‘The Mandalorian’ Star Jake Cannavale Disses ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’

The Mandalorian star Jake Cannavale isn’t a big fan of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hit cinemas this weekend and has been a general mixed bag for critics and audiences. Just like every Star Wars movie, the latest film in the Skywalker saga has been excessively divisive, pinning all sorts of fans against each other. While us general audience members are privileged enough to speak our mind over Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, it’s quite unlikely that we’ll hear anything negative spew out of the mouths of stars like Daisy Ridley or Adam Driver… at least for now.

One Star Wars actor, however, has no issue in dissing The Rise of Skywalker on the day of its release. Jake Cannavale, who played a would-be bounty hunter in the fifth episode of The Mandalorian, took to Instagram to voice his negative opinion on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, calling it “hands down the worst Star Wars movie. An absolute f—–g failure.” On the social media platform, Jake Cannavale was asked how he would feel if he was apart of the new Star Wars trilogy, which certainly carries a heavy amount of baggage when compared to The Mandalorian, which has been a runaway hit.

Here’s what The Mandalorian star Jake Cannavale had to say regarding Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker:

“Honestly, I think I’d be more mad. Obviously I can’t speak on behalf of the cast. To some actors this is just a job and maybe they’re just happy to be working. To which I say more power to them. Also, maybe they f-cking loved the new Star Wars! In which case that’s f-cking dope that they got to work on something they truly got to enjoy. 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!” 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-cking stoked…but still.)”

One might fear for Jake Cannavale’s future in the Star Wars franchise, but his appearance in The Mandalorian, without getting into spoilers, was brief in nature. In this day and age where actors seem to be able to barely voice their opinion, it’s refreshing to see someone like The Mandalorian star Jake Cannavale be so open and candid about the biggest movie of the year.

Some of the concerns and issues that The Mandalorian star Jake Cannavale brought up seem to be recurring ones from a variety of fans who saw Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker this weekend. Most fans agreed that the film was hastily written and edited and didn’t mesh well with the overall narrative set up by the original Star Wars films. Unfortunately for those fans, The Rise of Skywalker is expected to be a box-office hit, even if it isn’t the critical success that Disney wanted.
