    Great news. Now, if somebody would just hire James S.A. Corey to write them and we’d be all set!

    Okay, I’ll watch them ALL anyway, but still. That would kick ass.

    If they’re good, then it’s awesome news. I’m cautiously optimistic. . . .

    If I was the God King of movies I would prefer to see money spent elsewhere and let this universe die. Until my acolytes gets their act together, I’m sitting on the sidelines and hoping the Star Wars success or failure doesn’t choke out other promising sci-fi movies.

    I think Disney is about to take a huge shit. They may be impressed enough with themselves to yell, “come look at the size of this turd!” We will collectively shuffle in and look. Though we may be impressed with its size and splendor, a turd it will remain.

    Sorry but I don’t want to see an elderly Luke or Han the grandpa. Let it die and create something new and original. If I see another lightsabre fight — it was great in Star Wars, now extremely tedious.

    I’m not gonna see them, but there are always new kids coming of age where they discover the Universe, and it is FOR those kids that Disney is creating these vertically oriented product-distribution vehicles, umm, I mean, films.
