Disney have never been under so much pressure to produce the goods as with Star Wars. Their traditional fare isn't judged by rabid fans lurking in every corner of the internet waiting for the slightest misstep.

It was the script (or lack of) that caused the problems with the sequels. I'm not surprised they're trying to get it right and we should be thankful they are taking time to do so.

Suppose, when you step away, maybe it's cos Disney never worked with a SciFi property before, and certainly not one of this size and (relative) complexity. The last SciFi movie they tried before Star Wars was ... lordy... The Black Hole maybe? Perhaps the company has this big cognitive blindspot in its creative departments that doesn't know how to work with SciFi *shrug*
People talk about the acquisition of Star Wars properties as if once they were purchased Disney fired everyone involved previously and started churning out projects by the same people that develop their content. Like when nearly any somewhat successful company is acquired, you try to keep a lot of the same people around and provide them new resources and oversight to assist things. Sometimes it works, like with Marvel and Pixar, and sometimes it doesn't work quite as well, see Star Wars.

Disney hold ultimate responsibility for what is churned out but the rot is within Lucasfilm. As I said earlier in one of the threads, it appears Disney are changing their approach to them by bringing in Feige. I wouldn't be surprised if sending for new scripts is also down to Disney getting themselves involved earlier in the process now, rather than waiting until it is half shot and realising what a mess they've made and then requiring re-shoots. If anything I'd see them pausing here as a positive sign for the likely quality we'll get.

I think it's fair to say that she is part of the problem though.

Good. They should use the time to reorientate themselves to Deborah Chows style from what she did with the Mandalorian
