While nothing concrete has come out, the source who leaked word that there would be a new Star Wars trilogy not directed by George Lucas and that the trilogy would follow the next generation of Skywalkers now says that Alfonso Cuaron and Simon Pegg may have a place in the Star Wars galaxy.
As with any unnamed source, I’m skeptical and will stay that way until something more official is heard. That being said, this is an extremely interesting possibility, and I hope that the source is right.
Cuaron’s next film, Gravity, may be vastly different in tone and plot from what he’d be working with in any Star Wars films, but if Gravity lives up to the hype, it’ll show that he knows how to use CGI to recreate a realistic world in space.
I don’t think Cuaron should take on Episode VIII or IX though. »
