“We’re doing something different,” executive producer Roberto Orci told The Hollywood Reporter, describing the new Star Wars film as “a new story, and it’s a very different story than the previous film.”
“You’ll get a lot of the characters you know, and a lot more of the new things you never thought of before.”
And we’ll get the iconic scenes of the original series, he added.
“It’s going to be a very big and bold thing,” Orci said, noting that “Star Wars” director J.J. Abrams has been “very open to the idea” of returning to the franchise.
“I think we’ve all been very open to it.
We just need to work on it.”
While the original trilogy was a big hit for Abrams, the franchise’s “Star Destroyer” and “Return of the Jedi” films proved less popular, while the new films have been a bit more expensive.
“We can see why people are not as fond of the reboot as the original,” Orcin said.
“But I’m very proud of the Star Trek movies.
I think we’re doing an incredible job with them.”
“Star” is owned by CBS Films, which will release the film on Blu-ray and DVD.
