[Snyder says nope, no Star Wars movies of any sort on his plate.
Are you ready for the Star Wars
franchise to branch out a bit? Because, while the animated Star Wars
world has been embracing 'side' stories and parts of the cosmology outside of the principal Skywalker storyline for years now, the live action world is about to do the same.
What's coming? ABC - who, like Lucasfilm, are owned by Disney - have already acknowledged that they are looking at the long gestating live action television series
Lucasfilm has been developing over the past several years. And now Vulture brings word
and Man Of Steel
director Zack Snyder is developing a live action Star Wars
feature that will most likely fall outside of the planned third trilogy. One thing is certain, it's not Episode VII
Said to be heavily inspired by Kurosawa's Seven Samurai
, the film will reportedly fall somewhere post Return Of The Jedi
in the overall Star Wars
chronology and will revolve around a band of Jedi warriors, meaning the Jedi Council has to be re-established sometime between now and then. No other details have come out as yet but given Lucas' outspoken love for Kurosawa this makes rather a lot of sense as subject matter goes.
