As you guys probably heard by now the first movie, Star Wars 7, is scheduled for a 2015 release and will be directed by J.J. Abrams. So far, no details are known about the standalone movies but it does seem that Disney intends to recuperate the roughly 4 billion it paid to get the franchise quickly. I hope it won’t come at the cost of the franchises creative quality. Somehow I got this image of generic Star Wars movies akin to X-Men or that vampire franchise starring Kristen Stewart that I dare not name.
So far, the internet has been abuzz with suggestions from fans about what the standalone movies should be about. Most have mulled a Yoda centric movie as their fancy. I can’t really make up my mind about what I want. Somehow that moment when Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) looks at a double sunset to the music of John Williams is going to fade ever more into memory and nothing is ever going to supplant it.
