That fan? The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, who tweeted earlier today, "Full disclosure: I've been obsessed with STAR WARS since the Disney announcement. I've been reading every rumor, I can't get enough."
"It got me to watch A NEW HOPE with my son again, and he loves Star Wars now. He was too young last time I tried. Now he's hooked," the creator continued, referring of course to the subtitle of the 1977 Star Wars.
He later added, "We're watching Clone Wars on Cartoon Network right now, he loves that too. Later today, Empire Strikes Back. He has no clue Darth [Vader] is Anakin. I'm shocked I haven't heard Genndy Tartakovsky come up in the director speculation. His Clone Wars cartoons were awesome. He'd be great!"
