This video has four ways to make Star Wars great again. I am confused though, I thought getting JJ Abrams to direct the new movies was the good start. I do not think Abrams needs a letter sent to him to figure out how to make a movie. That said, I have a feeling that people will complain no matter what. That is what people do. The italicized parts are from the video and I will respond after it.
1. The Setting is the Frontier.
Star Wars doesn’t happen in the city. It doesn’t happen in parliament. Or in the library. It happens out here. Away from civilization. Amidst smugglers and bounty hunters. Star Wars is a western. And it’s set in the frontier.
I actually agree with this to a point. I might not call it a western or the frontier, but the originals were set out in the fringe parts of the galaxy. That is where rebellion would most likely spring up (look at all the great empires in history).
2. The Future is Old
Star Wars’ beauty isn’t clean. It isn’t new. It’s dirty. Gritty. Second hand world. The beauty of the frontier.
