Yeah there is something different this time.

The proponent of Star Wars 3.0 is a rather impressionable moron surrounded
by people who used to work for his daddy, then worked for the corporations
that lobbied hard to continue Star Wars (with only a relatively small
result), then (after a successful coup) returned to power to send the tax
dollars back to the corporations they once worked for.

Only problem is that there are no enemies to be shielded from.

Don't worry - they'll invent one.
