The Force Will Continue to be With Luke Skywalker

Now that a historic election is over, the news cycle has wasted no time in getting back to dumb stuff. Case in point, it looks like the new Star Wars movie is going to be about Luke Skywalker. What a relief. No doubt, Star Wars nerds the world over were spending sleepless nights fearing they'd have to cheer for some total stranger in the new Star Wars movie, but that is not to be the case. Now, whether they'll be cheering on a geriatric Mark Hamil or some pretender remains up in the air, so if you're a blonde, wild-eyed, slightly whiny but still Force-gifted aspiring actor, now would be a good time to be sending headshots to Disney ...

I hope they just use the same technology that brought Orville Redenbacher back to life:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

(Actually, it didn't really bring him back to life. It's CGI. Bet you couldn't even tell.)

I'll bet Mark Hammil did a force-inspired back flip when he found out!

Ahhh. This is horrible. As a huge Star Wars fan and a big Old Republic gamer this is bad. There are endless stories and books that takes us into more interesting and better scripted corners of the Star Wars universe. Not once has Lucas ever tried to do something different. I have read some of the books. They are perfect for our generation, dark, scary, good, evil. Like Dexter or Breaking Bad story wise. Why can't Lucas/Disney get their head together....oh I forgot...MONEY.
