What is the future of Star Wars is Disney now?

What is the future of Star Wars is Disney now?

(C) Disney

It is certainly one of the year’s news: Disney bought Lucasfilm to George Lucas for USD $4,050 million . Later, confirmed that will return to the big screen with the seventh of the series 2015, which also plan to release Episode 8 and 9, completing the three trilogies that has been speculated that George Lucas plans to do since 1976 .

While Lucas says the deal will remain as creative consultant, his collaborator for decades, film producer Kathleen Kennedy (qiuen co-founded Amblin Entertainment with Steven Spielberg in 1981 and produced films like ET, Jurassic Park, and Schindler’s List ) will have full control to decide where it will go a new trilogy: “She is more than capable of taking over Star Wars and do something better than I did,” said Lucas.

The only three facts that have always been repeated speculation about the third are to be set in about 20 or 30 years after ‘Return of the Jedi’, the hero would have to be a ward of (because the relationship teacher-pupil is characteristic of the Star Wars movies), and R2-D2 will and C-3PO.


For now, the only confirmed is who will write the new film, a responsibility that fell on the shoulders of American Michael Arndt, who has asked for some time to make a treatment (a pre script which briefly describes the scenes and dialogues) and launch ideas to the franchise where he could go.

It’s definitely good news, as Arndt is a respected screenwriter who won an Oscar for his work in Little Miss Sunshine , also worked on the screenplay for Toy Story 3 and now prepares the sequel to The Hunger Games: In Flames (Catching Fire)

Who could appear in the new trilogy?

For now, the best thing was that the three major protagonists of the saga (Luke, Leia and Han Solo) would be willing to appear in movies such hypothetical: When asked Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia, if he would appear in the new Star Wars, she replied, “Sure! Of course Did not you?

The funny thing is that Fisher then said something that coincides with a comment of Samuel L. Jackson (Mace Windu): could have had even more money by selling Disney Lucasfilms.

While Harrison Ford, who never boasted with the character of Han Solo (in fact once attended an event related to Star Wars, a charity dinner in honor of the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back in 2010, and in the same year said in an interview that it was not interesting as a character), said his close that is open to join the cast also upcoming movies, like Fischer and Mark Hamill.

In fact Hamill, better known as Luke Skywalker (or as the voice of the Joker in the animated series and video games), said George Lucas told him and Fisher for months about plans to complete a third trilogy, but also took by surprise the sale of Lucasfilm.

Potential directors

While some speakers that could be Matthew Vaughn (responsible for Kick-Ass, Stardust and X-Men: First Class), others speculate that it might be Colin Trevorrow , director of a small independent film called Safety Not Guaranteed , and ensuring that George Lucas spoke about Episode 7 for quite some time, long before it had issued the sale of Lucasfilm.

Unfortunately, and asked his opinion about Quentin Tarantino , and said it could not be less interested in a new trilogy of Star Wars, especially if Disney would produce

In speculate no guile

One might also speculate that since Disney now owns Lucasfilms and Marvel Comics , and already rumors that could buy Hasbro , perfectly kind could make a video game Kingdom Hearts with Mickey, R2-D2, Spider-Man, Optimus Prime and Scarlett from GI Joe, with a special edition of the game Dungeons and Dragons or Magic: The Gathering (because the latter belong to Hasbro). Crazy.
