise they've got to make a 9th film based on what happened in this one. I don't think it can be done, even with the best story line in the history of film and TV.
I actually think they'd be better off scrapping this movie and remaking it with a different plot, different story, different scenes, different outcomes and different.......everything. They could draw in some of the loose ends from 7 and have a great project in 9 to look forward to.
As things stand I think fans will simply not bother seeing 9.
Not sure how this film scored 7.3 out of 10 at the time I wrote my review.
As I was finishing my review my 19 year old son asked me "are you really giving it two stars?". I think that sums it up. He thinks I am being too generous.
