Rinzler Digs Into ‘The Star Wars’

Comic Book Resources posted an interview with writer J.W. Rinzler on his upcoming series The Star Wars. There’s some interesting details revealed in this one.

“Jedi General Luke Skywalker is the mastermind, the only one who always sees the big picture — and who is not afraid to get his hands dirty and light up his lazersword. Annikin Starkiller is the brash youth, whose heart is in the right place, but who’s a little rough around the edges and not above flirting with the general’s female aides — until he meets Princess Leia. The droids are a little bit more like the peasants in Kurosawa’s ‘Hidden Fortress,’ in that both of them speak and squabble, so we have a more literal idea of what’s going on in [R2D2]’s mind. Together, by about the mid-point in the series, they constitute a kind of dirty dozen team: Jedi, princess (and princes), droids, rebels…as they rise up to fight the Empire’s bloody invasion of their planet — and a dark Sith Knight.” -J.W. Rinzler
