With Hollywood forever enthralled with possibilities of digital effects, reducing the age of actors (or bringing others back from the dead) firmly places us at a weird (hyperreal) crossroads.
Might seem an obvious point to make, but I believe Disney taking over the Star Wars universe has doomed it.
Morning! What happened while you were asleep? Well ISIS claimed responsibility for the Berlin attack, NSW Public Transport removed their rubbish festive vid and a things got slimy in Hollyweird.
For a dedicated set of Star Wars fans like myself, the films do not represent the appeal of the franchise. With Rogue One set in the Expanded Universe, I was wary.
Cynical toward the chances of Rogue One actually being decent? Well, good news for you I have, young Jedi. Search yourself, you know this to be true.
