'The Mandalorian' Actor Jake Cannavale Slams 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker'

The Mandalorian actor Jake Cannavale is sharing his thoughts about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

The 24-year-old actor may have just joined the Star Wars universe, but he’s not holding back on his critique of the new movie.

Jake took to his Instagram to share that he thought The Rise of Skywalker was an “absolute f**king failure” and was “still mad” the morning after seeing the film. He elaborated on his thoughts when a fan asked if would still be mad if he had been in the movie.

“Honestly, I think I’d be more mad…Personally, I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan since I was a kid. And I felt pretty let down by the overall laziness of this new trilogy, and also a bit angry at the entitlement of it for pretty much seizing control of the franchise as a whole by basically [saying] ‘Nah we don’t like the ending that everybody’s been cool with for decades, let’s change it!’” Jake wrote (via Screenrant).

He continued, “I personally would feel pretty depressed if I was in the new Star Wars movie (as a main character I mean. If I was a dude wearing an alien puppet or whatever I’d be f**king stoked…but still.)”
