Petition to The Walt Disney Company
Have Disney strike Star Wars Episode VIII from the official canon.
Star Wars has long been a story about two things, the Jedi and Luke Skywalker. After over 260 novels where we could follow the adventures of that great hero you, the Walt Disney Company decided to strike all of that from the official canon and wiped out three decades of lore. We were excited to see Episode VII to see how our heroes lives turned out since you took away what we knew. We saw the death of Han Solo, we saw less than a minute of Luke Skywalker. Episode VIII 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 IX and re-make Episode VIII 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.

Bring the Old Republic era of Star Wars to Netflix
It's no surprise to anyone that the Star Wars franchise has experienced a massive resurgence lately, with The Force Awakens released last year and this year with the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, it's about time that the stories from over 3,000 years before the Battle of Yavin be told to both new and old fans of the franchise. The Knights of the Republic series of games as well as the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic serve as the main vehicles to tell stories of characters such as Darth Revan, Darth Malak, Bastila Shan, Darth Traya, Meetra Surik, Darth Malgus, Satele Shan, and the list goes on. The popularity of this era in Star Wars history is felt throughout the fanbase, and I feel it would do a massive disservice to us if these stories weren't told. Why Netflix was chosen was because of the wealth of great content they have produced over the years, such as Narcos, House of Cards, and especially everything that Marvel has done and is still currently working on. Not only that, but Netflix can serve as a platform to tell these stories as they were meant to be portrayed: dark, foreboding, and a touch on the mature side. This can also give us fans our healthy dose of Star Wars while we're waiting on the new movies or the new season of Star Wars Rebels. The Old Republic era is a pivotal point in the Star Wars timeline because that's where everything changed, from the Jedi Civil War and the fall of Revan, the First Jedi Purge, and an omnipresent darkness that not only watched the chaos from afar but also kick-started the downfall. Our fanbase would love to see this on Netflix, and I feel that you would enjoy creating and adapting these stories as much as we would enjoy watching them.

Have Disney Stream The Last Jedi for Hospital-Bound Kids!
Fight Cancer with Star Wars! Let's petition Disney to provide a secure stream of The Last Jedi for any Star Wars fans, who are stuck in the hospital or unable to make it to the theater. I was recently trapped in the hospital myself battling cancer and I was afraid I would miss the movie in theaters. So I started a campaign on Twitter to raise awareness for all the kids stuck in my position, and I ended up getting the attention of Mark Hamill and Laura Dern! Join the cause to fight cancer and make Star Wars streamable for the kids who need it most! There is another petition that has been getting a lot of attention to strike The Last Jedi from canon and remake the entire movie. Now, I respect if you did not like the movie, just don't see it again and stop whining. At least give others the chance to see it first and make up their own minds. But do you really expect Disney to pull the plug on the biggest cash cow of its career just to appease a bunch of nerds, who didn't like seeing Luke Skywalker with a beard? Also, it is extremely disrespectful to the memory of Carrie Fisher, as well as anyone who worked on the movie to request that they erase it from existence like Alderaan. Star Wars clearly means a lot to so many people, but rather than petition Disney to remove a perfectly good film from the world, why not make it available to hospitalized kids, who need a spark of hope in their bleak situations? Join the cause to petition Disney to make The Last Jedi streamable for all those fighting the real battle. Help me, internet, you're my only hope.
Petition to Rian Johnson himself
Rian Johnson has to admit that The Last Jedi is awful
Plenty of Star Wars fans have seen it by now: Star Wars The Last Jedi, aka Episode VIII. It's clear not all of us are happy with it, especially not after waiting 2 years. And that has several reasons which all have been written out pretty well by other people, but I'll sum some of them up. Some might disagree with several of these points - but overall, these points overweight the good parts of the movie.The goal of this petition is to make sure that the oh so mighty Rian Johnson will know that we do not support his decisions, and to make sure he knows that what he created is not a masterpiece.These are a couple of points that really make this movie a miss: Luke's VERY out-of-character behavior.Probably the thing that has disappointed many of us. Instead of being an epic Jedi, ready to save the galaxy, he acts like a depressive weakling who is tired of everything because of the Kylo accident. Also, did he really had to be so rude towards Rey? His whole run-away thing looked so childish. We just wanted to see our fave OT hero save the day, alright! Cheap, sometimes childish humor.Speaks for itself. The "let me just throw this saber away after 2 years of people hyping on my reaction" wasn't funny. It really wasn't. Maybe to imagine, but it made this movie seem very cheap with forced humor. And oh, this was just one of the many weird and out of place forced-humor moments the movie had. The Luke ones were the worst, though. Also what about those ugly owl-furbies who were supposed to be cute little cash-grabbers? They were annoying as hell. And childish. Yay. Leia's superhero flight through debris.This is probably the most retarded thing in the movie. Being Force sensitive does not equal being able to do some sort of magic superhero leap through space. Please, please just DELETE it. There isn't even a way to explain it. It just looks ridiculous. Please, no. The great disappointement for Snoke theorists.Yet another disappointement! Wow! I guess everyone definitely enjoyed how Snoke died before even knowing who he was!! Seriously though, I still can't understand this decision, or what we'll eventually gain of it by not knowing who this man is. We've waited 2 years only to get a big "HAHA, NOT TODAY" in our face. I suppose a standalone movie could happen to explain this, but it's not about quantity, it's about quality! And if Snoke really is just Snoke, damn that would be lame. Just lame. Also the great disappointement for Rey's lineage theorists.We're on a roll I see. Now, again, 2 years for what? Nothing? Thanks! But seriously, we all hope she has a somewhat important lineage. Yeah yeah we get this whole becoming-a-hero-does-not-require-important-lineage stuff, but who's interested in a Mary Sue who came from alcoholic plebs? We want an epic Kenobi girl saving the galaxy! Kylo Ren might've lied to her though. So it remains to be seen - but don't get your hopes up. Unnecessary Finn x Rose subplot.The Finn x Rose ship itself was akward and underdeveloped, but the entire "plot" on Canto Bight was simply useless. Precious and important screen time (that could have been used as an explanation on Snokes background, for example) was wasted because Rian Johnson felt the need to include a visit to a planet that did not even serve a purpose. Not to mention that Finn's kamikaze, that could have saved the Resistance on Crait, was ruined because Rose only seemed to care about herself and about Finn. Her action could've got dozens killed. Overdoing the alien species.This thing might not have bothered many. However, for the more lore-loving fans or EU-fans, this is just as cringy as in TFA: weird, overdone crazy aliens (as if you try too hard). Especially Canto Bight had lots of these monsters. Do they know that there are still very human-looking species out there? Or is it all either humans or extremely weird species? Just give us back our beloved Twi'leks, Togrutas, Zabraks etc. Thanks.Feel free to add other points in the comments!I'm sure we can all think of other bad aspects of this movie. Some might consider Reylo, Rian's ignorance towards Star Wars lore or the forced diversity. However, I suppose the couple things above are the main things.Thanks a lot for this, Rian.Sincerely,Not the fans you're looking for.

