Guillermo del Toro X/Twitter confirmed that he plans to direct a film Star Wars about four years ago from a script written by David S. Goyer, best known for writing superhero movies such as Batman, Man of Steel begins and so on. The project never made it past the development stage, but Goyer confirmed on the podcast Happy Sad Confused that many great works of art were made for him.
“I wrote a movie about Star Wars did not produce that Guillermo del Toro I would have directed. That was about four years ago, Goyer said. There are a lot of things going on behind the scenes Lucasfilm at that time. It’s an interesting script … you should ask him about it. “There’s a lot of great art being done for it.”
Del Toro shared Goyer’s interview on X/Twitter and added:
“Really. I don’t have much to say. Maybe two letters J and BB, three letters?
The director’s post is primarily for fans of Star Wars to theorize about what these letters might mean. Does del Toro plan to use BB-8 in a movie? on Jabba the Hutt? The possibilities are endless.
Goyer also revealed that he has started working on a second project Star Wars a script treatment for a film about the beginning of Jedi which takes place 25,000 years before the first movie Star Wars.
Although Goyer eventually broke up Lucasfilm an original film from Jedi is currently in development under the direction of James Mangold, director of Logan e Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. He described the proposal as a biblical epic about the ascent of FORCES.
This is an opportunity to tell your whole story, the identity of FORCES Mangold said before. When I first talked to (the president of Lucasfilm) Kathy Kennedy about it, I just said, ‘I saw this opening to do something like Ben-How or The 10 Commandments about the birth of FORCES.
the FORCES has become a kind of religious legend that covers all these films. But where does it come from? How was it discovered? Who discovered it? Who is first Jedi? And that’s what I’m writing now.
Mangold’s film is one of three films by Star Wars in active development. The other, by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, is a sequel to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker which follows Rey (Daisy Ridley) while training the new order Jedi. And the third, from what the fans love Star Wars Dave Filoni, will close the interconnected stories told in the series of Disney+ The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett y Ahsoka.
