Great article. Marvel Phase 4 is how Disney loses it’s most valuable franchise. Avatar will be next after James Cameron’s new Avatar trilogy. Disney will inject SJW, diversity, and other PC politics into the mix.

Star Wars isn't "just another" sci-fi franchise. It's THE swashbuckling adventure, epic sci-fi franchise. There isn't another one. Nobody out there is trying to make a franchise like it. It's not the "sciencey" sci-fi niche that Star Trek occupies. It's not the man vs. monster franchise that Alien is. It's really a fantasy or fairy tale. It's King Arthur in SPACE. There's not even any video game franchises that really occupy that space.
