This is the digital music choice of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as an iPod shuffle; an elegant device for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of the mp3 files of Napster. Before the dark times… before the RIAA lawsuits. Young padawan I present to you the Star Wars Light Saber Kei MP3 Player.
Can you believe it? I don’t. But I have a lot of hope and before now it has only been speculation on what is going on with the Star Wars universe. George Lucas has finally chimed in:
“[I’m] happy it’s so successful, and worked very well in 3 D,” Lucas told Access Hollywood at Sunday’s Golden Globes after party. “Haven’t been a big fan of 3 D, but that movie definitely improves in (the field of) 3 D.”
Lucas added, “We’ve been looking for years and years and years of trying to take Star Wars and put it in 3 D … But, [the] technology hasn’t been there. We’ve been struggling with it, but I think this will be a new impetus to make that happen.”
SWEET!!! Finally word from someone else other then the secretary at Skywalker Ranch. We get word from Lucas himself.
The next question off course is what direction could the new ‘Star Wars’ franchise take off on? Will it be the Grand Admiral Thrawn stories written by Timothy Zahn? Or will it be focused on events that happen after all the books that have already been written? Or will Lucas just decide to convert the first 6 episodes into 3 D and attempt to shove it down the populations throat,,, again? Let’s hope not. Bring on 7, 8, and 9!!! Re cast the characters if you have to! Go with what your good at.
So slap your Grandma and get in line, I think were in for a hell of a ride. Stay tuned for further developments.
