  1. Say what you will about Lucas, but at least he didn’t treat Star Wars like a brood mare to breed to death for the next annual corporate report.

  2. That moment when you realize that Disney will put out a Star Wars or Marvel movie every month for the next ten years.

    • It isn’t unheard of. That’s what TV has been doing for decades, lately approaching the movie experience with more movie-like fx added of late.

      In that case, they should better make a (number of) series, where they can pour any number of hours of content they want per season and deliver one season religiously every year.

      Another advantage of the series format, is that any particular series can die due to lack of viewers (simple: if it fails to attract there are no more seasons) and the franchise can still go on.

      They only need to be careful trying to leave the series as self contained as they can, to avoid the annoying unresolved cliffhangers of classical TV.
