Robert Rodríguez is very excited about his second foray into the world of Star Wars, the series The Book of Boba Fett.
Thanks to its first experiment to create a live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian , Disney has found a new vein to continue exploiting the franchise that George Lucas once created and that is giving other directors the opportunity to reinvent themselves.
Like, for example, Robert Rodríguez, who had the opportunity to direct the episode of the second season of The Mandalorian , which gave him the opportunity to acquire one of the most beloved characters in Star Wars to develop his own series.
The Boba Fett Book opens in December this year on Disney + , and Rodriguez couldn’t be more excited about this project, which he believes fans of the franchise will love as revealed in an interview with Collider.
“I can’t say anything about the series right now, just that it’s going to premiere in December … Wait and see what’s to come. It’s going to make your head explode. It’s the only thing I can tell. I know I can. say this as many times as you want because the series gives what it promises. In fact, it gives much more. People are going to hallucinate when they see it, “said the director.
For Rodriguez, directing this series has been a challenge, not only because it is a Star Wars property, but because he has had to deal a second time, after working on The Mandalorian , with the spectacular Stagecraft technology that allows him to create dynamic backgrounds without using a green screen.
“For me it makes a lot of sense to use it in a series because that way you have funds that you can reuse when you go back to those places in the story. But I don’t think I would use it for a movie, because there you shoot for a couple of minutes and then you don’t come back. to that stage never again, “explained Rodríguez.
