The fan-made concept video for Quentin Tarantino’s “Star Wars” is an intriguing idea, filled with references and nods to the writer-director’s unique storytelling quirks. The “Star Wars” pitch ends with Samuel L. Jackson’s narrator discussing how all three “timelines” or chapters would collide by the end, leaving it up to the viewer to imagine what the film’s third act would look like.
What makes the video particularly intriguing is how it reinterprets the “Star Wars: A New Hope” template in a way that only the Oscar winner could pull off. From turning the meek Luke Skywalker into a vengeful, kung-fu-proficient Jedi, to making Emperor Palpatine a film buff obsessed with watching “Tatooine Westerns on 35MM,” the video does an excellent job of channeling Tarantino’s vibe. Take note of the visuals too — the AI-created video is filled with unique takes on familiar “Star Wars” aesthetics. For example, the anxious C-3PO is depicted as a bad-ass droid with a gun.
Unfortunately, it’s all but unlikely that Tarantino will direct a “Star Wars” film, as he has his eyes set on “The Movie Critic,” which is reportedly set to be his tenth and final film. While concrete plot details regarding the film are minimal, it’s definitely not going to be a sci-fi flick, which is no doubt a disappointment to “Star Wars” fans. And per the comments, it’s clear that fans of the creative want to see him tackle the billion-dollar-grossing sci-fi franchise. “Somebody please make this happen and pay Quentin Tarantino, whatever his prices to do it!!!” wrote YouTube user @TheRTM.
