Kevin Feige will Lead a Star Wars Film! The Original Cast of Jurassic Park is back! But so what?

by James Murphy

Thursday thought for the day: Just because you could, does not mean you should!

So news broke yesterday: Feige joining Star Wars.

And Sam, Laura and Jeff all rejoining Jurassic Park/World/Universe.

Great! I know you are excited. And it MIGHT be all as rewarding as the excitement of the headlines.

 

BUT: Notes of caution..

1: Kevin’s expertise = Marvel. Marvel movies. Marvel product. He is as yet relatively untested in other media properties. So his Midas touch from Marvel might not commute to the Jedi!

2: ANYTIME we put great faith in one particular Star Wars regime..it disappoints. JJ, Rian, Kathleen: all perfectly competent imho. But it’s been neither the warm hearted satisfaction nor bold visionary surprising head start we might have expected. 

3: Jeff was IN Fallen Kingdom. FOR TWO SECONDS. Despite his being integral to marketing. We have been conned before: these could be mere cameos! 

4: Sam /Laura: great actors. FAR happier and indeed better in non franchise fare? Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm is a ‘character’ who can win our curiosities. Doctors Grant /Saddler..less so!

5: Shared Universe fever? Kevin Feige mastered the idea of inter-related, connected properties. But that idea might not work with Star Wars..same way we don’t really get a tingle at the idea of a Jurassic teams union..though yeah Chris Pratt with Jeff Goldblum..VERY very cool indeed!

 

So: Have a great Thursday and enjoy the new bits of..er..news. Look forward..optimistic yet cautious, all the same! 

‘Life finds a way!’
