Entertainment ‘Star Wars: Skeleton Crew’ set video reveals speeder stunt sequence
How Involved George Lucas Really Was in Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Star Wars: The Clone Wars represents an important part of the Star Wars canon, but how involved was George Lucas in the animated series?While George Lucas would often try not to contradict any terms from the Expanded Universe, it did not take long before Clone Wars went against elements from the Star Wars EU. Topics like Mandalore and the story of characters like Jango Fett sparked a canon debate involving Clone Wars and the Star Wars Expanded Universe, but the former “won” those canon debates precisely because it had George Lucas as part of the project.
Information is thin on the ground about. Due sometime in 2023, the show is directed by MCU Spider-Man director Jon Watts and is described as with Jude Law starring as an older character. We also know it’s set in the same time period as The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and Ahsoka, so perhaps we’ll see teens dealing with the fall of the Empire and life within the New Republic.
Now we can add one more thing to that list, as Skeleton Crew is confirmed to feature a Speeder Bike chase scene. YouTube channel Bespin Bulletin uploaded a video from the set which appears to show a young actor in helmetless Stormtrooper armor crashing a bike and flying through the air.
Rian Johnson's New Star Wars Trilogy Update Sets Up More Disappointment
Rian Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy has been officially confirmed since 2017, yet it is still unclear if the films will actually be made or not.Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm, stated that the studio was immensely proud of what Rian Johnson had crafted with The Last Jedi, which factored into the decision to give Johnson a trilogy set in the Star Wars universe. However, after the release of The Last Jedi and the divisive fan reactions that followed, updates on the trilogy began to slow. Many thought that Lucasfilm had canceled the project due to said split reaction to Johnson's film, yet there has never been any confirmation of this over the years.
Check it out:
Skeleton Crew began shooting in mid-August in Manhattan Beach Studios in Los Angeles Country, with its working title ‘Grammar Rodeo’ lifted from the classic The Simpsons episode ‘Bart on the Road. The first season’s shoot is expected to last for much of the rest of the year, though prior to this Lucasfilm had taken care to film behind closed doors.
If the show is heading outside to shoot some stunts we may yet see more of Skeleton Crew over the next months. Here’s hoping we get a better idea of how it’ll shake out, as a Star Wars adventureand classic Spielberg sounds interesting if nothing else.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew will be released on Disney Plus in 2023.
