A Bunch of STAR WARS EPISODE VIII Predictions For ‘Ya

It’s fun to work with characters and environments that you’re already in love with, and it poses a creative challenge to predict plot developments for a story which you don’t fully know inside-and-out.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Beats AVATAR in ‘Murika – WOOO!

Excuse the rather juvenile headline, but this news is quite exciting.
