The first reviews for sci-fi fantasy sequel 'Pacific Rim Uprising' pointed to the lack of original director Guillermo Del Toro's magical sensibilities. Critics argued the film was setting up a franchise rather than telling a coherent story.
One of the deleted scenes revealed in the home release of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' happened during Captain Phasma and Finn's fight. The scene shows Finn chopping off Phasma's hand, which did not appear in the movie.
Instead of inserting future scenarios, the next Star Wars Episode will somewhat adopt a step-by-step story-telling sequence. The relationship of Mark Hamill’s Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Daisy Ridley’s Jedi apprentice Rey will become the central point of the movie.
