Rolling Stone‘s Andy Greene caught up with Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof following the epic Star Wars news last week. This is one of the best and most insightful discussions on where the franchise may go based on the proven success of Marvel’s recent movies and even The Hunger Games.
I’ve said this to his face, but as a storyteller, George Lucas is responsible for everything that I aspire to be. If it weren’t for him, I don’t think that I’d be doing this job. He’s literally everything. That said, it’s really courageous of him to hand off the franchise. Now someone who is obviously a huge Star Wars fan gets to put their own stamp on it.
Definitely worth the read!
