[via StarWars.com] September 4, a.k.a. Force Friday — the highly-anticipated midnight release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys, collectibles, gadgets, and more — is almost here. It will be the world’s first chance to own official product celebrating the next installment of the Star Wars saga, and several retailers have, to quote Admiral Piett, “something special planned.” Check out StarWars.com’s special event guide below and may the Force (Friday) be with you!
Ever since it was first announced, Star Wars Episode VII has been a huge topic. There have been news, rumors and reports of actors being sought for roles in the upcoming film. Not just actors but big name actors. Now this is a far cry from the humble beginnings of the very first film. As a matter of fact this is diametrically opposed to the philosophy of that original production. Sure, Star Wars, now known as “A New Hope”, had two heavyweights to bring a bit of gravitas to the film by way of Sir Alec Guinness and Peter Cushing. Those two were not the whole film, they were icing on the cake. I fear that these new films will be all about the icing and not much cake. Star power seems to be the rule and not the exception. This worries me.
I am sure that the movies will be great. Well I am 72% sure 😉
I wonder if this was tweeted by R2?
Awesome news! The Empire Strikes Back was my favorite out of the six movies.
