Exactly what I'm jazzed about. Most of the people bitching around the internet about this really come off as bitter because they didn't want that to happen, they wanted a time capsule so to speak of nostalgic nonsense so they could feel all their favorite feelings about their favorite characters. The "backlash" from people around the net (which seems to come mainly from people who really actually dug the Star Wars Expanded Universe Novels which I found cringe worthy at best) really seems like a whole divorce from reality because the new cannon is not their head cannon or even faithful to the spirit of it, so this film pretty much thoroughly gutted people who's ultimate fantasy growing up was Han and Leia totes being an adorable couple with a bunch of kids who are all Jedi and Luke getting married to Mara Jade and basically living happily ever after and all that trashy fan fic.
I have even seen posts from people saying this film is such a betrayal that the Yuuzhan Vong/New Jedi Order plot verbatim would have been preferred to this. All because big bad Disney stuck it to them.
I mean the crowd that was really totally convinced for reasons I could never hope to understand and actually hyped about Snoke turning out to be Anakin's father aka Darth Plagueis The Wise are really like having seizures over this shit. Total fucking meltdown in the pit of fanboy/girl hell right now.
I'm over here like this means it's finally cool to like Star Wars again!
WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN SNOKE ISN'T DARTH PLAGUEIS AND REY ISN'T A FEMALE CLONE OF OBI-WAN KENOBI?!?
