Can Star Wars be Good Again?

Star Wars JJ Abrams

Many of you are very familiar with the debacle that landed on the big screen in the form of the recent Star Wars prequels. All you had to see was a CGI Jar Jar Binks to know that the gritty, western space odyssey you knew and loved was long gone.

The ad agency Sincerely Truman created the above video to highlight 4 rules that JJ Abrams should follow in his attempt to resurrect the Star Wars franchise.

To sum up the video, the rules are as follows:

  1. The setting must take place in the frontier. Star Wars is a Sci-Fi Western, and the intrigue lies in the outskirts of the universe.
  2. The future is old — no shiny spaceships, metallic droids, etc. It must be gritty.
  3. The Force is mysterious. You don’t need to tell us how it works.
  4. “Star Wars” isn’t cute. This is where I think JJ Abrams will certainly excel. He turned Star Trek into a violent, cut throat universe and I think he can do the same for Star Wars.

Here’s hoping for the best!
