"Nut up, Disney." Indeed.

Nut up, Disney. Live a little. So what it gets a little "dark." Tinker Bell will be just fine.
Rogue One however looked to be the darkest in look and tone except save for Revenge of the Sith.
As for reshoots, fairly common. It is just news and blown out of proportion now. This is really a non-story I think. The teaser looks good and that is all we can go by right now.

“The goal of the reshoots will be to lighten the mood, bring some levity into the story and restore a sense of fun to the adventure.” More Details Have Been Revealed About Those*Rogue One Reshoots

This is concerning.

I have been a huge STAR WARS nerd since 1977, and not only am I okay with future STAR WARS movies and TV shows trying for different tones, I want it. Not every STAR WARS movie ought to feel just like the last STAR WARS movie. You can have dozens of varieties of flavor in a burrito, yet still remain essentially a burrito. "Lighten the mood" in studiospeak generally means, "Sell more Happy Meals."

Everyone loves the Mouse, but people have to realize the Mouse loves their wallets.

Yes but Star Wars as a brand STILL prints money. This movie however is a risk in that it is the first of the anthology/"story" movies that are within the universe yet not in the episodes.

I don't think it's that much of a risk, especially if the time setting is one in which Darth Vader is walking around, crushing larynxes with his Force mastery. Because, yes, Star Wars is a brand. Now, if they want to replicate TFA's numbers, no way. They need to realize not everything is going to perform that well. For that reason, they shouldn't feel compelled to dilute everything. Many of us are interested in the darker side of the Star Wars storyverse. If the Mouse won't give us that, I may not give them any more of my dollars.

I'm not necessarily craving STAR WARS to "go dark." Heroism and the triumph over evil is one of the main ingredients of STAR WARS. But I would love to see some of the storylines grow up a bit. Not every movie has to cater to 10 year olds. Someday, I'd love to watch a STAR WARS movie that at least tries to take a few steps toward adult sensibilities. Something closer in tone to THE TERMINATOR rather than THE LITTLE MERMAID.

Going darker doesn't mean those elements go away. It just means, as you obviously agree, that things can lean toward The Punisher, not Ferngully.

The Punisher meets Fern Gully? Pretty sure I saw that movie. Didn't like it much.
