apparently they are making a new trilogy of Star Wars movies. I used to love playing with my light sabre in the dark. but now I am concerned how will they pull it off? Isn't Princes Leia a drunk or in rehab these days? And surely they won't make her have that silly hair and what about Luke Skywalker, hardly the boy next door these days. I hear he has a new hip and gout. Surely it is better to leave it all be?
I don't really know Star Wars, I didn't like the look of it when they brought it out as I don't approve of people rampaging through the universe blowing up planets, saw I never watched it.
From a distance it seems to be a perfect example of making as much money as you can out of re-running the same story.
I am familiar with some of the original cast though and understand some of them might have fallen on hard times, so in the circumstances I think it would be better if they invested in a new cast.
I think Disney have bought the rights to the film\franchise, so perhaps the new films could star Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck?
Minnie Mouse could take the leading lady role of the Princess - doesn't Minnie wear a funny polka dot bow in her hair? This could be a contemporary take on the more traditional Princess Leia hair-do.
Not sure what a 'light sabre' is, is it that stick with a candle in it? I am sure they could build this into any re telling of the story, but if you saw the original, I suspect you might be a little old to be playing with such things now.
As you say, sometimes it is best to leave things in the past where they belong, I suspect this is one of those things.
