One 7-year-old boy has succeeded where legions of fans have failed: he has persuaded George Lucas to change his vision for Star Wars.

Colin, a young Star Wars fan, hopes to become a Jedi Knight when he’s older, but he also wants to get married and start a family—something forbidden by the Jedi Order, according to Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith. Probably dissatisfied with his parents’ guidance to “just become a new kind of Jedi” or to “stop watching those prequels and watch the real Star Wars,” Colin went straight to the source with a succinct letter to Lucasfilm:

So, there you have it. Jedi can marry now, which is a whole new problem for bakeries in Indiana. And since Colin now appears to be the official fan ambassador to the Lucasfilm System, maybe he can send another request for the unaltered editions of the original trilogy on Blu-ray, which are being held prisoner for reasons that are boring and probably have something to do with CGI. If Lucasfilm says no, at least Colin will get more free stuff.
