With “Andor” having simply completed its first season run, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” co-writer Gary Whitta has taken to social media to debate one other “Star Wars” present – one which didn’t get previous the pitch stage.
Whitta had penned movies corresponding to “The Guide of Eli” and “After Earth” earlier than happening to co-write “Rogue One” with Chris Weitz after which a number of episodes of the animated “Star Wars: Rebels”.
On Twitter, Whitta revealed a plan he and Weitz had for a TV sequence – one that might happen a couple of years after the unique trilogy (round “The Mandolorian” time):
“Years in the past my Rogue One co-writer Chris Weitz and I had a cool thought for a TV present a few Mossad-style Insurgent staff searching down Imperial battle criminals who fled and disappeared after the autumn of the Empire. May have been a cool bookend to R1. We by no means did something with it although.”
From the sounds of it, the writers by no means progressed a lot past an thought for the challenge – a good distance from a accomplished script not to mention starting manufacturing. Would it not have adopted a critical grownup method, the sort that “Andor” is being celebrated for? Whitta didn’t say.
