From an Evil Emperor to the Evil Empire

In an ever expanding effort to kill my childhood heroes, Lucasfim has released the cast list for the next installment in the Star Wars franchise. The newcomers to the series are all relative no names, all except the great mo-cap artist Andy Serkis, most know for his representation of Golem in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The cast is headed by the original trio Carrie Fisher (Leia), Mark Hamill (Luke), and Harrison Ford (Han) albeit much older and presumably less functionable.

Let’s hope that since the George Lucas is off the trilogy, now headed by Star Trek director J.J. Abrams, that he and Disney will work to recapture the magic that the originals captured and that the prequels sorely lacked.
