Whitta Says The Next Generation Of 'Star Wars' Movies Will Not Rely On Past Stories and Characters
The world was introduced to the "Star Wars" Universe in 1977. Back then, things were simple and easy, people during those days are easily fascinated by the space genre, figures of the future and more. So when "Star Wars" came out, it instantly became a hit. As the years go by, the franchise grew and spawned a multitude of sequels, prequels, and other various merchandise.
"Star Wars" Expansion
According to Screenrant, the "Star Wars" universe had a lot of potentials. However, when Disney decided to move most parts of the Expanded Universe out of cannon, the company inadvertently reduced the mythology of "Star Wars", and has limited its potential for growth and expansion. Regardless of the limited space for growth, there are still avenues that can be explored to grow the franchise again.
As of the moment, the "Star Wars" universe is capitalizing on existing characters by either making a standalone movie like "Han Solo" or utilizing an iconic character in the latest movies, just like when Darth Vader appeared in "Rogue One". However, fans are asking when would the "Star Wars" universe take a chance on the Expanded Universe.
The best example would be the "Star Wars Rebels" series. Although the series occasionally includes existing characters into their episodes, the main casts are relatively new to the franchise. With the positive support that the gets from the "Star Wars" community, it further strengthens the notion that it might also be good to capitalize on a different part of the EU.
Predicting And Anticipating The Future Of "Star Wars"
In an interview with Coming Soon, Gary Whitta, Co-Writer of Rogue One, has explained a couple of things to the website regarding the matter of further expansion. He elaborates what the "Star Wars" universe may include in their plans. However, he did not mention anything specific.
When asked about "Star Wars" exploring beyond those that were introduced by George Lucas, Whitta responded that one of the things that they want to do is to create a universe that does not rely on legacy characters. He further explained that they have already introduced a new generation of characters through Rey, Fin and Kylo Ren. As such, Whitta does not think that the future "Star Wars" films, which will be made in the coming decades would rely on the same old characters, as well as the stories that were used in the past.
With that said, it may be fun to see what avenues Disney would take to expand the "Star Wars" Universe, and how would the expansion affect the "Star Wars" community. On the other hand, fans can catch this year's "Star Wars" movie, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" in theaters on Dec. 15.
