Director Colin Trevorrow is planning to shoot Star Wars: Episode IX on film. He spoke about this during a press conference at the Sundance Film Festival with Christopher Nolan.
“The only place where I tend to not be able to attach myself entirely to something shot digitally is when it’s a period film. There’s something in my brain that goes, ‘Well, they didn’t have video cameras then,’ [Film] tends to remind us of our memories, of our childhoods, the way we used to see films… I could never shoot Star Wars on anything but [film] because it’s a period film: It happened a long time ago!”
J.J. Abrams shot The Force Awakens on film, and Rian Johnson will shoot Episode VIII on film.
Trevorrow asked Lucasfilm and Disney if he could shoot parts of the film on location… in outer space!
“I asked the question, ‘Is it possible for us to shoot IMAX film plates in actual space for Star Wars, and I haven’t gotten an answer yet, but they’ve shot IMAX in space!”
If he really be able to afford the shootings in real space that will be amazing, even more it is a technical challenge to shoot in space – what do you think about that?
