FAIL: Rise of Skywalker Co-Writer Now Blames… George Lucas?

“Batman Vs. Superman might be George’s fault too.” ~Chris Terrio

 

 

 

 

 

That’s right.  The guy whose treatments for the Sequel Trilogy were thrown away is now somehow at fault for all of this.  Forbes writes:

 

Even co-writer Chris Terrio wishes that it had been two films, telling Awards Daily:

“I wish we could have done that. There is a lot of plot in the movie, and as a writer, you always want scenes to let the plot breathe more. If there were a way of doing it, splitting it would have been my dream. We could have written these characters forever. There was so much backstory that had to be left by the wayside. I wish that we could have that, but George always said it was nine movies. That was the natural size of the saga, and so, other than a few initial discussions, we never really advanced that conversation. Of course, as a writer, it breaks your heart to leave stuff on the table that you think would have given the story more depth and nuance and to give the characters more to do. Speaking for myself and not on the part of the studio, I do wish there could have been a “Part 1” and a “Part 2.””
