Or will real people with real problems wake up with a foggy memory and an empty fifth next to an unscathed hologram in their bed? Can a hologram of a hologram bring the o.g. Obi-Wan to 'tween birthday parties everywhere?
Will SAG actors be filing lawsuits against their hologram counterparts? Stupid holograms. Coming here, taking our jobs. Can two holograms marry each other in this country? It's no holds barred.
