It’s Christmas time and about time to wrap up 2018. Best of wishes to all and to all a better 2019. It was a year of mixed emotions and reactions for fans – the first year we had two Star Wars films back-to-back, a year of backlash for some, and a time of course correction for others. There’s a lot of good-looking Star Wars planned for this coming year and I plan to enjoy it to the fullest. And I hope it’s enjoyable for fans too, whether it appeals to the masses or just gets a reaction out of a few people. While Star Wars is a commercial product, we can’t forget that real artists and writers put heart and soul into new projects every day. While a singular work of fiction may not appeal to you, it’s important to remember that it has a right to exist because it will appeal to someone, and it may be very important to them. Don’t be ‘that guy’ who dismisses or is openly hostile to things because it doesn’t appeal to them, and because it doesn’t appeal to them it shouldn’t appeal to anyone ever. Everyone hates that guy so for a better 2019, don’t be that guy.
Here’s to happy holidays, peace on every planet (despite our favorite franchise having ‘wars’ in the title,) and a few things crossed off your bounty list too.
Happy Life Day, and may your holiday be special,
-Supreme Leader David
