Just the other day I was reading the Lucas biography, Skywalking, and was thinking, not for the first time, what a shame it is that Lucas’s vision for Lucasfilm and Skywalker Ranch - a collective for filmmakers to work together to create original films outside of the studio system - never came to pass. And as much as I’ve liked what’s been done with the Star Wars franchise under Disney, I’ve thought it’s unfortunate that they moved even further from that vision.
Of course, I’ve always hoped that Kathleen Kennedy would someday seek out potential opportunities for LFL beyond Star Wars and Indy. Well, seems today is that day, with “Children of Blood and Bone”:
Hopefully we’ll see more stuff like this in the future.
