You hear that sound off in the distance? That’s the sound of Disney executives going crazy as buckets and buckets of cash pour down on them.

At least $175 million! Stop and think about how much money that is for a second. Just in case you thought people had given up on “Star Wars,” this report should end that speculation forever.

I’m excited for this movie. After several decades of buildup, the greatest saga ever put on film will finally get the conclusion we’ve all waited for.

Will it live up to the hype? I have no idea. Nobody really does. All I know for sure is that I’m juiced for it. If it’s even a fraction as good as the original trilogy, then I’ll be happy.
