So here’s the story: Dark Horse Comics has the old, first draft of “The Star Wars.” Instead of doing what George Lucas did, scrapping the whole thing and letting other people make a better version of it, some folks are gonna make it into a comic book.
I get reading it for laughs. Kinda like when I make people leave voice mails because Google Voice transcription is hilarious. Reading aloud a broken speech like the original Star Wars script must be an awesome feat, like getting drunk and doing a madlib and not using the word “fart” for all the nouns.
And of course they won’t make it into a movie. That’s too much money for even Disney to shit the bed with, what with the previous three craptastics and the upcoming hopefuls on deck.
So why don’t we make a movie of this aged, broken peice of pulp and ink shat out by a George Lucas on the hunt for a cash cow right behind his buddy Speilberg?
I get it. Money. It’s awesome and by putting “The Star Wars” into comic form you are printing money.
But I really hope someone feels kinda bad for essentially doing a storyboard for a failed idea that begat a better idea.
