We reached out to Nancy Cooper about the letter that Ron Howard wrote to her...

The Letter
Everyone has been talking about the letter (now forever referred to as The Letter) and I saw there had been thousands of comments and likes and social media shares but nothing that seemed to refer to the addressee of the letter, one Nancy Cooper of Newsweek. 

So I thought why not, and asked her what she thought of it all.


And she kindly replied in a roundabout way:


To which, Seth Stevenson sportingly replied:

We suspect / guess it was Seth who did the original article for Newsweek. Edit - he was and did a whole article on this drawn out saga!

And what was the article?

A rough google suggests these were the offending words:

-

THE KID CAN'T ACT: 

Insiders call 9-year-old Jake Lloyd (who plays Anakin Skywalker) ""Mannequin Skywalker''--word is he stinks. Counterbuzz: But he's so cute!

LUCAS HAS LOST IT:
 

After the trilogy, he produced ""Howard the Duck'' and ""Willow,'' and took 22 years off from directing. Not promising. Counterbuzz: Lucas is God.

SHINY, HAPPY PREQUEL: 

It looks too upbeat. To ""Star Wars'' junkies, dark = good. Counterbuzz: Episodes two and three will be more sinister.

SEE NO PREQUEL, HEAR NO PREQUEL

Truly die-hard fans ignore all prequel hype, refusing to spoil opening night. Counterbuzz: You're reading this, aren't you?

"Mannequin Skywalker" That's totally mean but quite funny and clever too.... gosh how did I not know there was already a member about this...
