Comic-Con is over, but there will still be little pieces of news slithering out from people being interviewed. One such story is an interview with Guillermo del Toro, who revealed to Yahoo that he would love to make a Star Wars film, and base it around Jabba the Hutt and how he came to be who he is.
Del Toro talked of the film being in the tradition of The Godfather, and who follow Jaba’s rise to one of the most feared galactic gangsters. While del Toro stresses that this is simply him talking out loud, and that his idea is never likely to happen, we can only dream and imagine just how fecking awesome a Jabba the Hutt origin story would be, especially if it was directed by del Toro.
If you would like to get all excited about the prospects of this film, then check out what del Toro had to say:
“This is not real —this is me as a fat geek just geeking out and talking about it,” he told Yahoo Movies. “I would do the sort of ‘Godfather’ saga [about what] Jabba the Hutt had to go through to gain control. One, because it’s the character that looks the most like me, and I like him. I love the idea of a Hutt type of mafia, a very complex coup. I just love the character.”
Disney, seriously, are you listening to this? We are all listening, and this would be incredible, please make it happen!
