With the rights for the Star Wars franchise now firmly in Disney’s hands and a new movie in the works, hundreds of us fanboys have been hoping and praying that, this time, finally, hopefully, our generation will have a trilogy that it can be proud of. Sure there are sceptics, people who have no faith in the House of Mouse and the team that our beloved franchise has been entrusted to, and at first I was one of them. But when Jj Abrams signed up as director I dared to hope.

Here was a man who created Lost, in my opinion, the greatest tv show of all time. And with this new found hope I started imagining. Imagining a Star Wars that I wanted. Imagining who I did and didn’t want to see, where I wanted to go and where I didn’t, and what I wanted to happen in this new chapter. »
