We all know that Lucas Film has been bought by Disney, and we all know that they're planning sequels and Spin-Offs. I would like to tell and show you my thoughts.
Oscar winning writer Micheal Arndt is pinning the first sequel. Awesome! And JJ. Abrams is directing the first movie. That's what we need! A fan boy who knows not only his Star Wars stuff but that the prequels werent the best. Which means probable tone down of too much Greenscreen/CGI and JarJar Binks. So far this movie looks like it will at least be better than the prequels.
We got the director, we got the writer which are both great. But now we need Actors who can act! You guys know who i'm talking about. The near killer of the francise. Moment of silence.... Hayden Christensen. Enough said about that. But there's no doubt there will be some familiar faces, and characters. I would love some new faces tho, the originals drove those actors into fame I think these movies would be the perfect opportunity to showcase a fresh new face. With good actors along with a good director and a good script. No worries.
And because JJ. Abrams is directing. I think we can assume that people from his shows and movies might be In the movie. And even tho Michael Giacchino is Abrams usual composer, Abrams himself said the legend John Williams is coming back to compose once again. That makes me a little sad but i can't argue with the choice to bring back a legend. And plus i think Giacchino will do some of the spin offs or something, he's just too good to pass up on.
Whether its in the new episodes or a spin off, they need to get the people who worked on the video games and trailers to help out as consultants or something, cause those trailers were epic. And it would be awesome to have them aboard any ship that involves a new Star Wars anything.
Alright. Now i'm going to show the actual actors and future directors (to take over after JJ. Abrams), writers and different composers i think should do an episode or spin-off (because lets be honest whats Star Wars without music). So as a fan of Star Wars i bring you my personal Future Star Wars wishlist.
I will update.
“ He did a great job with District 9, did plenty of awesome short films including the best Halo movie we'll never see. This guy could do just as good if not better than JJ. Abrams with a fifth of the budget. Great with visuals and storytelling. If Elysium is a hit, critically and financially I would be shocked If Kathleen Kennedy didn't consider him for a spin off or Episode. ” - CrawfordFilm
Peter Jackson was born as an only child in a small coast-side town in New Zealand in 1961. When a friend of his parents bought him a super 8 movie camera (because she saw how much he enjoyed taking photos), the then eight-year-old Peter instantly grabbed the thing to start recording his own movies, which he made with his friends...
“ That April Fools video he made had a little Easter egg of sorts in it, a script for Star Wars Episode VIII. It may mean nothing at all, but it is kind of curious tho, I don't think he would randomly just throw in a fake script for a Star Wars episode just for good measure.
If he is interested in doing a Star Wars movie at all that will make us fanboys and LucasFilm's heads just explode. Kathleen Kennedy would amediately give him a call, they are all hands on deck with this franchise and they are trying to get top he best talent they can find, and Jackson is no exception. I really don't have to keep talking. It would be incredible if he could do a Star Wars movie. ” - CrawfordFilm
Joss Whedon is the middle of five brothers - his younger brothers are Jed Whedon
and Zack Whedon
. Both his father, Tom Whedon
and his grandfather, John Whedon
were successful television writers. Joss' mother, Lee Stearns, was a history teacher and she also wrote novels as Lee Whedon...
“ You can't have a Star Wars wish-list without including him. I don't have to say anything about him that hasn't been said already. But I will say one thing, just a day before JJ. Abrams was announced director, he said he wanted to direct a Star Wars movie. So I think once Avengers 2 is almost done with post-production and trailers start coming out, they'll give him a call (kind of like how JJ. Abrams and Star Trek Into Darkness worked out).
I would also love if he wrote and directed the movie, holy crap that would be amazing! Plus he could just write one the movies and someone else could direct, I would be fine with that, but I would much rather him do both. ” - CrawfordFilm
Alfonso Cuarón Orozco was born on November 28th in Mexico City, Mexico. From an early age, he yearned to be either a film director or an astronaut. However, he did not want to enter the army, so he settled for directing. He didn't receive his first camera until his twelfth birthday, and then immediately started to film everything he saw...
“ Not many people probably remember this, but a while ago it was rumored that Cuaron is in talks to do the 8th one. Whether that is true or not had yet to be determined but I would like to share my thoughts on why I think he would be a great pick.
First off he directed one of my favorite sequels ever Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban. That movie was so good because he had the perfect blend of dark and blissful youth adventure that the other two had. I in general really want different visions for these sequels and spin offs. If their looking for an Empire Strikes Back type film that's really different because of scale and tone by being a little darker than previous, I think he would be perfect. ” - CrawfordFilm
Zachary Edward "Zack" Snyder (born March 1, 1966) is an American film director, film producer, and screenwriter, best known for action and science fiction films. Snyder made his feature film debut with the 2004 remake Dawn of the Dead and has gone on to be known for his comic book movies and superhero films...
“ Not the best director ever, but a heck a visionary one. His camera work and CGI effects look incredible. When he doesn't work on a script the movie is even more awesome, which will be the case most likely If did do a Star Wars film. If Man of Steel is a huge success (which it definitely will be) and if it's well enough received by the critics, again, Kathleen Kennedy better give him a call. And one more thing, If he does do a movie, I will be breathless with anticipation for the trailer of the movie ( cause all of his movies have AMAZING trailers! ). ” - CrawfordFilm
“ The best composer of the modern day. Has done most of JJ. Abrams work. Like i said John Williams is doing Episode VII not him, but i think he's too good to pass up on for a Spin-Off or something. Cause John Williams can't do all of them, it would be weird, i want different music all around but still have some of the classic themes Williams gave us. ” - CrawfordFilm
“ If Jackson does do one. I would pick him to do the music. Just let John Williams set the tone with the 7th one and let other people like Michael Giacchino and Shore take the helm. I would rather have great scores by these guys than a recycled Williams one. Like I said i like different visions or sounds in this case, and he's no exception. Lord of The Rings is like my favorite score, Jackson or not get this guy something to do in that universe. ” - CrawfordFilm
“ Quite a good composer. All the movies he's done wouldn't be the same without him I don't think. He's just great. If you haven't listened to any if his stuff your missing out. ” - CrawfordFilm
