Only a few months after Disney bought the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas, we're slowly but surely getting a clearer picture of what the new installment will look like. We now have a director in JJ Abrams
, a screenwriter in Michael Arndt ("Little Miss Sunshine" and "Toy Story 3"), and most of the original cast has expressed a willingness to return.
The question remains, though: what will the new movie be? Will it pick up where the original trilogy left off? Or be a whole new story entirely?
We here at All Access Weekly have a few ideas of our own for the latest installment that we hope the folks at Disney will consider.STAR WARS EPISODE VII: SOLO vs. SOLO
Han Solo has dinner with Admiral Ackbar at the Mos Eisley Cantina. The film consists of a lengthy conversation between the two, with Han first griping about all the adventures he had in the first three films and how he's left that world behind him. Ackbar replies with his own view of Solo's life. The two then discuss their own individual take on life and personal world views. The film ends with them both discussing how much they dislike Jar Jar Binks.
Any of these would make for an amazing film. Indications are, though, that they'll end up doing a film that pays homage to the original trilogy by including those original characters while also introducing new elements to the cast that build to the future of the franchise.
Oh well. To each their own.Watch All Access Weekly Wedsnsdays at 1a/1c on SPIKE.Source: NBCUniversal/BEN Moviepix/STANSALL/SGranitz/Wire ImageTerry O'Neill/Contributor/Stringer/Michael Ochs Archives/UniversalImagesGroup
