How Should Rogue One & Other Star Wars Stories Begin?
Entertainment Weekly, we know we have a lot to look forward to in Rogue One (as if we didn't already): Deathtroopers take time out of their busy lives to play with Stormtrooper dolls, Darth Vader will be making his triumphant return to the silver screen, and Saw Gerrera has stayed the rebellious course and is now a grizzled veteran member of the daring team that steals the Death Star plans, just to name a few...so, yeah, its shaping up to be an amazing Star Wars experience...but how's it going to begin? Will we get the classic Star Wars opening crawl, or will it start with a cold open like most other films? Or will it be something else altogether? I have a few ideas that I think would work well, so read on and see what you think...
The Classic Crawl
The Simple Solution
Journal of the Whills
So, what do you think? They should totally use my idea, right? I thought so, you guys have great taste...okay, seriously, what do you think? Are you classic crawl or bust? Should they just do a cold open and forget about it? Should each anthology film start differently, or should they be the same or at least similar? I'm curious to see if people like any of my ideas or if they've come up with other, different ideas of their own. I mean, I'm open to competition for my Journal of the Whills idea, but I'm not going to hold my breath expecting someone to come up with something better...okay, I'm kidding, I can't even phone in that kind of egotistical confidence...anyway, leave a comment and let me know how you'd open up Rogue One and/or the other anthology films and we'll keep the topic going; otherwise, and I bet you saw this coming, may the Force be with you...
