Freddie Prinze Jr. Unleashes an Epic Rant Against Star Wars Haters

The Star Wars franchise has arguably at all times been a topic of debate and debate, however the launch of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in 2017 took it into an entire new course. While the movie was well-received by critics and went on to make over a billion {dollars} on the international field workplace, it was the topic of numerous backlash on social media, with some vehemently arguing that the franchise as they knew it was lifeless. In a latest look on Jeff Dye’s Friendship Pod podcast, actor and Star Wars: Rebels star Freddie Prinze Jr. addressed this latest surge in fandom negativity in a reasonably epic rant. In the phase, which you’ll try video of beneath, Prinze makes use of the information he was taught by Rebels creator Dave Filoni to deal with every part from the truth that followers aren’t glad that “Han Solo gave the Millennium Falcon to a girl”, to how Luke Skywalker’s story basically mirrors that of a Disney princess.

“Luke Skywalker is Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty! He can speak to issues that don’t converse English, and he understands what they’re f***ing saying; he will get a fairy godfather as a substitute of a fairy godmother, who teaches him easy methods to be the very best Jedi on the planet very quickly f***ing flat,” Prince continued.

Prince went on to argue that followers have gamified their understanding of how the Force works throughout the Star Wars world, which strays away from George Lucas’ true imaginative and prescient. (While throwing in a tangent about how the “Grey Jedi” cannot truly work within the Star Wars universe.)

“People bitch in regards to the dumbest issues.” Prinze says in part of the video. “These are archetype characters, these are George Lucas’ phrases. There is not any Jack Bauer in Star Wars, that character does not exist, it is not Han Solo, Han Solo’s a reluctant hero, that is the archetype. Darth Maul, who all people needs to win, and is everybody’s favourite as a result of he appears sick and he’s nice within the video video games… f**okay you guys! He’s Sisyphus! He is born to fail! Learn your Greek mythology like, I do not know, George f**king Lucas did! He’s cursed to roll a boulder up the hill solely to have it roll to the underside once more each single time for eternity. That is Darth Maul’s quest. He’s in on the joke, you guys. He is aware of it. He’s simply cursed to dwell that life.”
