Back away from that Wookie

2 years agoopen0

Kylo Ren tells Rey to “Let the past die. Kill it if you have to.” And so this new trilogy has picked off our old heroes one by one. First Han Solo, murdered by his monstrous offspring. Then Luke Skywalker, whose Force projection trick proved to be too much to survive. And somehow Leia needs to go, too, because Carrie Fisher is sadly no longer with us.

Enough is enough, I say. Let’s not kill off any more of our beloved characters. Star Wars has always had an element of death and tragedy to it, from Luke’s uncle and aunt and Obi-Wan Kenobi dying in A New Hope, to Anakin dying after he finally came around to the Light. But between Han Solo, Luke, Leia, Admiral Ackbar and the entire cast of Rogue One, I’m all deathed-out. (Yes, I know that’s not a word.)

Don’t you dare kill Chewbacca, JJ Abrams. Don’t. You. Dare. And if you bring back Lando, don’t kill him off either. Don’t decommission C-3PO or R2-D2. Let some of these characters live a long and happy life. I want Chewie to grow old and grey with his Porg collection. Leave them alone, Disney, you monster.
