OK, like most others I was amazed by the news of Disney buying Lucasfilm and promising new Star Wars films, starting with Episode VII in 2015. Of course, it is possible that this will be a colossal disaster. But, for the most part, I don’t agree with those who criticise Episodes I-III, so I start with more hope for something good than most people. As it happens I have just finished watching the Season 4 Blu-ray of the animated Clone Wars series. If they can transplant some of the feel of that series into any new films then it is a good start. They are consistently good, fleshing out all sorts of the universe not covered by the films and, I guess until recently, only by the books and comics.
