It's Like Poetry— It Rhymes!

Above is a new poster for The Rise Of Gorge, er, I mean The Rise Of Skywalker, Disney's latest attempt to destroy the Star Wars franchise forever.

Note the figures of Rey and Kylo Ren in a furious lightsaber battle in the foreground, with the brooding presence of another Kylo Ren looming above them in stark red and black.

This seems familiar, but I can't quite figure out where I've seen it before...

Oh yeah, now I remember! It's a blatant swipe from the Return Of The Jedi poster from 1983!

Before anyone says anything, I get it. I know the new poster's not a swipe, but an homage to the old one. But I don't care. You have no idea how much this pisses me off.

Disney's obviously hoping if they remind the public of the Original Trilogy enough, some of its cachet will rub off on their new abomination. Nice try.

This just goes to show how desperate Disney is. They know they have another disaster on their hands, and they're doing everything in their power to generate buzz in a disinterested public. It's actually fascinating to see the depths they're willing to sink to in order to sell tickets to this fustercluck.
