Writer talks about how he came onto the new films...
Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) recently spoke with the LA Times about the new spin-off Star Wars films. Check out the highlights:
On his goal with his spin-off: "I'm trying to start fresh. There are certain pleasures that we think the saga can bring to people that they've been missing, and we're hoping to bring them that, and at the same time, have them feel that it's all new."
On how he came back to the franchise: "George sort of brought me into this part of it, and he's stepping back from the company. He's sort of given his blessing to everybody, and he'll be there if you need him. I think everyone's interested to see where this can go. It's been some very different places over 30 years …. I think with J.J., we'll get something entirely new."
