So it was announced that Disney bought Lucasfilm and plan to make a Star Wars Trilogy sequal. It is to follow Luke, Leia, and Han after the last film in the francise Return of the Jedi. Now a lot of people have voiced being upset about this. I imagine it is those same people who gave George Lucas crap about Jar Jar Binks in the prequals and who gave him crap about adding scenes to the originals and releasing them.
Personally I enjoyed the prequals and that final battle between Anakin and Obi-Wan and seeing how he became Darth Vader was totally awesome to me. I also thoroughly enjoyed the additional scenes in the original movies as well. I have been saying for years I wanted to see what happened after Return of the Jedi and now I will finally get to. For me this is an awesome deal. It’s an opportunity to see new villians, new charactors, and continue the story of a wonderous world created when I was a child.
I love these characters and the story and could watch as many movies as they wanted to make from them. So I say thumbs up to the new movies. I have seen all 6 in the theaters and you better believe I will see the next 3 in the theaters as well.
Here is a video put out by Disney introducing Star Wars to their franchise.
