Has Lucas really lost it this time?
While not DVD related just yet, I'm sure this will still interest some of you. Apparently, Lucasfilm have announced the official title for the next Star Wars film: Star Wars - Episode Two: Attack of the Clones.
What on Earth were they thinking? The Phantom Menace was bad enough, this is plain terrible. For those that are still interested, the premise as laid out on Starwars.com is as follows:
Ten years after the events of The Phantom Menace, not only has the galaxy undergone significant change, but so have our familiar heroes Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman) and Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) as they are thrown together again for the first time since the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo. Anakin has grown into the accomplished Jedi apprentice of Obi-Wan, who himself has transitioned from student to teacher. The two Jedi are assigned to protect Padmé whose life is threatened by a faction of political separatists. As relationships form and powerful forces collide, these heroes face choices that will impact not only their own fates, but the destiny of the Republic.
