Before you start reading this, I’d like you to pull up the Star Wars soundtrack and start playing it from the beginning.
If you did that, you should be listening to the drums and fanfare right now. I believe that should set the mood properly.
A few hours ago in a press room far, far away…
Star Wars: Episode 7
It is a period of anticipation and waiting.
Disney, having purchased the rights to Star Wars,
Has announced that there will be new movies, sequels to
the original trilogy.
In spite of concerns after the prequels, fans have remained optimistic
Word soon came that Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo would be returning
With them would come characters new and old alike.
Among the new, we have Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac
John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, Domhnal Gleeson,
And Max von Sydow, though their parts are unknown.
With J.J. Abrams directing, and a screenplay by him and Lawrence Kasdan,
Fans are waiting on the edges of their seats for more news.
However, there is trouble in the world of Star Wars.
Continuity has been struck!
All the expanded universe has been thrown out of continuity,
Leaving naught but the movies and “The Clone Wars” as canon.
Some fans are outraged, others accept it as inevitable.
But this frees up the new movies to take their own course.
Episode VII will hit theaters on the 18th of December in 2015.
May the Force be with us all…
