Ninth Circuit Judge Makes It Legally Official: Disney's Stat Wars Sequels Were "Mediocre and Schlocky"

The case's central question was whether ConAgra, which had previously owned Wesson Oil and had agreed to no longer market it as "100% natural," could be sued over Wesson Oil now being marketed just that way again.

But the thing is, ConAgra had sold Wesson Oil to a third party.

But these litigants wanted to sue ConAgra about the marketing of a product they no longer owned or sold.

On June 1st, Ninth Circuit Court Judge Kenneth K. Lee took a shot at Disney's Star Wars sequel trilogy in a ruling regarding a class action lawsuit against ConAgra Foods, Inc.

In the ruling, Judge Lee used the Disney Star Wars films in an analogy comparing them to a statement ConAgra made regarding Wesson Oil's use of the phrase "100% Natural."

He reasoned that suing ConAgra over Wesson Oil, which they no longer owned, was as meritless as suing George Lucas over the poor quality of the Disney-owned sequels.

He then roasted the Disney Star Wars sequel trilogy writing, "That is like George Lucas promising no more mediocre and schlocky Star Wars sequels shortly after selling the franchise to Disney. Such a promise would be illusory."

In case you're thinking, "But that just means George Lucas has no legal responsibility for any of the sequels, it doesn't mean he's saying the sequels were bad," the judge makes clear that they're bad:

In a footnote, he specifically referred to The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. He wrote, "As evident by Disney's production of The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker."

Lawyer Ted Frank who represented M. Todd Henderson in the lawsuit declared The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker being described as "mediocre and schlocky" is now "a matter of law."

And then the Alabama AG dunked on Disney, too!

Attorney General Steve Marshall would get in on the action adding his own thoughts about how bad the Disney Star Wars films are.

He wrote on Twitter, "Extremely proud to be a part of this huge victory for consumers. My only regret is not having been able to save them from the huge disaster of the Disney Star Wars sequel trilogy."

Correction, though: Saying that the Last Jedi was terrible is very 2017.

All the cool kids now proclaim that the Disney sequels were bad from "The Force Awakens."

I don't know if you guys remember this, but I was trashing that in 2015 while everyone else was saying, "But they used real shooting locations and the Computer Cartoons looked so good!"

Yeah, that's true.

But the movie was horrible.

I say this not to absolve Rian Johnson but to condemn the vile hack J.J. Abrams.

J.J. Abrams has been promoted with every failure, and is now in charge of Warner Bros' DC universe.

And his first big decision:

Getting anti-white racist Ta-Naheshi Coates to write the movie, despite him having no success whatsoever in two miserable years working at Marvel, and then deciding to race-swap Clark Kent/Superman into a black man.

Via SC Reviews. Who also brings us video of two attention-seeking idiots in New York City staging an impromptu anti-Trump performance art piece. It's about as good as anything that's been on the late night shows for five years.

AllahPundit declared it "My new favoritest art, ever!"
