—wa—wait. The reason that J.J. Abrams is jumping aboard Episode VII writing duties with Larry Kasdan is because they’re throwing out Uncle George’s shitty outline? Well, why didn’t you fucking say so? If that’s true, I’m all aboard. In fact, I’m the conductor of that fucking train.
Forget the Force being strong with me, I need to get down with the Uzay. Such is the name of a line of Star Wars action figure knock-offs rolled out in the late 1980s in Turkey. As far as I’m concerned, the Turkish masterminds behind this line of figures were simply cleaning up lore, and elaborating on obvious concepts. Or losing their goddamn minds.
It’s disheartening to know that for every level-headed dude or dudette I come across here at OL or across the internet, there’s an insane amount of sycophantic Lucas ass-worshippers. I know a good amount of people who swore off buying the the Star Wars Blu-Rays because a) three of the movies were garbage and b) the changes to The Trilogy were unacceptable.
It appears we’re in the minority.
