I now think I should not overlay my take on the film before you see it. Go and enjoy. We can discuss the film when it has finally left the cinemas in March.
In the meantime, let me just note this from Instapdundit: The ‘secret weapon’ behind Star Wars who was Marcia Lucas, George Lucas’s first wife, now departed from the scene and almost erased from history, who was the one with the judgement that made Star Wars work. Her personal story is quite incredible.
