In honor of Disney buying Star Wars I give you a post about lightsabers.  Pink ones at that.  Since Mace Windu had his purple one and the advent of different colored ones at the jedi academy in the expanded universe a pink one shouldn't be that far out there.  It's all gem based any ways and I know there are pink gems.  So rock the pink lightsaber with coordinating outfit.
As far as the Disney buyout of Star Wars.  Bring it on.  As mentioned many places before they can hardly do worse than the prequels.  I don't have any favorites for directors for the new movies but if John Lasseter or Brad Bird want to take a swing at it I wouldn't complain.  They've done well with the movies they directed and Star Wars really is a kids franchise anyways.

    I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one...for one main reason and one main reason only. There are MANY reasons why this is a terrible idea, but the biggest one that I can see...CASTING. Harrison Ford is 70, Mark Hamill is 61 and Carrie Fisher is 56. Obviously they can't have them playing Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa...but for a whole generation, multiple generations, even, they ARE those characters.


  2. I assume they'll cast someone else besides the original actors. Or they'll focus on a time period far enough removed from the original trilogy that they can have different main characters. As a counterpoint the Star Trek reboot had the same characters with different actors and it turned out well.
