‘Star Wars 8’ Is More Realistic; A Rewrite Is Happening


“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was a success in the box office, and more of Rey’s backstory on the next film is expected. According to some rumors though, a rewrite for the script will be done.

Cinema Blend reports that production might be delayed because they need to rewrite the script before beginning to shoot. The movie producers reportedly want to minimize the significance of two new character roles.

“I said before there were two young female roles, now I actually heard that the rewrite will make these roles smaller,” discussed by Jeff Sneider in the Meet The Movie Press conference. “They want to get to know better the characters they already have. So the new rewrite is shrinking the new roles in order to spend more time with Rey, Poe and so on.” 

Cinema Blend stated that rewriting could be essential for the current characters, such as Rey, Finn and Poe, to keep the focus on them.

“All three of our new leads have been accepted by the majority of fans, and there’s still a lot to learn about all of them,” author Dirk Libbey wrote.

Meanwhile, another Star Wars anthology awaits the fans. Lucasfilm’s first spin-off anthology film, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” will kick off in theaters this year.

Based on MTV News, director Gareth Edwards stated that the movie will be more realistic, darker and grittier. Visual effects artist Neal Scanlan said that they will create more realistic creatures to depict emotions, as compared to “The Force Awakens.”

“They move more realistically, they’re able to emote more than maybe the characters that we did for ‘The Force Awakens.’ So they’re a closer part of the storytelling,” the artist revealed.
