I hear you, buddy.
I've been thinking about remaking The Star Wars Prequels in a comic-book form for some time now. And while I think I have some cool ideas that could actually work... there's just not enough of them. I mean, you can't build a house with just a few bricks. :/
First, of course, is the script.
The story has to make sense, characters have to be interesting/well written, the whole thing's gotta have a nice flow and a style that fits in with The Original Trilogy. But it's easier said than done...
Like, take fan-written scripts, for example. The main problem with most of them is that they take themselves way too seriously. The dialogue is sophisticated and filled with unusual words and expressions. Story-lines are a bit too complex and rather joyless. Then there's a lot of political crap mixed with moody action scenes...
And, on top of that, you can actually feel that the person writing the script is more worried than excited [to write a Star Wars story]. Without fun there's no fun... And it's the same thing with me.
That damn script. It's a major problem. The deeper I try to get into it, the more plot-holes I make, the more depressed I get... The fact that English isn't my 1st language doesn't help either.
And then, of course, there's drawing - putting it all on a page.
Personally, I'm just an amateur caricaturist. I draw stuff like this:
Now, can you even imagine my take on a wide-shot of Coruscant? ... That's right...
So, yeah, this prequel re-write - I wanna do it, I just don't know if I can.
But I really hope that some day someone will. Cause it would be awesome!
