At a recent investor conference, Walt Disney Co. chief financial officer Jay Rasulo revealed what is next for the Star Wars franchise. Now we know that Episode VII is the next big project on the Star Wars home front. When we will get any information on it is another story. What was so interesting about Rasulo’s talk with Disney investors was the Star Wars origin stories.
In Variety: “Star Wars trilogy film or ‘origin story film’ would also appear on the release schedule each year, starting with the seventh installment in the ‘Star Wars’ saga that J.J. Abrams will direct and Disney releases in 2015”. See the full story here.
These origin stories seem to follow the Marvel Comics theme of taking one character and flushing out his/ her backstory. That is an interesting take to do this with a film. However, do we want to know what happened to Obi-Wan between episodes 3 and 4? Will it be satisfying to know that story? Can Boba Fett carry a whole film on his own? Who plays Boba Fett? The casting of Obi-Wan is easy, but can Daniel Logan or Temuera Morrison carry a film?
