Reiterating her earlier comments from back in July pertaining to whether or not Rogue One will feature an iconic Star Wars opening crawl, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in an article posted on Variety that fans should not expect one for this film.
Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy describes the movie as a World War II-style adventure. “We felt that’s so indicative of what those saga films are,” says Kennedy. “Initially, we probably will begin the film in a way that is traditional, with just the title.”
Kennedy also said 2018’s upcoming young Han Solo standalone film will have “a heist or Western type feel” to it and went on to say the following regarding the topic of a female director being brought on board to helm a future Star Wars film:
Kennedy says she is committed to continuing to populate the “Star Wars” world with diverse faces, both in front of and behind the camera. Finding a female director is a priority; fewer than 12% of the biggest box office hits last year were overseen by women.
“We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do “Star Wars,” they’re set up for success,” says Kennedy. “They’re gigantic films, and you can’t come into them with essentially no experience.”
