Lawrence Kasdan — the man who wrote Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Empire Strikes Back, and Return Of The Jedi — is on hand writing one of the Star Wars spin-off’s (either Boba Fett or a Young Han Solo). He recently took some time to talk about the new take on the franchise:

“I’m trying to start fresh…There are certain pleasures that we think the saga can bring to people that they’ve been missing, and we’re hoping to bring them that, and at the same time, have them feel that it’s all new.”

He also discussed George Lucas’ involvement:

“George sort of brought me into this part of it…and he’s stepping back from the company. He’s sort of given his blessing to everybody, and he’ll be there if you need him. I think everyone’s interested to see where this can go. »
