STAR WARS Movies Rumored To "Redefine Longform Storytelling" By Connecting Everything

According to a new report, Star Wars Episode VII is set to "redefine longform storytelling" with the arc of the new trilogy already set and the story set to weave through books, comics, games and more, all to make the Star Wars Universe more cohesive and engrossing. Read on for details!


In a very interesting piece over at Badass Digest (which you can read by clicking on the link below), Devin Faraci drops some interesting details about Disney and Lucasfilm's plans for the franchise moving forwards. While Marvel Studios have connected each of their movies into a shared Cinematic Universe, Star Wars will take that one step further. "We’re going to redefine longform storytelling," a Lucasfilm employee reportedly told the site. What does that mean? Well, not only is the arc of the new trilogy planned out in advance (unlike the prequels, which despite having a predetermined ending, were made up as George Lucas went along for the most part), but the story will be weaved throughout other forms of media as well. We've already seen this with Star Wars Rebels as it's believed that The Inquisitor from that Disney XD animated series will be connected to a group of villains seen in Star Wars Episode VII. A number of comic books and novels which flesh out the Star Wars Universe - no longer tied down by the countless entries into the EU - are also on the way, and while it won't be necessary to read or watch all the extra content which comes out, they will apparently flesh out the movies in a way we've not see before. What do you guys think?
