New Star Wars Movie: Good or Bad Idea?
With Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm comes an announcement of Star Wars: Episode VII, with an expected release in 2015.
It's a question nearly as old as the sci-fi genre: Should there be another Star Wars film?
Forbes reported that the deal includes $4.05 billion in cash and stock.
And do you think the new movies will dilute the captivating storyline from the first six films?
As a lifelong Star Wars fan, I couldn't be happier. I remember curling up on the couch during sick days from grade school to watch Luke Skywalker battle Darth Vader. And it was incredible watching the midnight release of The Phantom Menace while in middle school.
Now, I'll be able to share these experiences with a new generation of Star Wars fans.
But I know some fans disagree with me. They don't think a new movie should be created. George Lucas even dismissed the possibility as recently as March.
So, tell us, where do you stand after today's announcement? Are you excited or dismayed by the announcement of a new Star Wars movie?
