Are you a cynical Star Wars fan who thinks everything has sucked since Empire, but you keep watching all the new stuff anyway in the futile hope of feeling like a kid again? Or have you remained a kid at heart who still feels joy at the possibilities of new journeys to the galaxy far, far away? In either case, I got you covered today.
CYNICS – this is the third in a series but it’s pretty self-explanatory: Harrison Ford is negotiating his new deal, and the Ford impersonation is pretty dead-on.
OPTIMISTS – Here’s how three elementary school kids (and one adult helper) imagine Episode VII might be like. They’re too young to have thought about stuff like lens flares, and filter it all through a playground perspective.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
