How STAR WARS can get back to it’s indie roots, or a boy can dream, can’t he?

‘With great power comes great responsibility.’

There are sequels and prequels and ‘stand alone’ plans, Han Solo origin story anyone? Certainly, we will have Star Wars films for years to come. That’s the good news.

The bad news?

Well, they’re all going to be giant tent pole films. Don’t get me wrong; I love a good CGI extravaganza as much as the next guy but isn’t it possible the fans could burn out on event after event? It seems to be working fine for Marvel (also acquired by Disney) and for Transformers, though the latter has a multi-year break between pictures.
