The Wes Anderson Star Wars Trailer & Cast Are Too Good To Be True (Thanks To AI)

l intro 1711721007

Other headliners in the Wes Anderson-directed Star Wars flick include Scarlett Johansson as Leia. She’s worked with the director on “Isle of Dogs” and “Asteroid City.”  Johansson’s “Asteroid City” character was inspired by an old Hollywood starlet, which makes sense considering Anderson’s aesthetic has always been rooted in the past. That’s immediately apparent from the AI Star Wars trailer, as the visuals follow that approach. There’s a simplistic, relaxed aura to the video, proving that Star Wars doesn’t need hi-fi special effects and spectacle to tell a story in a galaxy far, far away. 

A minimalistic, auteur-focused spin on Star Wars would be a breath of fresh air. And if actors like Timotheé Chalamet, Edward Norton, and Willem Dafoe (who are all in the trailer) were to join the franchise, it would be an exciting day for fans. Unfortunately, it seems highly unlikely that Disney would greenlight such a bold take. Beyond that, Anderson has never expressed interest in joining franchise fare, as signaled by his various indie pictures throughout the years. His tenacity to stick to his guns is why he’s probably able to assemble star-studded, A-list heavy ensembles consistently, despite his films not making out-of-this-world money. 

For what it’s worth, Johnasson and Jason Schwartzman enjoy the small things about working with Anderson, including his uncompromising creative vision and the joy he exudes on set.
