war of stars Novelist Alan Dean Foster says The last Jedi is a “terrible movie”. Foster wrote the original novel for A new hope, along with Star Wars: Splinter of the Mind’s Eye and the 2015 novella for The Force Awakens. In addition, Foster also contributed the novels for extraterrestrial, Aliens, and Alien 3. In a recent interview, the author claims he wrote a partial treatment to recreate everything Rian Johnson did with The Last Jedi.
While war of stars Sequel trilogy has been criticized since day one The last Jedi could well be the most controversial installment in the entire franchise. Rian Johnson took some bold risks in writing the script, which some fans either cherished or downright hated. Alan Dean Foster, who has a pretty good history with the franchise, falls into the latter category. He explains.
“”Episode VIII was out, it was a deal done. And I saw it and thought it was a terrible movie. I thought it was terrible war of stars Movie, and there’s no need to go into the why because every fan already has. I thought, ‘How can this be reconnected? How can we fix as much as possible Episode VIII in a proposed Episode IX? ‘And I wrote a partial treatment for it, trying to explain a lot of the really stupid things that happened to him in that story Episode VIII. “
The rise of Skywalker So it was already in production, so Alan Dean Foster was unable to get his ideas into the film, even though they probably wouldn’t have been picked up either way. “I did that for the fans,” said Foster. “I never expected Disney to do anything with it.” In his treatment for The rise of SkywalkerFoster wanted to explain why untrained Rey (Daisy Ridley) “suddenly has more powers than anyone” after visiting Ahch-To The last Jedi. “How can I explain this away? And can I somehow relate that to the fact that she was relied on on Jakku on her planet and bringing these two things together?” He asked.
Alan Dean Foster decided that Rey needed something special to explain why she was becoming such a powerful Jedi so quickly. The author wanted to give Rey an undefined disease where part of her brain would have been replaced with electronics, which could speed up her learning. “This gives her the ability to learn remarkably quickly and improve her existing powers, so she can end up throwing boulders Episode VIII“Said Foster.” She can also be sympathetic to other droids right away. I thought this was a really fun story element and would explain why and how she can do these remarkable things. “
In the end, Alan Dean Foster says, “I don’t know. I tried anyway. I tried.” As for bashing The last JediIt should also be noted that Foster is currently having some personal issues with Disney as he claims they owe him royalties over 4 years. The author claims he has not been paid since Disney took over Lucasfilm. “I don’t think Walt would approve of the way you are treating me now,” he said in a statement. “Maybe someone in the right position just didn’t get the floor, even though it’s hard to take after months of ignored inquiries and questions.” You can read the interview with Alan Dean Foster above thanks the midnight edge YouTube Channel.
