I hope so, he's gone through so much to get that movie made.
Without seeing the legal documents, it's impossible to say what's actually going on. What we have is two different sides, both claiming they 'won'.
However, I have a strong suspicion that Branco's the one giving the accurate accounting here:
Involvement in filming has no bearing on IP rights. If I make my own version of The Last Jedi, Disney still owns the IP even though they'd have no involvement in my project or contractual relationship with me.
If it was only an issue of an $11,600 judgment, they'd just pay the money. What you'd be reading in the press wouldn't be an attempt to refute Branco's claims - you'd be reading an assurance that all legal claims had been settled.
3 different Courts in 2 different countries have already ruled in his favor, it's just stupid fans who do whatever they do anyways.
Hopefully in wrong but the trailer made me wonder why this is hyped other than the development hell
The rights issues may be resolved NOW, but it's entirely possible an elven curse is about to take effect.
There's been enough drama with this release that someone could probably make a movie out of it.
Wouldn't be the first time the 'making of' was better than the movie itself.
