A nice mix of familiar, yet not over-exposed young faces. The kid in me can’t help but get a little excited, even if I know better.

Part of me thinks that I should get excited, but the prequels have left a bad enough taste in my mouth, as well over saturation of questionable Star Wars licensing and material, that I’m just slightly curious. I’ll have to see how it all works out, but perhaps without Lucas these new movies have a chance.

I was hoping beyond hope that the post was just a picture of stars.


I’m not so jaded that I don’t get excited for Fisher, Ford and Hamill. In fact, I’d say I’m excited.

The Exorcist is in Star Wars? Not that strange given that Lucas put a bunch of Hammer Horror actors in the OT.

Sidenote. Those Hammer Horror films must be loved by directors. Lucas, Burton, and Peter Jackson all use Lee and Cushing. I’m not that familiar with Hammer, but the love for those movies is obvious.
