I grew up with Star Wars. I was 6 years old when the first movie came out and I collected every toy, saw Empire and Jedi opening day and for 16 years I waited for the prequels to come out. Suffice it to say, I was not happy with them. In fact they suck and I have very little desire to ever watch them again. Aside from Ewan McGreggor and Ian McDiarmid, I thought the whole cast sucked. To this day, I have a sour note on Star Wars because of how much of a let down they were to me. I had a similar feeling after Star Trek Nemesis came out, only compounded by how much I hated Star Trek Voyager. Enterprise started out promising, but quickly delved into depths which it never could recover. But in 2009 J.J. Abrams reminded me of why I loved Star Trek so much. With a new cast of characters who brought new life to fan favorites. It was exciting, it was fun, it was funny, and I cheered and applauded at the end. Could Episode VII do that for Star Wars? That's what I want to see from this project. Let's get back to the heart of what Star Wars is about, and it's not about the green screen and CGI. One of the many beauties of Abram's Star Trek, is that he shot it, using a great deal of old fashioned film making and practical effects, and REAL SETS. The whole "used universe" thing got thrown out the windows with the prequels. I hope they get back to the basics.
