While all the talk about the potential "Star Wars" spin-offs have been about what old characters could come back, those tasked with actually writing them seem more intent on moving forward. Screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan tells The LA Times:
"I’m trying to start fresh. There are certain pleasures that we think the saga can bring to people that they’ve been missing, and we’re hoping to bring them that, and at the same time, have them feel that it’s all new."
Scribe Simon Kinberg is more hesitant, telling IGN:
"As a fan, I wouldn't want to know too much… I understand the excitement, and I'm happy that people are interested, obviously. But I'd rather people have something left to discover when they go in."
