THIS is what we should have seen as soon as John Carter's promotion began in 2011! George Lucas was in part inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom stories, by his own admittance, and in the wake of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' phenomenal success, a wonderful article on StarWars.com acknowledges the links between the two sagas.
Some will see in this a Disney attempt to sell more John Carter DVDs and BLU-RAYs, and why the hell not? The movie deserves it aplenty.
And is articles of this kind pop up in numbers, why not dreaming about seeing our sequels one day, maybe produced by none other than Lucasfilm?
