Long ago at a studio not so far away, this bloggette told the world that it only makes sense for the ultimate War of the Stars to set up shop right here in the New Mexico desert.
The Disney acquired Lucasfilm franchise has already proclaimed that three Star Wars installments are in the offing. Now where better than NM, an established Disney friendly backdrop, to put down roots?
The original home to Tatooine is rapidly disappearing and Tamalewood has served Disney companies (ABC Family, Disney Channel, Marvel) very well for many previous productions.
For decades New Mexico has quietly been a hot spot for film location scouting. Now more than ever locals are becoming aware of the very real and growing presence of the global film industry right here in The Land of Enchantment.
As the Winter/Spring 2014 production start approaches for Star Wars Episode VII, eyes and mouseears all over the world will once again turn to NM. Confirmation that New Mexico will play host to the film is inching ever nearer.
Personally, I like what Disney has done with their purchase of New York City…ABC is doing quite well, and I have no doubt that if a port for Disney Cruise Lines in New Mexico would suit them, the Walt Disney Company could pull it off!
I have long been awaiting a sizable investment in the Land of Enchantment by the multinational mass media conglomerate. After all we have seen them here, from the Avengers to The Lone Ranger, Disney has built it and COME!
With the recent purchase of all things Lucas how long will it be until we’re all suited-up in our Storm Trooper best? Hell, most of us are replete with prêt-à-porter Tatooine garb!
We’ve also got no shortage of Fanbois and girls (both domestic and imported)! From our ever growing and increasingly acclaimed Comic & Sci-fi Conventions to the long lived lore of being the birthplace of the Alien Autopsy, we are proudly geekcentric!
Now that the rumblings have begun, via the firstname.lastname@example.org, that the Imperial scout-abouts have landed in NM, every Star Warsophile should sit-up and take notice!
Don’t blow this one Susana…
