The screenwriter of the Star Wars prequel ended up delighted with the talk he had with the director: “It was like talking to the president.”
Despite the fact that George Lucas has been away from the Star Wars saga for years and is no longer an active figure in the decisions that Lucasfilm makes, the director has never kept his opinion on the new films that have been released over the years, both to congratulate its directors and screenwriters and to criticize the decisions made by the production company.
However, the creator of the space saga does not like to speak in public too much, so his impressions are always known through those he has congratulated, or scolded, depending on the final product. And Tony Gilroy, screenwriter of Rogue One. A Star Wars Storyseems to be among the firstas he himself has revealed to Deadline.
“George Lucas called me after watching Rogue One, we had a 45 minute conversation and that’s the only time I’ve ever spoken to him. He loved it. Really yes. He had a lot of things to tell me and I… I was hallucinating, It was like talking to the president,” said the scriptwriter who also did not want to give more information about what Lucas told him.
But it’s no wonder the creator of the Star Wars universe was so excited about Rogue One, as critics were also unanimous in praising Gareth Edwards’ film which, unlike other films, left the original canon of the franchise intact since the plot begins and ends in the film.
Andor, the series after Rogue One. A Star Wars Story
In fact, the film starring Felicity Jones and Diego Luna was so popular in its day that has given rise to a series that tells how Cassian Andor ends up being part of the galactic resistance against the Empire. A production that has also garnered great criticism and that production of its second season has already begun.
A second season that has made everyone ask the same question: Will Jyn Erso appear in any chapter? Well, according to Felicity Jones herself, no one has contacted her to offer to return, but she would not hesitate to return to the Star Wars universe.
