George Lucas’s last prequel Revenge of the Sith seemed to kill off whatever enthusiasm was left for the much-loved franchise and the prospect of another tedious swish of the light saber makes you want to turn to the dark side.

However, it may not be all bad news. After all, with Lucas Arts now in the hands of Mickey Mouse and co, the big boss is highly unlikely to have much input into the new films.
