Another episode of The Acolyte, another controversy.

After episode three of Disney's prequel Star Wars series drew the ire of some fans for introducing so-called "Force Babies," episode four has purportedly led to the sending of death threats to editors of WookieePedia after they updated the fan-run Star Wars wiki to reflect a change The Acolyte made to the canon.

No death threats allowed

The controversy surrounds a Jedi named Ki-Adi-Mundi, a phallic-headed fellow perhaps best known for saying "What about the droid attack on the Wookiees?" in Star Wars: Episode III and pointing out the Sith had been extinct for a millennium right as the Sith were coming back. He appears in episode four during a brief interrogation scene.

Canonically, Ki-Adi-Mundi was born in 93 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin), while The Acolyte takes place in 132 BBY. Mundi appearing in The Acolyte should be impossible, but the show appears to have fudged the canon a bit to have Star Wars' famous fuddy-duddy once again be the bureaucratic voice casting doubt on the events taking place in the show.

Some Star Wars fans have not taken kindly to Disney once again taking a liberty with the canon.

They were even less kind with Wookieepedia altering their information to reflect the new canon for Ki-Adi-Mundi.

According to some WookieePedia editors, they have received death threats for altering the site to reflect the canon presented by The Acolyte.

This has in turn led "#WeStandWithWookieePedia" to emerge as a hashtag to show support for the editors, while others are dunking on Star Wars fans making a mountain out of a background character's birthday.

I do think there is some real criticism to be levied at The Acolyte in terms of storytelling and pacing, (I don't find it as terrible as the haters seem to, but I think it's just been "eh its sort of okay" which isn't what I had hoped it would be).

But, if the idea that a minor character whose birthday was established in… checks notes trading cards and $15 reference books you bought at a Scholastic Book Fair as a kid now has a different birthday due to a three second cameo ruins your day and is "THE VERY DEATH OF STAR WARS," then please turn off the computer right now and go touch some grass. Or watch this Animaniacs clip at least: https://youtu.be/lNJ6dFwh8a4?si=-cp68TOL2xffTB9D

The worst thing about Star Wars is it is hard to find any solid real adult criticism about it at all. It is either "DiSnEy Has RuiNEd My cHILdHOoD tHeY MadE iT wOKe" guys who get all their news from weird YouTubers, or it is all fans who eat up everything with such an attitude of "consoom" they don't bother to think about it all and just digest it in a vegetative state. I almost think we need to perform a necromancy ritual on Roger Ebert to get some real old school critique on Star Wars that isn't tied to all the ways the internet has made navigating fandoms in 2024 so painful.
