As I've said in the past, i don't dispute your notion that there are some internal politics going on with Iger and Kennedy. I don't think it is to the extent that people who are wishing for her firing are imagining.After an incredibly divisive movie (fact) and an unconscionable Star Wars flop? ...one that ties into a ride they just happened to open today?
...I’m sorry...what were we talking about again? This thing makes you dizzy.
But you are really stretching on this one. Kennedy has been present for nearly every SW media event. Star wars celebration which you are poo pooing as "a comic-con" is one of the biggest fan celebrations in the industry. One where all of these die hard fans that people claim want to see her go, were there. If they were worried about fan reaction, she wouldn't have been the main guest on stage at the Episode IX panel.
And the vanity fair interview that you are waiving off, is one of the SW marketing machine's biggest pushes. they have done one for every release and use that as a spring board to release story and production details in the dead time between the first teaser and the big marketing push pre-release.
Kennedy and Iger have definitely had their disagreements. And they have butted heads over the direction of the franchise since pretty much right after she was put in charge. But to say that they are hiding her is pure wish fulfillment theorizing using cherry picked facts.
