    That's the pic that I saw, I think on Gizmodo, as an animated gif where they zoom in on his face with the caption "What have I done."

    Good catch, but in my defense, I assert that my use of "tights" is in the singular, as in, "How many tights am I wearing, you ask? Just one."

    Conversely, my father, who was a newspaper man, perversely maintained that the word "news" is plural, as in, "Are there any news?" :p

    Hah! You're, not "your", a chip off the old block! Very nice; I would have liked your Dad.

    And my nit was indeed a stretch.... and I was right in guessing you'd not pass on it, either! But I'd also not ask you, "How many tights is you wearing?", for several reasons.

    Looks like Disney doesn't get everything. Fox has distribution rights to New Hope in perpetuity, and the other original trilogy films until 2020. So Disney can't release a set with all of them without a deal with Fox.

    I don't know about anyone else but I do feel a little better about this since they've announced JJ Abrams involvement. Of course after they announced that they started talking about these "stand alone character movies" which brought me back to the whole "I'm not so sure about this" feeling. That being said I think a movie about Han Solo and some of his adventures as a younger man before the events of "A New Hope" could make for a pretty cool movie!

    The one and only issue I have with JJ is his affection for lens flare.

    Same here. He isn't letting up in Star Trek. There is no way it cold be as bad as Super 8 though, I hope.
