JJ Abrams better not muff up Star Wars, lest the entire geek community put a Boba Fett-bounty on his head. No one hates like die hard fans (remember Bat-Fleck?), and forums and nerd communities are already on fire with potential ways the series can be (re) ruined. One ambitious advertising agency, obviously employing many a Star Wars fan, has decided to not simply vent worries, but create a video-letter, addressed to Mr. Abrams himself, on how to make Star Wars great again. See Sincerely Truman's four rules for JJ Abrams below.


In summation: make Star Wars gritty again. As explained in the video's proposed 4 rules.

Rule #1: The Setting is the Frontier = less cities, more crazy wastelands and planets

Rule #2: The Future is Old = make it actually look like 'a long, long time ago'

Rule #3: The Force is Mysterious = we don't need scientific explanations, just more force-lightning

Rule #4: Star Wars isn't Cute = more gore, less Jar Jar Binks

Combined with the video is an online petition, via website Dear J.J. Abrams, which will be hand delivered to Disney execs if it reaches a million signatures. Show your Star Wars support.
