Star Wars

Star Wars is one of the biggest franchises today. It has remained throughout many changes and shifts between LucasFilms’ many managers and, then, the change to Disney.  I, like many others, thought this would ruin the franchise, but not as badly as Lucas’ many reshoots (and a terrible Christmas special).

Disney is going to milk Star Wars for all that we hold dear.  The rumor is that Disney has planned a movie a year for the next twenty years.

“Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one, a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. …Hmm? On what he was doing.

~~ Yoda

I, like many people, was practically raised on Star Wars. So, we all wait expectantly for these next films!

I have been a bit disappointed in some parts of Star Wars.  It has; however, been treated much better by Disney than Lucas ever did.  Star Wars is the pure baby os the science fiction realm.  Others (like Stargate and Star Trek, for example) have been polluted and fans are irrevocably torn between love and hate.  Star Wars fans either loved Star Wars: The Force Awakens or were, for the most part, unmoved or unfeeling about the whole thing.  Rogue One brought back so much love for the original trilogy.

One thought on “Star Wars

  1. Absolutely agree. I tend to think Lucas lucked into a great story, and lucked into hiring great people when he shot the original movie. I watched a documentary about it – in desperation during editing, he handed the entire thing over to some talented newcomers, who did all the fast cuts in the action scenes, and essentially turned the film from utter garbage into the breathless journey we remember as kids in the cinema. The new movies are living and dying by the directors, cinematographers, and editing teams.
