... Lucas remains as "creative consultant" .....

... That's not good.

... Who wrote and directed Hell-Raiser? That would be a good movie if they did Star Wars 7.

Most Star Wars fans like Episode 4 and 5, and think Return of the Jedi was good, but a bit disappointing. Then, they generally write off the new movies and the animated Clone Wars.

So, if you only really like 2 of the 7 Star Wars movies, it's tough to really call yourself a fan.


Can I call myself a Matrix fan despite loathing 2 out of the 3 movies?


Not really, unfortunately. You just like the Matrix.

Have that as compensation.

If I enjoy half of a band's albums, am I a 50% fan? Or not a fan at all? Or am I fan?

... Or am I fan?

Fair enough, may as well leave a link to the red letter review of episode one on the off chance someone has been unfortunate enough not to see it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxKtZmQgxrI

Yeah, I could have done a proper link, or a youtube thingy, but I think we're all burned out on Star Wars. I can't be bothered.

I've read some of the expanded universe books. I like Zahn's the best, but I wonder if Thrawn and C'Bouth and the rest would work in a movie. I feel like the story is not movie-esque enough. And the other novels just weren't that good.

The universe is rich enough or can be rich enough for additional stories. I would like to see that.

... Chewie gets whacked in one of the expanded universe books, by an author named Salvatore.

... (Salvatore wrote the book, didn't whack Chewie in the story).

I love Star Wars... to me it's the absolute best Sci-Fi series/universe of all time.

That said... I agree Lucas has done a lot of stoopid shit. To name 3...
1) Ewoks
2) Jar Jar Binks
3) Midi-chlorians

Assuming Disney will f-up the universe is not appropriate.

They have done a good job with Pixar and Marvel. I see no logical reason why this will result in a bastardization of the SW Universe.

So the timing on this couldn't be better for us. We bought a Darth Vader mask for our daughter either last year or the one before. So I was supposed to wear it to the kid's school for their costume parade. We also had a set of mouskateer ears. So my avatar is me wearing said outfit.
