Well it’s a bit of old news but in keeping with the recent Star Wars trend at Keith & the Movies I thought I would throw this out there. What are you thoughts on Disney’s confirmed plans to bring us new Star Wars movies? Now it shouldn’t surprise anyone. I mean they didn’t pay that much money to just sit on its current profitability. But there are several legitimate questions about these new episodes. Questions about the plot, questions about the cast, questions about the director.
Usually on Your Voices I try to have a definitive position. But I find myself torn on this one. I’m a Star Wars geek so the prospect of brand new movies really excites me. On the other hand, the franchise is now in new creative hands and there are chances that this could end up being a disaster. Is it a money grab? Will it flow well with the established continuity? Will it capture the spirit of the original films? There is plenty of material there for a great new direction. But there are also plenty of obstacles that could cause this to go terribly wrong.
What are your thoughts on the new Star Wars movies heading to theaters?
