Good to read that someone finally gets it when making new Star Wars under Disney’s watch…the unspecific commentary on what many fans took issue with in TLJ is especially nice to hear. I’m sure he could also just be talking about jokes from a Marvel movie perspective but many people have attributed the humour in TLJ to being Marvel-esque (and therefore tonally out of place within the Star Wars universe):
The Original Trilogy Lives
“Star Wars is very different to Marvel style,” Waititi told press after a TCA panel for the What We Do In the Shadows TV series. “They know that the tone of the first films really should be kind of adhered to. That’s what the fans like and you can’t really disrespect it I guess is a nicer way of saying can’t put too many jokes in. There’s a bit, definitely my tone is in there, the dialogue and stuff like that.”
That’s good news for fans who might have worried a TV series could water down the movies, although nothing could be further from the original tone than the three prequels. Plus, Dave Filoni is involved and he managed consistency with his animated Star Wars shows.
