A Star Wars Story's new characters A Star Wars Story" has fallen far short of gargantuan box-office expectations. While the studio ponders whether that requires adjusting course, a small, rebellious and inordinately vocal quadrant of the fan community is delighting in -- and deriving an unfortunate message from -- those woes.

It's certainly possible that disappointment surrounding "The Last Jedi" a sentiment, incidentally, largely shared by this reviewer triggered a backlash that played a major role in "Solo's" weak opening. As politicians have discovered, there are tradeoffs involved in allowing the loudest and most belligerent voices -- those prone to speaking in Sith-like absolutes -- to define the terms of debate.
