I will let that news sink in for those of you hearing this for the first time.
Okay, I’m just thinking out loud here.
My first reaction was horror. I joked on twitter about “Herbie the Love Bug as R2D2 and “Lord Vader, we have received reports that the Apple Dumpling Gang is on the ice planet Hoth.”
But then I thought, “Who cares?” it’s not like Disney could do more to sully the franchise than Lucas already has. I mean, so what if Justin Timberlake plays Luke Skywalker and Johnny Depp plays C3P0? And what’s the big deal if Jar-Jar Binks gets his own sitcom on ABC?
