Doesn’t it take some of the fun out of OPENING DAY to know that the novelization of Star Wars, Episode Three: Revenge of the Sith is already available at your local bookstore?
By the way, for those keeping track, I’ve made it this far without hearing any spoilers (beyond the obvious central character transformation). I’m getting closer and closer to having this be my first experience seeing a Star Wars movie without knowing the whole story ahead of time…
There was so much buzz when Return of the King came out about how the Academy was going to finally reward Peter Jackson for his overwhelming effort. And they did. You have to wonder if George Lucas is wondering whether or not the Academy will make a similar gesture to him for his trilogy. And of course they won’t, for one simple reason: Peter Jackson can do everything Lucas can do, AND all of the things he can’t–like direct actors and film a scene with a real New Zealand backdrop instead of just a blue screen.
Still, I am looking forward to this.
