If I recall the review was fairly cynical, pointing out that Alec Guiness had died in the first film but continued fading in and out like "bad TV reception." And I think he closed with calculating how much a ninth film would cost based on the doubling of Empire's budget over SW's.
So will we be seeing Ewan MacGregor appear as the spirit of Obi-Wan in the third trilogy, guiding Luke in his job as the Master of the New Jedi Order?
