    The New Jedi Order members are now hiding their lightsabers under really tacky-looking large sombreros.

    People are bent on getting old school traditional effects. The gorilla at South of the Border is a man in an ape suit. It's practically like bringing back Charles Gemora.

    Yes, pronounced with a North Carolina Piedmont accent.

    I actually pronounce the "r" but I grew up in eastern NC.

    Well, based on what we've heard about the casting it looks like you're going to be seeing a lot of them. ;)

    If they want to stick to the way of things, expect all the bad guys to be British.

    British (and Australian) bad guys go over better because audiences are so familiar with it they don't even notice it. For some reason if another accent is used, there is a big ridiculous race-related debate. It happened with the Nemoidians and Watto. The alternative could be the "mean voice" like with General Grievous, Cobra Commander, Destro, Megatron.

    Why not have American bad guys?

    And plenty of movies use foreign villains, because real-life has them and films try to mirror it.
    James Bond often had Russian villains, and then later Korean ones. Die Hard has a German villain (played by a Brit).

    I meant "heaven". South of the Border is like something from a Rob Zombie film.
