As many are counting the days to buy tickets for the first screening of Star Wars and the months till the film comes out in December the president of Lucasfilm Ltd., Kathleen Kennedy, gave details on the links of the new films.
â€œThe saga films focus on the Skywalker family,â€Â says the Lucasfilm President.Â â€œThe stories follow a linear narrative that connects to the previous six films. â€˜The Force Awakensâ€™ follows â€˜Return of the Jediâ€™ and continues that generational story. The Anthology films offer opportunities to explore fresh characters, new storylines and a variety of genres inside the Star Wars universe.â€ – From the pages of the Costco Connection
More questions than answers seem to be left after the statement from Kennedy which is great that three months till the release of the film many details on the plot of the story are still to be known.
Kennedy will also add, “If you 35 to 50 and you’re in the movie business Star Wars probably had some impact on who you are as a filmmaker, and what might have inspired you to get into the movie business. Usually the first thing out of their mouth is, ‘Let me tell you how much Star Wars has meant to me in my life.'”
We will be seeing after Star Wars The Force Awakens a new stories film every year with Star Wars Anthology Rogue One releasing in December 2016. Star Wars Episode VIII on May 26, 2017 the Han Solo Anthology film on May 25, 2018 and the conclusion of the Skywalker story in 2019 from director ColinÂ Trevorrow.
