The seventh movie in the sci-fi series is due to start production next year and is scheduled for release in 2015. Star Wars creator George Lucas sold his production company to Disney last year Filming on previous Star Wars also took place in Britain at studios including Elstree, Shepperton and Leavesden. Although the next sites have not been announced, this is great news for fans and creative industries.
I took a separate holiday to visit my father in Melbourne, my mother in Adelaide and my daughter in Queensland. I knew I wouldn't see them again. All three have since died as well as my brother-in-law. On the bright side, my younger sisters are alive and well.
My husband's mother also died during this time. He worked as a private hire driver and ferried many stars home in his car. I thought I'd share his letter with you. He'd write nightly tomes when he arrived home late and I was asleep already. I've saved them all in a special file were I chronicle my life.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such a wonderful wife: supportive, informative etc. but above all, a really true blue Stanley senior member. I really admire (but didn't mention it at the time, because of the grief) the way you took control at Mum's funeral. You were fantastic. Everyone noticed, especially me. Darling, in my life I rate you 100% and completely indispensible. We've gone through such bad times, but when I think about it all, how many couples in our age group have seen it, done it, experienced it! Not many. I really want you to be happy. You can never do wrong in my eyes. ...'
We'd married ten years before in our fifties and are now in our seventies. Not much has changed except we don't work so hard and we're together more.
And so, another Star Wars saga begins, leaving us behind. Life is change; you must bend like bamboo or snap in a sudden gust.
