Featurette: The Future of Star Wars Movies
Look, it’s really just way too early to tell. You’ll be reading all sorts of prognostications from all sorts of pundits, but there is no way to know for a fact what a movie (or movies) will be like until we actually see it. So, for fun, we’re going to rewatch that first video a few times, and every time it gets to the signing part we’re going to add a different, company-appropriate soundtrack. Maybe the Darth Vader theme – uh oh, this doesn’t look good. Then maybe “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from the Toy Story soundtrack – hey, they’re nice people at Disney, this is going to be just fine. See?
We’ll keep you posted…
