We all love Star Wars, except for those of us who don’t love Star Wars. One thing all Star Wars fans can agree on is that Lucasfilm made a complete hash of the Special Editions in 1997, which felt like George Lucas experimenting (badly) with CGI in preparation for the Star Wars prequels. And we all know how they turned out.
THR have announced more conjecture on Star Wars. SHOCKING!
It’s been a big ole week for film news, thanks to Disney’s decision to unburden George Lucas from the rights to Star Wars. The House of Mouse rocked the film world with its $4.2billion buy-out of Lucasfilm, promising that three new Star Wars films would be on the way, with the first one already in production and due some time in 2015. While there’s every possibility that the new films will be every bit as awful as the prequel trilogy, we’re trying to be optimistic about things. In the meantime, why not grab a drink and revisit the original trilogy with us in our Star Wars drinking game!
Film classification has come a long way since a Birth of a Nation was banned in several American cities in 1915. However, with recent decisions bringing censorship back into the spotlight, it begs the question of whether it’s still relevant or tenable in its current form.
The Star Wars franchise is an interesting one. It usually always finds itself divided into its Original and Prequel series, such is the divergence of opinion as to their relative worth. But which is better? Are Episodes I, II and III a far more slick and thoughtful offering, or are Episodes IV, V and VI unsurpassed in their grandeur? Let the Friday Face/Off commence.
