Today has been a REALLY big day for Star Wars news.
The first thing is George Takei has announced today, via his Facebook page, that he will be starring in the new Star Wars reboot, which will be directed by JJ Abrams. (Coincidence that George Takei and Mark Hamill just starred together on an episode of The Neighbors? I think not.) He will be playing Master Ceti Maru, a member of the Jedi High Council.
And the official name, as of now, for the next Star Wars film will be Star Wars: Galactic Empire!!! It will begin filming “sometime early next year”, as posted by George Takei.
I was pretty excited to know that Mr. Takei was joining the film (I hope that their won’t be anymore Star Wars vs Star Trek debates anymore after this), but just finding out the name for the next movie made me squeal with joy. I know it’s a long ways from here, but I was just too excited about this today!
