I was just looking into this this week because of the release of Infinity War, and, FWIW, it looks like part of the issue is pricing and exclusivity — Infinity War is $25 through Vudu, while Apple is committed to selling their 4k movies for $20.

That’s fair, and that does bug me to a degree. It’s awfully pessimistic for something as generally optimistic and escapist as Star Wars.

Maybe flawed isn’t the right word (since it’s subjective), and maybe it’s just because TFA was the first new Star Wars in so long, so people were on more of a high coming out of it.

Huh — I’m *not* a deep dive Star Wars fan (though I’ve seen everything in canon multiple times), but they seem to be the ones most unhappy about this, IRT Luke wouldn’t do that, that’s now how the Force works, how is Rey so powerful already, etc.
