‘N Sync cameo in Star Wars: Ep. 2 confirmed. Excuse me, I’m going to go burn my Queen Amidala costume.

I see … so they will play extras who get killed, like the bearded guy in the first one. I kinda like the idea of watching an NSync kid bite the dust.

I’ve thought about it some more, and I’m still of two minds. On one hand, I’m a bit of a fangirl. I’ve got the videos, I’ve got the board games, I’ve got the costumes. It annoys me that Lucas doesn’t take the movies as seriously as I do.
On the other, fanboys (the REALLY obsessive ones) annoy me, and I do think that despite our reverence for the movies, they belong to Lucas and he can do whatever the hell he wants with them. That’s why I almost find the ‘N Sync thing kinda funny. It’s almost as if Lucas is giving a big “F You!” to the psychos. He’s like, “You thought Jar Jar was bad? Check this out!” I mean, several people have remarked that Star Wars made Lucas the only financially independent director in Hollywood, at the same time it chained him to the series forever. I almost don’t blame him. I’d be sick of it if I’d worked on it for twenty years too.
That still doesn’t mean I wanna pay $8 to see Justin Timberlake as a Jedi, even if he does bite it.

I can live with NSync being in the background and getting killed off, but what worries me is the possibility that Lucas might just be softening us up for more of the same in the Episode 3. Perhaps they’ll do an updated version of the Mos Eisley cantina scene, only with Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera leading the house band and doing a big dance number…
