If he made movies on the EU, Skywalker Ranch would be burned to the ground by Star Wars nerds after he pissed in the EU bed as well. <_<

I'd watch them though, being the hopeless Star Wars addict I am. Y^Y

Hopefully no more would be made, unless its a new look from a different Star wars era,..
The last 3 made, almost completely split the fan base. Attack of the Clowns although great visuals like all the new ones, it had a silly name and contrived elements to patch holes in the story and make creditable links. Hope they do not make any more that are attached to the 6 that are out.

And Avatar: The Last Air Bender is an American franchise to begin with. The live-action adaptation may have been crap, but that's not a "Americans ruining a Japanese IP" thing.

And your other side doesn't hold up either. The biggest examples of American IP -> Japanese Anime I can think of are the Marvel Comics Anime movies....Have you seen what they did to Wolverine?...ick.
Not trying to get off topic at the moment, but nobody remembers the dragonball and mario movie? Its a great example imo.

If I deny the Dragonball movie's existance enough, maybe it'll disappear... 8D

... but I love the characters, and respect elements of story and character development.

I like how some people love to say if it's not in the movies then it's not canon. Well to me what is not canon is 90% of the stuff that happens in the last 3 movies.

First movie, Vader is seen as your standard child seen in tons of other kid movies before. Basically if it wasn't for the flashy lightsaber fights and Darth Maul, Phantom is basically a crappy Disney movie at best. To me Lucas ruined the image of Vader with this movie. He could of easily laid the groundwork for a child that lived the very hard life as a slave. He could of been maybe been whipped by his boss for whatever reason. His mother could of had a rough life too some how. But to me, they were more like sweatshop workers and not slaves. Anakin's peers all liked him. Why not add more of a motivation to fuel his hatred of life by making some bullies that beat him. Give him that drive to hate, to fear, envy, but instead of that we are given a Disney-like average child.

Second movie, Anakin (Vader) is some whiny emo teenage punk who hates his master, who he looks to as a father, for some lame reason. The reason is he is holding him back?! Where did that come from? Remember what we learned from the first movie. Anakin was an average and somewhat likeable kid. Then we are to believe that he is all of a sudden an emo, hateful, impatient, lustful, fearful, mass murdering teen?! Yet for some unknown reason, Padme knowing all of this decides to marry him anyway. How incredible is that?!

Third movie, Anakin is the same person as the 2nd movie just little older. But he is having nightmares of Padme dying. Great finally!!!! Some real moviation to turn to the dark side. To save his secret wife from doom. He seeks help from Sidious and gets the promise if they work together they can learn the secret to save her. Ok that whole thing was vague but forgiveable I guess. So Anakin turns to the dark side and serves his new Emperor. He leads armies clones to kill more people. Slaughters even more children and others helpless people. But he is driven by his love for Padme and wanting to save his wife from death. Yet at the end Anakin ends up wanting to kill Padme?!

Yes to me, this junk story is not canon. I have seen better acting, story telling in your average soap opera. Funny thing the first 3 movies were like a Space Opera. The last 3 movies were just poorly written and acted trash.
