Escape to Witch Mountain

Star Wars 2015 in the Disney Universe

This is my reaction to the Disney purchase of Lucasfilms… I would so go to see this movie.

It is funny because I loved these old Disney movies. I even read the Escape from Witch Mountain novelization. I am not sure many remember The Cat from Outer Space, but I liked that so much at the time that I made a beaded collar for my cat Piewacket (I named her after the cat in my other favorite movie at the time, but spelled it wrong-no internet back then or DVDs) so she looked like the cat in the movie. She did not appreciate my efforts and had it torn up in a day (she was notorious for her rather irascible personality, being named after a witch’s cat was appropriate).

There are a lot of weird parallels between the Witch Mountain movies and Star Wars. They even have Christopher Lee in common…

I have done a lot of Star Wars art in the past for West End Games back in the 90s, too bad they did not have a Return from Witch Mountain module…
By the way, if you think the Bette Davis thing is a stretch, they are currently recreating dead actors digitally so who knows who will appear in these movies…
UPDATE: I saw these today on Design Taxi from the Conan show: http://designtaxi.com/news/354211/Disney-Star-Wars-Episode-7-Movie-Posters-Leaked/
