Star Wars fans: Our galaxy’s saltiest bunch of nerds


Star Wars fans are never satisfied, always complaining about something for one reason or another.

A galaxy far, far away is a magical place of escapism for Star Wars fans, providing a break from the grind of everyday life. Who doesn’t want to be Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia growing up? Many of us can also relate to Anakin Skywalker’s fall to the Dark Side, empathizing with a man who just wanted to save those closest to him.

Finn renouncing an oppressive “order” was a big deal for those wanting to stand up to hatred in the real world. Star Wars is a place full of hopes, dreams, ambition, and creativity. Of peace, love, harmony, and balance. Right?

Wrong! Salt Wars fans — I mean Star Wars fans — are the salt of the earth and for all of the wrong reasons.

The Original Trilogy has been the measuring rod for all other Star Wars content following, but that’s not necessarily a good thing. Comparing new content to the original saga will always set you up for disappointment, especially when storytellers are looking to take the galaxy to new, far, far away places.

Star Wars fans are embracing their inner Mick Jagger, where they can’t get no satisfaction. The prequel trilogy bashing is because it’s not enough like the first films. The Force Awakens has their many haters since it is TOO much like the originals.

Now, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson takes the story in a fresh, entirely different direction, then is met by those who do not want to let the past die. Make up your minds, people. It seems many complain just for the sake of complaining.

As fellow Star Wars nerds, we understand that you do not have to like everything that the Lucasfilm story group releases. Having an opinion and being constructively critical is not a bad thing.

However, the reasoning for a substantial portion of complaints about the prequels, The Last Jedi, and even the new canon as a whole, is just flat out ridiculous. Insulting those who enjoy the new content is a sad look — which we’ve seen time and time again on our social media pages.

Fans have even started a petition in an attempt to remove Star Wars: The Last Jedi from the actual storyline. Give us a break. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to watch it. Stop spreading your seeds of hate, which lead to the path of the Dark Side.

Unfortunately, the hate train is likely to continue, with Solo: A Star Wars Story now less than six months away from release.

That very mob of Star Wars haters are ready to burn down the franchise, but thank the Maker we have a higher “Force” of those prepared to defend it. As the Reverend King says: “can’t we all just get along?”
