Star Wars boss teases something we've waited a long time to see

Star Wars boss teases something we've waited a long time to see

Could this idea appeal to a new audience?

Many kids my age grew up watching the Star Wars movie and with them being rated 12 or PG-13, it was an accessible way to get into the world of sci-fi films.

Although I was more of a Harry Potter girl, many of my peers were huge Star Wars fans when I was growing up and the movies have gone on to become a cornerstone of many people’s childhoods.

However, what if the movies were a tad more R-rated? That has definitely been considered by Lucasfilm chief creative officer, Dave Filoni.

According to a recent interview with Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Filoni is open to exploring the Star Wars universe across all age ratings.

When asked about an R-rated Star Wars movie, he said: "Sure, I mean, I don't know. It's interesting. The bottom line is, whatever we do it has to be really well done. When you look at something that's taken as different, like Andor, it's so well done. I think that there's an audience for that.

I think also with that audience, I want to still be hitting the imagination of the kids out there, so they can grow up and appreciate those things."

Filoni went on to explain how he believes all current and future Star Wars creatives should infuse their own voices into an adaptation, instead of mimicking the franchise’s creator, George Lucas.

"I think that it encompasses all types of styles, and the creatives of these particular stories driving it is kind of the most important thing, and they should do something that's within their comfort zone. Otherwise, just imagine that everyone's gonna come and pretend that they're George Lucas, and they're not."

It remains to be seen if there will ever be an R-rated Star Wars movie but it will definitely create a different feel to the original and classic films.
