Boy, the Star Wars stuff won’t stop coming, will it? It’s like there’s something major going on with this franchise or something…
This latest bit of news was broken by the folks at Latino Review:
At this point, no idea what the size or shape of this film will be and given the long-view storytelling production model that is part of the Pixar brand, this could be a long way off. We can expect it to take place in the middle of a Venn Diagram between Star Wars and A Pixar Movie, and what that means to you depends on your definition of both.
While it shouldn’t surprise anyone given how much money Disney knows it will make from anything Star Wars related, I’m very much on the fence about this. Yes, the franchise is family-friendly. Yes, you can only make a story so dark or “mature” before getting out of touch with the spirit of what makes Star Wars “Star Wars”.
That said, I’ve not been keen on Pixar’s projects in the last couple of years (most notably the Cars and Planes films). If I want a more juvenile version of my current obsession, I’ll be happy as pie with the LEGO Star Wars specials (I laughed harder than a grown woman should during every single one).
What do you guys think? Yea or nay?
