- With “The Acolyte“another” Star Wars “ series is on its way Disney+
- A writer on the show has never seen a single “Star Wars” movie.
- In the eyes of showrunner Leslye Headland, however, this is an advantage.
Quite a few “Star Wars” series will be will be launched on the Disney + streaming service in the coming years. One of the so far rather unknown among these series projects from the galaxy far, far away “The Acolyte” by “Matrjoschka” maker Leslye Headland. And as the showrunner has now revealed, she has put together the writers for her series in a very special way.
Headland was a mix of “Star Wars“Experts and such writers important, who have never seen a single “Star Wars” movie. In an interview with the website AV Club “The Acolyte” showrunner reports that one of her writers had actually never come into contact with the Star Wars franchise before she was hired.
In Leslye Headland’s eyes, this is precisely what is an advantage. She received helpful feedback from the author, which went beyond “Star Wars” references and motifs to get to the core of the storytelling.
“The Acolyte” showrunner compares her approach to Captain Jean-Luc Picard from “Starship Enterprise”
Funnily enough, Leslye Headland compares this approach for her “The Acolyte” writer’s room with Captain Jean-Luc Picard from “Star Trek: The Next CenturyLike the iconic Captain of the Enterprise, she would encourage dialogue and exchange of views and always ask: What do you think? Do you have any suggestions?
The aforementioned “The Acolyte” author, who had never seen a “Star Wars” film, then, according to Leslye Headland, did her homework carefully and caught up on the most important things about the franchise. This is how Leslye Headland would have received a text message from her that said: “Luke and Leia are brother and sister? What the hell?”
