Fans Hate Goofy Star Wars Marvel Jokes: 'They Can Jump' Back Fires

It appears as if all the rumors suggesting Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker may be a complete disaster may be true as a new clip offers absolutely no hope for the final film in the Skywalker saga.

Similar to those cringe-inducing Poe jokes at the beginning of Rian Johnson's awful The Last Jedi, we see that J.J. Abrams is not going to fix Star Wars as a new clip recently released offers perhaps an even cringier line with: "They fly now."

I'm guessing Disney was hoping that #TheyFlyNow would go viral and help promote the movie, but just the opposite has happened, as it's simply awful.

Fans on social media have even pointed out that Poe being clueless, as well as Finn, about the fact that Stormtroopers can fly, makes zero sense - just like all of the Disney Star Wars movies - because, in the comics, Poe has seen the Stormtroopers fly before, not to mention Finn was a Stormtrooper.

So we see J.J. Abrams and those that worked on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker didn't bother doing their homework, and similar to Rian Johnson, just didn't care.

Star Wars They Fly Now

Star Wars "They Fly Now" is just plain dumb

The good news is that Abrams will be gone following Episode IX, with reports offering the creative team behind the exceptional Disney Plus series, The Mandalorian, with Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, will be taking over the creative direction of Star Wars from Kathleen Kennedy's awful approach.

Regarding The Mandalorian, the show is better than anything Disney has done with Star Wars, and The Mandalorian has also succeeded with their own popular catchphrases, which obviously this Episode 9 clip was desperately trying to emulate.
