“Boba Fett is both simultaneously alive and dead in the Sarlaac Pit until a story pulls him out.”
That’s Pablo Hidalgo, one of the members of the Lucasfilm Story Group, trying to explain how and why their team makes story choices. The Story Group is a new group of Lucasfilm employees, headed up by Kiri Hart and created by President Kathleen Kennedy, whose job is to make sure every single Star Wars movie, TV show, book, comic book and video game tell one, big Star Wars story. At Star Wars Celebration Hidalgo and fellow Story Group member Leland Chee sat on a panel called One Big Story, along side editors from Del Ray Books, DK Publishing, Disney Publishing and Marvel Comics, to talk to fans about this new initiative to make sure all Star Wars stories tell the same story.
Unfortunately, there were no definitive big answers given about fan questions such as Boba Fett’s fate or The Old Republic, but there was lots of teasing and insight. Plus there was discussion on the overall plan the Story Group has, how they interact with creative people, their willingness to explore new things in the Star Wars Universe, the Expanded Universe and the potential length of this plan. Read all about the operations of the Lucasfilm Story Group below. Read More »
