    So as it turns out, on May The 4th which is now Star Wars day, I guess, I watched Krull (1983) a film thats been called a Star Wars ripoff.

    Well that's a bit of a head scratcher.

    It does take place in "space" on a different planet abide it does two suns, but Krull (1983) is essentially an Adventure/Fantasy film like Willow (1988) and Dragonslayer (1981) but with more laser beams.

    I think Disney is making a terrible mistake by trying to virtually erase Song Of The South from existence.
    Is it racially insensitive? Of course it is.
