Rumors have been swirling around the internet for months that a new Star Movie is in the works. Fans of the beloved franchise are eager to know if these rumors are true and what they can expect from this new addition to the Star universe.
What We Know So Far:
At this point, there has been no official confirmation from any studio or production company that a new Star Movie is in development. However, there have been some hints and clues that suggest something might be in the works.
- One of the biggest pieces of evidence is a tweet from director J.J. Abrams, who directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In the tweet, he shared a photo of himself with Daisy Ridley, one of the stars of The Force Awakens, with the caption “Celebrating our final day of shooting.”
This led many fans to believe that they were working on something related to Star Wars.
- In addition to this tweet, there have been reports that Disney (which owns Lucasfilm and therefore controls the Star Wars franchise) has reserved several release dates for unspecified “event” movies. Some fans speculate that one of these dates could be for a new Star Movie.
What We Don’t Know:
Of course, until there is an official confirmation from a studio or production company, we can’t say for certain whether or not a new Star Movie is actually happening.
What Fans Want:
Assuming that there is indeed a new Star Movie in development (and let’s face it, we all hope there is), what do fans want to see from it? Here are some of the most popular requests:
- A return to practical effects: One of the biggest criticisms of some recent entries in the franchise has been their reliance on CGI rather than practical effects. Fans would love to see a return to the old-school techniques that made the original trilogy so beloved.
- A focus on character: While there is no denying that the Star universe is full of exciting action and epic battles, fans also want to see a deeper exploration of the characters.
They want to get to know these heroes and villains on a more personal level.
- A fresh take on the story: While fans love the familiar elements of the Star universe, they don’t want to see a retread of old stories. They want something new and exciting that still feels true to the spirit of Star.
The Bottom Line:
While we can’t say for certain whether or not a new Star Movie is in development, there are certainly some signs that suggest something could be happening behind the scenes. As fans eagerly await any official confirmation, they can only hope that their favorite franchise will continue to thrive and deliver exciting new adventures for years to come.
