UPDATE:Simon Pegg Talks STAR WARS EPISODE 7
Courtesy of Total Film Simon Pegg opened up about the much anticipated Star Wars Episode 7 and what J.J. Abrams will be bringing back to the franchise. Millennium Falcon? Check. Original characters? Check. Find out more after the jump.
In a new Total Film interview Simon Pegg spoke briefly about J.J. Abram's take on Star Wars Episode 7 and how it will have a strong emphasis on bringing the fun back to the franchise.
“What will he bring to the franchise? Everything that was missing from the last three. That’s what he did to Star Trek, really – invigorate it with a little bit of Star Wars magic. He switched it from science-fiction to science-fantasy. And I think if anyone can pull [Star Wars] out of the mire, it’s J.J. He’ll bring the fun back. Lucas seemed to misread what made the first ones great, and concentrate on things that people didn’t really care about, or wilfully ignore the things that people cared about. Whereas J.J. will embrace them all.
Pegg also spoke about some of the things we’ll definitely be seeing in the 2015 sequel.
“We’re going to see the Millennium Falcon again. We’re going to see those characters again. All the things that we loved about the first three, we will see again."
So what do you think? Is a more light hearted and fun take on the franchise as seen in the original trilogy the right direction to head?
