Duluth snubbed again as next Star Wars readies to film in London

Duluth snubbed again

I love the image, but I feel like I’m missing something.

Onion A.V. Club: Duluth snubbed yet again as the next Star Wars readies to film in London

Pinewood CEO Ivan Dunleavy made the announcement at the annual Confederation of Business Industry conference, boasting, “The seventh Star Wars movie just finished shooting at Pinewood. And I’m delighted to be able to tell you that a new Star Wars movie is already booked in.” His words were considered a direct affront to the fine people of Duluth, who have patiently waited decades for England to quit hogging all the Star Wars.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Dunleavy was referring to the first Star Wars spinoff, to be directed by Gareth Edwards, and not the follow-up to J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, But Not In Duluth, Because Fuck That Place.

The "Fargo" inspired comments are super offensive donchaknow.

All I want in life is a scene where an AT-AT gains some minimal sentience and the intelligence level of cattle and ends up dry humping Old Lifty. Is that too much to ask?

I'm somewhat of a mind with Mr. Praslowicz: I've always thought Ol' Lifty bore a strong resemblance to an AT-AT Walker; I've always hoped that someone with Photoshop skills could replace the Aerial Lift Bridge with an AT-AT. 

Make it happen, P.D.D. commentariat?

Is Happy Space ready to take on an AT-AT?

Star Wars?  Precisely NOT what Duluth requires.
