Additionally, Goyer has stated that he has also signed a script that would explore the origins of the Jedi Order.
I won’t deny that for a season now, every time a new “Star Wars” project is announced, I have to make a gesture with my eyes that could be translated as “You don’t know how to stop.” I may be suddenly grown up – I don’t think so – but The infinite expansion of the galactic universe by George Lucas It’s rapidly losing interest to me; Although There is always room for surprises.
J, BB, GdT
Unfortunately, the only feature film in the saga that caught my attention will not see the light of day. This is nothing other than the one that Guillermo del Toro should have directed from a libretto by David S. Goyer and whose existence we just learned from an interview with the screenwriter on Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast.
In it, Goyer confessed “wrote an unproduced Star Wars film to be directed by Guillermo del Toro”. When Horowitz asked What happened to the project? the writer stated the following:
“There was a lot going on behind the scenes at Lucasfilm back then, but it’s a great script… There was a lot of great art done for it.”
Of course, Del Toro, who is very active on social networks, quickly responded to the screenwriter’s statements with a cryptic message: “True. I can’t say much. Maybe two letters. J and BB. Are those three letters?”. Of course, it didn’t take long before the fan base started speculating, He focused his theories on Jabba the Hutt and even the lovable droid BB-8.
While speaking to Happy Sad Confused, David S. Goyer confirmed this It wasn’t the only Star Wars project he was involved with.. He also wrote a script for a narrative film the origins of the Jedi Order takes place 25,000 years before the events of the franchise we know; A title that also fell on deaf ears… although not entirely.
We must not forget that last April, during the Star Wars celebration in London, the filmmaker James Mangold described the title of the saga he is working on “The Ten Commandments of Power,” “a sort of origin story about how power came to be known, understood, harnessed, and exploited.”. It is clear that since then LucasFilm doesn’t want to dismiss the idea of traveling to a very, very distant past to continue squeezing the goose that lays the golden eggs.
