Future Star Wars Movies Will Move Away From Legacy Characters!

One of the writers from Rogue One, Gary Whitta says this. Yet, who we kidding?! We all know what and who was the best freaking part of said movie?

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is almost upon us Digitally (just five more days before its release), while we have to wait till April 4th. During which, one of the movie writers, Gary Whitta, has come out in an interview with ComingSoon stating that future movies down the line won't rely on "legacy" characters such as Darth Vader to buff them up.

One of the thing things we really want to do at Lucasfilm is create a universe and not keep relying on old legacy characters. We've got Rey and Finn and Kylo Ren, they've already introduced a new generation of characters. Whatever kind of Star Wars films they're making 10 or 20 years from now, I don't think they're going to be relying on the same legacy story elements as we have in the past.

Of course, he stresses that the Han Solo spin-off movie will have that, but beyond that? That's basically it. I get the idea. I really do. Though, um I have one retort to this. And that's basically, who had the probably THE best scene of Rogue One? Oh right, it was a legacy character. 




Now, THIS is pod-racing. 

Which makes my own point. Sometimes legacy characters need that little piece to give long-time fans to finally see be filled in. Because seeing said legacy character do what's always thought or hinted and actually seen on film? It also can be a moment of other newer characters reaching a plateau as said legacy characters have done. Anyway, rant over. I'm just gonna watch that scene over and over again. Cause GODDAMN is it freaking awesome!
