What I would really like to do is get Jar Jar Abrams and the heads of Disney Corporation in a small room and tell them what worthless pieces of Bantha Fodder they are. Yeah, then I would like to tell them where they can shove their new movie. For real Star Wars fans, you know that the events that took place after Return of the Jedi and even before The Phantom Menace, and even everywhere in between, have all been scribbled out in details in numerous books, comics and even television series. But apparently the powers that be at Disney are considering that massive body of work null-and-void as they plan on re-writting the entire Star Wars universe. I took this to even mean Timothy Zahn‘s Heir to the Empire trilogy, which I have a special place for in my heart. So just so everybody knows there will now be two Star Wars universes – the real one that has been their since the beginning, and the new one that Jar Jar Adrams and his cronies wrote. But I’m not bitter.
Yes, more news coming out of yesterdays selling of Lucasfilm to Disney. It would appear that not only is a Star Wars Episode VII already in the works, so is a TV show. Details are still few and far between, but some are speculating that if a new show is produced for prime time it could appear on Disney owned ABC. The show is said to be one where the story line is dominated by minor characters, such as bounty hunter Boba Fett. Lucas himself described the show as “soap opera” and “film noir,” which, if anything, makes me scratch my head. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Big news today…if you’re a Star Wars fan, which I am. It has been reported that Lucasfilm has been sold to Disney for a grand total of $4 billion. Immediately after the purchase Disney announced that a Star Wars VII was in the works for a tentative release date in 2015. How they plan to pull this off especially since Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and the rest of the crew are no longer spring chickens and will probably have no part in the next film, remains to be seen.
