“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is the first installment in the latest trilogy sequel which Lucasfilm and Disney will present to the moviegoers and fans. With all the past movies spanning from few decades ago until 2005, how did the stories were conceptualized to fit in for this new films? The creative writers themselves shared the experience.
According to Hollywood Reporter, the five writers who penned the latest Star Wars offering are Lawrence Kasdan, Michael Arndt, Simon Kinberg, Kiri Hart, and Pablo Hidalgo. Here are some of their impressive and recent credentials. Kasdan is the writer from the other trilogy of Star Wars and was behind the “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “The Empire Strikes Back,” and “Return of the Jedi.”
Arndt is included in the writing creation of hit films “Toy Story 3” and “Little Miss Sunshine” plus he has Oscar awards under his name. Kinberg is included in the success of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Hart is the leader of the writer team for this current trilogy and Hidalgo is the key person in making the details of the entire Star Wars stories consistent.
Kinberg shared, “The dynamic was in many ways like a TV writer’s room, where you have writers breaking story, knowing many of the main characters from the original trilogy but not knowing where their story may go,”
Hart recounted, “It was very collaborative, with all these conversations taking place around a big whiteboard. It was very much about putting ideas up on the board and exploring together. There were millions of things that we bounced around and abandoned.”
In an article from LA Times as cited by Den of Geek, Kasdan, Kasdan admitted, “I’ve written four Star Wars movies now, and I don’t know what the canon is.” It’s a whole lot better to work in a group than do it alone.
Thank you to these five writers who are included in the creative team behind it, the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will debut next week on theaters.
