"Sure I don't have a resume to speak of and I have a history of creating great beginnings, crappy endings, and barely-there middles, but that's why you have a TEAM of writers, right?"
Clearly, I'm crazy in the wee hours.
|Mark Hamill, the original Luke|
See, my husband's love of Star Wars is rivaled only by his love of Star Trek and his disdain for Lucas. With the creator out of the picture, I can stop hearing about how great the books were without his interference or the many, many ways in which he screwed up the "first" three movies. Perhaps even I, a fangirl** in my own right, will be able to stop holding myself back from violence at the mention of midichlorians because no one will ever mention them again.
Disney also owns ABC, so in addition to feature films, I can fantasize about Star Wars mini series and Saturday morning cartoons. With a whole new generation of Jedi making names for themselves in the books, there's limitless material and a host of possible venues.
Disney, Lucasfilm, call me. I'll hook you up.
*None of that is really why I find the company creepy, it was just easier to find a quick link than expose my cyberpunk fear of megacorps.
**Yes, yes, I know I'm a grown woman, and I'm not likely to let anyone else forget it either. Fangirl just has a (totally incorrect) ring to it that I haven't been able to replace.
