The Force Within Us, takes us deeper into the Star Wars experience than just the obsession of collectibles and costuming. Exploring how and why this epic saga has the ability to possess and alter lives, “The Force Within Us” centers on Star Wars as a catalyst for spiritual rebirth… finding personal meaning in life… and inspiring positive change. 

Film maker Cris Macht takes you on a journey revealing that Star Wars is more than just another sci-fi film to watch or convention to attend. It exposes personal connections that are developed through the sagas good versus evil storyline, and the hope that good ultimately triumphs in our world as well as in a galaxy far, far away. Also featured are thought provoking stories from Dave Dorman, Jimmy Mac, Adam Parr and Carl Cunningham (Authors of In A Galaxy not so far away – The Star Wars filming Location of the United States), Steve Sansweet, Robert Watts, Jeremy Bulloch, Paul Bateman, and Ashley Eckstein and how being a part of the phenomenon has changed their lives. Familiar Star Wars locations, like the Death Valley (Tatooine) and the Redwood Forest (Endor), add to the deep, emotional journey that is “The Force Within Us.”

Abrams to Direct Episode VII

jj_abrams_ep7_directorWill wonders never cease?  Each time we learn something new & significant about the forthcoming Sequel film(s), it seems as though things just keep getting better.  Now, to be sure, different people will have different opinions, but the general consensus seems to be that people are feeling very good about this announcement.  We agree.  If nothing else, this guy absolutely loves Star Wars, and in our book, that really counts for a lot.  Passion for the project is a must in this case.  We don’t need some detached hired gun at the helm, that’s for damned sure.  As with everything else, we’ll just have to wait & see, but the gut feeling is once again very good indeed.  Stay tuned, sports fans.  The plot continues to thicken…

Theatrical Release Timeline

Hey there, sports fans!  Among other things, we were tossing this topic around the other night.  We connected a few dots, threw in some sensible speculation, and ended up with what we think is a very probable, and very exciting timeline of the next few Star Wars theatrical releases.

First, obviously, are the Prequel 3-D installments:  EpI: TPM was released in Feb of this year.  Ep’s II & III were tentatively slated for Feb of 2013 & 2014, respectively.  Since the Disney transaction, however, those plans have been changed.  The updated plan sends the latter two 3-D Prequels into theatres in Sept & Oct of 2013, respectively.  Wow.

And although nothing’s yet carved in stone, our bottom-dollar bet is that the sequential 3-D releases of Ep’s IV through VI will be evenly distributed across the calendar in 2014.  Probably something along the lines of March – July – October.

And that sequential release of the 3-D Classic Trilogy in 2014, my friends, will dovetail quite nicely with the now-official 2015 release of Episode VII.  Anyone else getting excited yet?

It’ll be interesting to see how accurate this prediction turns out to be.  Nothing’s for sure yet, but all the available evidence certainly supports the theory.  That ought to be quite the experience, huh?  What do you think?  Share your thoughts with us via email at jedi@starwarsroadtrips.com and/or on the SWRT Forums here!  Stay tuned…

- Adam & Carl
