Week one-sixty-sixy of Operation Graphite – theme: The Force Awakens.

After handing over the keys to Lucasfilm, George Lucas relinquished all ties to the franchise he made famous. Perhaps like after the passing of Michael Jackson, where everyone tries to ignore everything after the 80’s; maybe in time the Prequels will be forgotten, and when thinking of Lucas, people will only think of the first trilogy.

As for, The Force Awakens, Lucas has had no input, and doesn’t even know the story. For him, he will be able to go and see an official film set in his universe that he didn’t have to toil over. He can simply enjoy it as part of the audience for once. Perhaps he will be over joyed, seeing his creations given new life. Perhaps he will disapprove, regretting his relinquishing control. I have a hunch he’ll be pleased with the new films, as least some of them. Now that Disney is churning out a new films as often as possible, I’m sure there will be a few disasters. You never know, they might even try another holiday special.
