Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall added his voice to a growing chorus that is dunking on Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy.
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.”
Judge Lee wrote, “Under the settlement, ConAgra agreed to refrain from marketing Wesson Oil as “100% Natural.” That sounds great, except that ConAgra already abandoned the strategy in 2017 — two years before the parties hammered out their agreement — for reasons it claims were unrelated to this or any other litigation.”
He continued, “Even worse, ConAgra’s promise not to use the phrase ‘100% Natural’ on Wesson Oil appears meaningless because ConAgra no longer owns Wesson Oil. In reality, this promise is about as meaningful and enduring as a proposal in the Final Rose ceremony on the Bachelor.”
“Simply put, Richardson — the new owner of Wesson Oil — can resume using the “100% Natural” label at any time it wishes, thereby depriving the class of any value theoretically afforded by the injunction. ConAgra thus essentially agreed not to do something over which it lacks the power to do,” Lee added.

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 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.”
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.”
The hits against the Disney Star Wars sequel trilogy keep coming. One has to wonder who will take the next shot. Who is your money on to take the next shot at Disney and their Star Wars sequel trilogy?
