D23 is in full swing, and the news has been coming fast and furious. There’s a lot of news coming out, most of it around Marvel and all of it making me scream for joy and do fist bumps for reasons that only seem to confuse my family… but this one was too important to really wait on.
This trailer doesn’t tell us much, but it looks very Star Wars, while at the same time apparently using the Firefly ship designs that Disney now also owns (seriously, I saw that and thought of the Serenity). Still, it’s so hard to watch this and not be excited. One has to assume most of the characters we saw in more than background glances have some connection to the overall story, and I look forward to getting to know them.
I don’t like the a la carte streaming future we’re staring down, where we’re going to be carrying a half-dozen different subscriptions each month to watch all the stuff being made… but Disney seems to be just going to every end to make sure their service is worth your money. In short, it’s a great time to be a fan of genre shows… and it’s going to cost us.
