Holy mother of love.. not to really feel as if this is new or anything but I feel I haven’t talked very much Star Wars in a really long time. In fact it used to be my passion, heck I used to role play about it for years, I’ve seen all the movies in theaters, I’ve seen most of the cartoons they’ve put out for Clone Wars, I’ve read a few novels here and there and I have a small collection of lightsabers. To be honest I would say I’m a Star Wars fan.
So as we all know, a while back George Lucas sold the rights of Star Wars as well as his company Lucasfilm to Disney on October 30, 2012. I was pretty shocked and when I heard about it all the news about a 7th Star Wars film to follow Episode 6 was coming, a live-action TV show that Lucas as teased at for years after the release of Episode 3.
To be honest it’s now August of 2013, coming right up there in a few months Disney will haven owned Lucasfilm for a full year. I still just can’t believe it happened, I always looked up to Lucas as a filmmaker and I always believed that maybe one day I would do something as great as him. The only problem is he put more effort into his dream and I’m still not really pushing it.
Not at all trying to make this about me and my silly dreams but I just cane even imagine what a 7th Star Wars films would be like.. I mean are they going to make it rugged like the first Star War films where will they jump far into time? Will it be about the same characters only when they are older now? Most of them are pushing their late 50s now.
For god sake Harrison Ford is 71 years old, can you believe that? I think it’s amazing because he does look amazing for his age and I’d love to see him be Han Solo just one last time… I guess I can only wish and wait because we won’t even get to see anything for the film until 2015 and a lot can happen in that time when it comes to movies of this scale.
