I think it'd be interesting and awesome to see what Joss Whedon would do with the new Star Wars films that are coming. As of right now it's looking like Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford will be back for the new trilogy. This is something that a lot of fans like myself are excited about about, but Whedon would do things a little differently by not bringing them back.
While talking to Digital Spy, the filmmaker reveals that he would take a different, more unique approach. He would have started it off with a new and completely different set of characters leaving the legends of Luke, Leia, and Solo in the past.
You know, I wouldn't go back, I'd go forward. I would want to create characters that would resonate the way that they did.
As excited as I am about seeing these legendary characters again, I think Whedon has a good point. But it sounds like we are going to get the best of both worlds, with those three characters handing off the franchise to a new generation of characters. All I know is that I'm excited to see what Lucasfilm and J.J. Abrams are planning for the new films in the franchise!
Whedon is a crazy busy guy right now, but I'd love to see him take on a Star Wars film one day. Check out the interview below!
