Disney has gone and bought Lucasfilm for a paltry $4+ billion, and they’re planning at least three new Star Wars movies. I’m not quite sure how to feel about that. On one hand, the original three Star Wars movies are probably my favourite SF/fantasy movies. On the other, the recent three “episodes” nearly ruined all that. I guess the main advantage is that Lucas is stepping away from the series and letting someone else look after it. The last time he did that we got Empire Strikes Back, which is the best movie in the series.
Maybe it won’t be a bad thing.
