Long before we all focused on the cute baby Yoda in the Disney Plus series, "Mandalorian", "The Last Jedi", director Rian Johnson, was already face to face with him. ,
One of the benefits that led to the creation of the movie "Star Wars" is the huge amount of access. And for Johnson, it meant visiting The Mandalorian during season one.
Along with chatting with the show's creator and executive, Jon Favreau and co-producer, Dave Filoni, he also had to look at the puppet who became her star.
"I saw Yoda's child on stage" He told Business Insider in promoting his new movie "Knives Out" (in theaters on November 27) and added that he was waiting for the show to finally drop the humble hoarse.
"It's so beautiful," he said of creation.
Johnson admitted that since he was promoting "Knives Out", he had no chance to watch any of these shows yet.
"But he added that when he was on the scene" Mandalorian ", his creativity continued to do what he could do further in the saga" Star Wars. "
" It's like having a baby and having toys, it's like this, but on a life scale, ”said Johnson. It's impossible to think about things. It's inspiring. It's creative refreshing to be in the middle of it. “
But how Johnson is exactly involved in the development of Star Wars is very unclear.
After the release of "The Last Jedi," it was announced that it would embark on a brand new franchise trilogy, but since then the franchise has been severely disrupted.
Disney CEO Bob Iger told the BBC that in the future there will be a path to "less is more" than in the past "we produced and released too many" Star Wars "movies in the short term." to the story "Solo: A Star Wars Story" from 2018. Then in late October, the creators of "Game of Thrones" David Benioff and DB Weiss abandoned his planned trilogy for "Star Wars". ("Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker" opens on December 20 and closes Skywalker saga.)
Johnson seems to be still standing, but he doesn't say anything. Asked if Disney's "Star Wars" movie was one of his films for 2022, he answered Business Insider: "You'll have to wait until they announce what they want to announce. I don't have any updates. "
A story by a Hollywood reporter said on Wednesday that he quotes a" source "that the movie scheduled for 2022 is not one of Johnson's projects.
The THR story also stated that going on, along with Lucasfilm's head Kathleen Kennedy, who watches things "mandalorian" executive producers Favreau and Filoni, will also have a lot to say about the future of franchise.
Johnson said that on his way to "Mandalorian" outside of Baby Yoda, there was a great deal of success how much Filoni was locked in the "Star Wars" mythology.
"Filoni has the soul of" Star Wars, "Johnson said. "It has a heart."
