A lot of people didn’t like The Last Jedi. Whether it’s a longtime fan or newcomers to the franchise, most lauded the film for adding a lot of new things to the old lore of The Force and for the character arcs of Finn, Rose, and General Holdo, believing they weren’t written well. It was even pulled from China cinema’s for underperforming, despite doing well in the States.

Now some fans are looking to remake the film, with an agenda to “not make one half of the fandom happy over the other, [but] to make a film that the fandom in general as a whole enjoys.” “This is a campaign to provide Disney an opportunity to course correct with the Star Wars franchise,” Remake The Last Jedi said in a recent statement. “The fans are completely divided and the core goal of Star Wars has been abandoned.”

The campaign site states a number of unnamed producers of on this initiative have pledged to cover the budget, but pledging is open to everyone. The campaign even states it’s already raised over $13,000,000 USD, but this can’t be proven since the fundraising is on their site. Many fans, including celebrities, Star Wars writers, and even the director of The Last Jedi himself Rian Johnson have commented on the campaign.
