Premise: talking about cashgrab sequels and spinoff crap and their backlash it came out the Solo spinoff of Star Wars....

The night after being forced to watch it I had the weirdest dream: since the movie ends with
Spoiler for Hiden:
Han winning on space poker the millennium falcon because he sabotaged Lando's ace dispenser on his sleeve and making a speech about he win and without cheating
in the dream I was the myself in it came up to the conclusion was the moral of this film was made because of the backlash on the star wars battlefront II remake and it's pay-to-win microtransaction schemes (on a game which already costs 60-80$) so kids will accept the concept of hazard gaming and fairness and indirectly these pay-to-win tactics. While I do a lot of weird dreams this was the only one about formulating a conspiracy theory.

Late reply, but I cannot agree more, even if it wasn't intentional, I bet someone unconsciously came up with such a plot for the reason they crave money. These aren't only cashgrab, but troll movies, quite a something that orders of magnitude worse than an infamous ME3. If you will ever happen to watch "The Last Jedi" (2017), don't say I did not warn you.

Anyway, these characters are already beaten to death and beyond, I will be more interested in a film with, say, Darth Plagueis as a protagonist. This dude is the sole darkside character from the wast SW lore who isn't one-dimensional. Yeah, the only Sith Lord who was a genuine team player and actually cared for others regardless of their usefulness, while being into darkside to the core. But I guess it will never happen because it is a tragic story about a villain destroyed by the Force itself because of his refusal to play the designated role in the universe. Considering who owns franchise now, it's the most certanly for the better.
