Re: More Star Wars films announced

Hmm. While part of me is thrilled at the possiblity of seeing Harrison Ford in a SW movie again.... I'm not sure I really want to see an elderly Han Solo....

But I still think the actual swordplay in the OT was pedestrian compared to what was possible.
I suppose it can be seen that way, but the thing I love so much about the OT lightsaber battles is you get a sense that those lightsabers had a real weight and power to them. And the energy was so much that you really did need two hands to control them.

The super-fast fights in the prequels were certainly dazzling, but the lightsabers suddenly looked about as powerful and dangerous as a glow stick, and seemed to have no weight to them whatsoever.
