“During that time, Disney bought Lucasfilm and breathed life back into "Star Wars," plus fans of that franchise at least had a couple of animated series to keep them going until December 2015, when "The Force Awakens" arrived on cinema screens. And "Star Wars" fans are a demanding bunch too, as was seen when the polarizing final sequel "The Rise of Skywalker" was released at the end of last year.
The reaction resulted in the widespread adoption of a new term, "toxic fandom." It can be generally summarized as a state of possessiveness and entitlement that leads to a feeling of superiority among a fan community. Even though the concept had existed for a long time prior, this was the first time it had been seen on such a scale.”
I am sorry but that is self serving hokum.
They didn’t breathe life into it as rather they twisted it into their own feminist manifesto as the cost of a coherent story line and universe.
It’s not “toxic” fandom, it’s fans rebelling at what hot garbage they served up.
“Rogue One” was the only new film that didn’t have an agenda and kept the spirit of the original movies. It’s easily the best of the new films.
Basically the film makers should know that if they pass gas the viewers will notice. The only thing toxic was what made it to the screen!
All these Hollywood types like Kurtzman are so weak. They are give absolute and complete control over an entire franchise to do with as they wish. Then, when the criticism comes down, they whine and whine."There's a difference between debate and toxicity. Debate is essential."

Nod, kurtzman isn't good for star trek. His brand of star trek really has very little to do with core star trek. It's not TOS. It's not TNG. It's not DS9. It's not even Voyager or Enterprise.Alex Kurtzman is just really bad at Star Trek. They need to remove him and everyone else running is right now and let them create a new, original scifi series. Star Trek isn't one of those properties, you call a "platform" so that you can ignore it's foundation and do the opposite of what it represents.
