David Fincher on meeting to direct EPISODE 7: “I always thought of Star Wars as the story of two slaves (C-3PO/R2-D2) who go from owner to owner, witnessing their masters’ folly, the ultimate folly of man. I thought it was an interesting idea in the first two, but it’s gone by Return of the Jedi.”(r/movies)
Kurtz is the spiritual heart of the Star Wars saga.
This is essential if you want to understand what Star Wars as a film series was, and where it was going.
Kurtz’s remark that they’d do ‘8 or 9’ films, each with a different director, and leading up to the finale that would be dethroning the Galactic Emperor is stunning when you see one man’s vision compared with what we ended up getting (including Han’s death changed because George didn’t want to hurt toy sales…)
