Meesa can't wait for this version!

It's kind of a bummer that George Lucas, the groundbreaking filmmaker who enriched our collective childhood with one of the greatest adventure sagas of all time, is also the person credited with trying to destroy it. On the one hand, I'm still in awe of what he did with two-and-a-half of the films in the original trilogy. But on the other... Man, am I happy that he doesn't get to tinker with the upcoming ones. I'll take J.J. Abrams' excessive lens flares over Lucas' cartoony monster slapstick any day.
