Have you been  to see Star Ward Episode VIII yet? What did you think?

Well one angry Star Wars fan has launched an online petition for The Last Jedi to be removed from the history books and re-written.

Setting up a change.org petition to “have Disney strike Star Wars Episode VIII from the official canon” following its release last week, Henry Walsh seemed so put off by the film that his petition asks for next release, Episode IX to be pushed back and for Episode VIII to be remade into something that isn’t The Last Jedi to save “the legacy of Luke Skywalker”.

“”Episode Eight was a travesty, 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 Nine and re-make Episode Eight properly to redeem Luke Skywalker’s legacy, integrity, and character.

“We stuck by you when you did things that hurt us before, so we ask you now, please don’t let this film stand. Don’t do this to us.

“Don’t take something so many of us loved so much and destroy it like this. Let us keep our heroes.”

At the time of writing, the petition has more than 7,000 signatures. What do you think? Are you in agreement with Henry or did you like the new instalment?
