Everyone has an opinion about what they want to see from the future of Star Wars now that the Skywalker Saga is over, but a quick look at the internet would lead you to believe that Lucasfilm is trying hard not to give people what they want.
It’s been a wild ride for a galaxy far, far away under the leadership of Disney and Kathleen Kennedy, that’s for sure, with nearly every project suffering behind-the-scenes struggles while most on-screen production has tended to split the opinion in one form or another.
the mandalorian Y rogue one they’re as darling as it gets, but all you have to do is mention deepfakes, de-aging, the last jedi, the rise of skywalker, boba fett bookeither Obi Wan Kenobi be inundated with a storm of opinions. A Star Wars veteran with a more measured view of what the future might hold is Episode IX Dominic Monaghan, who shared his thoughts in an interview with ScreenRant.
“I think they are telling different stories with different characters in the Star Wars universe, and I wonder if maybe after focusing so much on Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Ewan McGregor, and Hayden Christensen, maybe they should be telling stories from the female point of view or different people’s point of view. So, I’ll sit and wait.”
It looks like the upcoming lineup will continue to lean toward nostalgia, so it could be a while before Monaghan gets his wish, but most Star Wars supporters would surely agree that the days of keeping one foot rooted in the past must be coming to an end.
