Great news! I think that looks like a story George would totally get behind in adapting. I do think a doctrine Lucasfilm should maintain is to always experiment and try new things, so seeing that they want to foster brand new projects and franchises is a good sign to me!

And speaking of of Lucas’ original vision for Lucasfilm and Skywalker Ranch, I don’t know if it will ever truly live up to his original vision, since he sold it to Disney, which is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, Hollywood studio. Despite that, I like to think George achieved that dream in a different way.

Even though he is not the sole person responsible for the natural progression of filmmaking, I do think certain choices he made in his career, like pushing digital filmmaking and VFX technology during the Prequel era, encouraged the democratization of filmmaking in the 21st century. So although a physical filmmaker’s paradise outside of Hollywood doesn’t really exist, there are thousands of independent filmmakers around the world that can use consumer digital cameras and post-production software to make their own movies. The technology Lucasfilm and ILM pioneered during Lucas’ time helped push forward the filmmaking tools any of us could use today.
