I've been thinking more about the Lucas Disney thing.
Several years ago, must have been about four or five, my daughter was really into Disney princesses, I guess she still is to a degree. She asked me which princess was my favorite, I cracked a grin and said "Leia". She didn't get it. I showed her Star Wars later.

I realized something when thinking about that. Disney is going to have to make a new "classic" cartoon with Leia as the princess. I don't know how I feel about this, the princess cartoons are genuinely among the best things Disney creates, and most of them are based on older stories. I don't see why they couldn't make one that could be either accepted or excluded from canon, but they'll have to play the valiant prince role very carefully. There can be a happy ending and "oops - he got blowed up with Alderaan" later on - probably not the best thing. Han Solo can already be part of the picture and she has to save him - I sort of like this idea - or he can save her - good chance of getting hokey.

What does everyone else think? I don't see how the whole princess movie thing can be avoided at this juncture, and face it, there's probably several dozen fan written scripts to chose from already.

If you'll recall that's a major part of how I wound up living in San Leon last time we met.
