Many of you are very familiar with the debacle that landed on the big screen in the form of the recent Star Wars prequels. All you had to see was a CGI Jar Jar Binks to know that the gritty, western space odyssey you knew and loved was long gone.
The ad agency Sincerely Truman created the above video to highlight 4 rules that JJ Abrams should follow in his attempt to resurrect the Star Wars franchise.
To sum up the video, the rules are as follows:
- The setting must take place in the frontier. Star Wars is a Sci-Fi Western, and the intrigue lies in the outskirts of the universe.
- The future is old — no shiny spaceships, metallic droids, etc. It must be gritty.
- The Force is mysterious. You don’t need to tell us how it works.
- “Star Wars” isn’t cute. This is where I think JJ Abrams will certainly excel. He turned Star Trek into a violent, cut throat universe and I think he can do the same for Star Wars.
