The importance of paying attention to the public that loves the saga
“It was shocking in Rogue One, because I really didn’t have any exposure when that movie happened and everything that happened,” Tony Gilroy explained of the harassment of the fans of Star Wars towards Kathleen Kennedy. “I was very surprised by what was happening and what I hadn’t paid attention to before. So I knew when I came back. I already knew what to expect. You have to realize that this community loves this saga so much… her passion is excessive. There are the Shias, the Sunnis, the Kurds and all kinds of people who have different ideological and political passions. But this love for the show and what it means to them is something to really pay attention to and be aware of.”
“So my attitude has been and the attitude of the Andor series is that… As much as we get out of the pot, and as much as we change the tone and the idea, we can never be cynical about it,” said the Star filmmaker. Wars, reflecting on hate towards kathleen kennedy. “We have to take it more seriously than anyone has ever taken it. We never wink. We’re not kidding either. And that’s why we have this mix of people who don’t know anything about the galactic saga on our show. We also have a lot of people on the show who are huge geeks, and it’s the marriage of knowledge and history mixed with a real ambition to take it somewhere else with, I hope, respect. I want to respect that audience.”
