Star Wars: The Last Jedi has become the fourth film in domestic box office history to make $200 million in its opening weekend. But despite the big profits and stellar reviews, the film has been facing backlash online, with fans expressing disappointment. Rian Johnson's sequel to The Force Awakens currently has the lowest audience score on Rotten Tomatoes (57%) compared to other Star Wars film, and we've recently listed 13 reasons why fans hate The Last Jedi.
Some fans hated the film so much that they have signed a new petition on Change.org to "have Disney strike Star Wars Episode VIII from the official canon."
"Episode VIII was a travesty," the petition reads. "It completely destroyed the legacy of Luke Skywalker and the Jedi. It destroyed the very reasons most of us, as fans, liked Star Wars. This can be fixed. Just as you wiped out 30 years of stories, we ask you to wipe out one more, the Last Jedi. Remove it from canon, push back Episode IX and re-make Episode VIII properly to redeem Luke Skywalker's legacy, integrity, and character."
At the time of this writing, 69 people have signed the petition that will be sent to The Walt Disney Company but these types of petitions usually don't make a difference even if they get thousands of signatures.
