And There Came Too Much Of A Good Thing – Are There Too Many New Star Wars Movies On The Way?

My good friend The Junior Senator writes in his latest post on his excellent blog The Socratic Review that the upcoming onslaught of Star Wars movies represents a significant departure from the past and may, in fact, be too much of a good thing. It’s hard to argue with his perspective, though a too easy out is to say “as long as the new movies are good, that’s fine, right?”

Much like The Junior Senator, I too recall when it was very difficult to see a Star Wars movie, when the invigorating power of imagination was all I had to keep the stories of Han, Luke and Leia alive. Between the releases of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, I even mounted my own novelization of Empire. It was really, really good. Watch out, Alan Dean Foster!
