Barry Norman, prophet and seer 

It really doesn't seem that long but I suppose it really has been 30 years since Star Wars graced our screens.

The BBC have published Barry Norman's comments from the time on their website. For any non-Brits reading this, Barry Norman is a celebrated film-critic who has been reviewing movies on British television since the Dawn Of Time.

What amused me were the final few strangely prophetic paragraphs of the article:

... the final scene leaves all the options open for a spectacular sequel.

As to that, Gary Kurtz the producer has assured me the sequel will not be made unless he and the director George Lucas are quite sure it can be as good as the original.

I only hope financial blandishments won't persuade them to change their minds and cut corners in search of the easy dollar.

Could someone send that to George Lucas and underline it in red?

It's a bit too late for that, isn't it?
