Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi has been out less than a week, and fans are already involved in a civil war over whether or not it is any good.

While critics seem to love the film, everyday movie goers are outright sledging it as "worse than the prequels". On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a critic average review of 93%. But audience scores have pegged it at 55% satisfaction. It is the biggest discrepancy between critic and fan reviews in the entire Star Wars saga.

Now, one fan who really hates The Last Jedi has taken it upon himself to remove the film from Star Wars universe canon. Henry Walsh has launched a petition on titled "Have Disney strike Star Wars Episode VIII from the official canon." It has been signed 9,647 times at the time of writing.

"Star Wars has long been a story about two things, the Jedi and Luke Skywalker," Walsh writes. "Episode VIII was a travesty,. It completely destroyed the legacy of Luke Skywalker and the Jedi. It destroyed the very reasons most of us, as fans, like Star Wars."

Walsh then pleads with Disney to wipe The Last Jedi from Star Wars canon. "This can be fixed. Just as you wiped out 30 years of stories, we ask you to wipe out one more, The Last Jedi. Remove it from canon, push back Episode IX and re-make Episode Viii properly to redeem Luke Skywalker's legacy, integrity and character."

And if this recent poll is anything to go by, it is important to remember than fans like Jar Jar Binks more than Kylo Ren.
