So, the news that Disney has bought Lucasfilms and announced EPISODE VII is giving me mixed emotions. This could either be brilliant, or a total catastrophe. I have been bouncing back and forth about this all day. This could refresh the franchise. It couldn't be any worse that what good ol' Georgie has done to it in recent history. I'm so nervous and am wringing my hands over something that hasn't even happened yet, and won't happen for years to come.
All I know is Star Wars just isn't the same without my first love, Han. I will maintain that is one of the reasons I disliked Episodes I-III so much. There weren't any characters that even compared to him! But I don't think having him return in Episode VII is a possibility. (At least it better not be--I'm sorry, but Harrison Ford playing Indiana Jones again about ruined all good childhood memories, please don't desecrate my memory of Han as well! On the same note, who else could play Han but Harrison??) I'm sure all this fretting is for nothing. I will probably end up loving it--Disney has really been surprising me lately.
Are there any other fellow nerds out there having super freak-outs about this that want to discuss? I'm dying.
