Apparently recorded at the same time as their previous Star Wars video discussion, this new chat between George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy take us, in many ways, backwards from the information that has already become public.
Still, there are a few new bits of particular interest. Note how Kennedy refers to there being “a couple of writers”; the potential directors being “new” but having “affinity” with Star Wars; and how she describes Lucas’ hands-off role in the developing the new films.
Kennedy does also say that she’d like to bring in writers and directors that she’s worked with before. To perhaps shine a little light on that, you might want to check out her IMDB page. As soon as I saw Seabiscuit on there and starting thinking about Gary Ross getting involved I found myself actually, literally smiling.
