THE SLIGHTLY PERVERTED NATURE OF STAR WARS - A MESSAGE TO BOOK WRITERS AND COMIC CREATORS

Relax guys, this post will be brief and entertaining. And despite the heading, I wanted to focus upon the importance of writing and creating fully fleshed out stories, before new ideas are pushed forth into various channels of the media. There are several comic artists / writers and creators that follow this blog. I wanted to encourage you guys and tell you to never give up on your dreams. Additionally, if George Lucas could make it and have a blockbuster franchise, then that is proof that hard work really does pay off.
 
Now onto the main issue at hand; George probably did not focus on his overall series writing / the entire story idea development, when he started filming his original 3-part sci fi saga.
The reason I say this is because there has always been an underlying trail of confusion and bewilderment in the minds of Star Wars fans, when they saw Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back [circa 1980] and right after that, there was Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, presented in 1983.
 
The thing is, in the 1980's movie, Luke and Leia get to make-out / swap spit, kiss etc. And in the very next movie, George Lucas had the balls to let everyone know that Luke and Leia were brother and sister....... WTF??? Well that's the sort of thing that happens when a saga isn't fully written and fleshed out, before the ball gets rolling on a movie.

Hate to make this comparison, but video game fans from the 90s are aware of the blockbuster video game franchise called Street Fighter [Hadoooken!!!]. Yes, that brings back lots of memories from the SNES days. But honestly, all the guys who played that game in the 90s are fully aware that there has NEVER been a good Street Fighter Movie - and one of the reasons for this is that the original SF concept was never fleshed out fully, in order to create a linear story that could be placed in a book, or even in a film. Street Fighter almost falls more into a "Choose Your own Adventure" tale, rather than a "feature film" tale. Hence, the concepts of the Street Fighter characters are cool, but they are just not coherent.

The point is, as a writer / creator, you need to take your time and create strong foundations for your characters. This will ensure that future conversions [from comics to cartoons, or from books to movies, etc] will flow smoothly. And that will make things easier for you and for those that license your ideas. And most importantly, it will keep you from making your "Luke and Leia" to passionately kiss each other :)
