This has to be some sort of sick joke…

First, this video describes my emotional state quite well right now.

Now why would I have Nerd Rage right now?  Well, the wife just sent me this:

The Walt Disney Company announced Tuesday it is acquiring Lucasfilm LTD and will produce a seventh “Star Wars” film, targeted to come out in 2015.

I’ve checked my calendar 15 times, it still doesn’t say April 1st on it, because honestly if this was I’d be laughing.  But don’t worry, it’s not just Episode VII coming out!

“Star Wars: Episode VII” is targeted for release in 2015, with Lucas serving as a creative consultant. More feature films are expected to continue the saga.

What The [email protected]#$ is left to tell!?  Seriously, you went back and told the story of the rise of the evil empire, which honestly lets admit it, could have been left to our imaginations.  George went and remastered the originals  screwing them to the point where he attempted to claim that Han didn’t shoot first.  We all know that’s a LIE.

Seriously how badly do they have to kill this series?  Seriously WTFO?!

    Michelle O did say that we needed to “change our history”.

    they can’t mess up the series any more than Lucas has. And, Han clearly shot first in the theatrical release of episode IV. the point is not debatable

      Oh yes they can. We just can’t fathom how horrible it will be yet. I was once naive and had faith like you… then Jar-Jar-Binks came along…

    IIRC the original plan was for 9 films. We can only hope that Disney will keep Lucas on a tight leash…
