Star Wars Spin-Off Details Revealed By Producer Kathleen Kennedy; Are These All Prequels?
“Star Wars” fans are not only looking forward to “The Force Awakens” which will hit cinemas next week, but they are now anticipating for the next movies in the promised trilogy including the two spinoffs. All these will happen in the course of the next few years. The producer, Kathleen Kennedy, has given details amidst some fans’ expectations that the spinoffs will all be prequels.
In an article from Screen Rant, Kennedy explained that the 2016 release spin-off “Rogue One” is not at first intended to be a prequel but due to their objectives of including their own approach, it turned out to be similar.
“No, no. It just so happens to be Rogue One is the precursor to New Hope and yes, this Han Solo idea but I would not argue that we are setting up any kind of prequel notion with these standalone movies. I think that’s so far just coincidence. And to be perfectly honest, we have changed the order of those at the last minute, so that’s not the intention at all.”, Kennedy said.
According to Movie Web, many supporters are now thinking if the spinoffs will be like how the Marvel characters were given highlights in the film releases.
Kennedy told in the interview, “It is definitely in the genre thinking but Star Wars is very different than Marvel in that they basically build their stories around characters, and then they need those characters in different stories. Star Wars, you know, is a place, it’s a universe, so those stories are constructed a little differently than Marvel. They are really being designed as standalone movies which are fantastic for the filmmakers we bring in, and the actors we hire, because it’s a different sensibility.”