Focus on the never aired Lucasfilm products instead of creating new ones
From the moment Disney bought Lucasfilm, Star Wars was redesigned into something different than what was expected from us- grown up Star Wars fans. It started with the cancelation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the beginning of the new animated series Star Wars Rebels and kept going with the new movies, which changed the whole Star Wars universe upside down. many fans like me have lost interest and hope in Disney's products, especially because the content is mostly meant for children and the reason that it came in place of Lucasfilm products that were in development. I am well aware of the rumor that Disney bought the company in order to use the legends of Star Wars and make them more known, and there were many products in development you could've used for example Star Wars Underworld or Star Wars 1313 and more. As much as I understand the need in a different perspective,I am sure it will not only bring you new fans, but it will also bring back our lost hope in Star Wars so please take it into consoderation.

Star Wars fans, unite for the future of the saga!
It is clear that many of us Star Wars fans are disappointed by how The Last Jedi has turned out and where Disney is taking our favorite saga after two episodes in the sequel trilogy. It is also clear, however, that they're never going to strike Episode VIII from the official canon and remake the movie. Nevertheless, we can still express our dissatisfaction in a civilized and more effective way in order to possibly make an impact on the future of the franchise by signing this petition in large numbers. If all who liked Rogue One better than The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi (and who hold it more worthy of the legacy) unite under the same flag, it will be there for everyone to see how many from the core fanbase all around the world feel the Star Wars saga is currently not getting the treatment it deserves. This article serves as a good and non-vitriolic summary of most issues longtime fans (and maybe others, too) have taken with The Last Jedi, collecting the problems of Episode VIII in six main points: The Spaceball Menace Dramaturgy or Bust Johnson vs. Abrams Snoke vs. Palpatine There is Another Skywalker Infinity Wars If you happen to agree with those, or at least with some of the issues elaborated on in the article, there's a good chance you also think a change in creative approach is necessary. Let's make some noise and show Lucasfilm and Disney our true numbers and commitment!

Re-release The Phantom Menace and Episode I Racer PC games on Steam and/or GOG
These are two classic Star Wars games that coincided with the release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Currently, they not available for purchase on either Steam or GOG. If these games could be made available one day, it would make many gamers happy.
