The "Star Wars 9" Director, Colin Trevorrow has revealed that the sequel of "Star Wars 8" will be captured in film. With Trevorrow's statement, the patrons of the hit movie speculated that the 9th installment of "Star Wars" will be filmed in outer space.
According to Hollywood Reporter, it was during the Sundance Film Festival panel when "Star Wars 9" Director Colin Trevorrow has revealed that the "Star Wars 8" sequel will be shot on film. The panel was entitled; "Power of Story: The Art of Film" and Trevorrow is along with Christopher Nolan and Rachel Morrison, and moderated by Alex Ross Perry.
"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,'" Trevorrow stated "[Film] tends to remind us of our memories, of our childhoods, the way we used to see films" he further added.
It can also be remembered that the "Star Wars 9" Director shot its previous movie; the "Jurassic World" on film because of his belief that the movie should not look like two computers fighting. Trevorrow further clarified that he could never shoot "Star Wars 9" on anything but because it's a period film wherein it occurred a long time ago.
Meanwhile, the "Star Wars 9" is expected to be captured on film; The Guardian has learned that the franchise producers, Lucasfilm, declined to re-form Princess Leia digitally. Based on a post which was entitled "A Statement Regarding New Rumors," the film franchise's official website has put to rest the speculations that the avid patrons of "Star Wars" will see a CGI Leia in the last movie. The post stated that the producers assured the patrons of the movie that it has no plans of recreating Carrie Fisher's role as Princess or General Leia Organa digitally.
With "Star Wars 9' Director Colin Trevorrow revealed that the movie will be captured in film, many suggest that the "Star Wars 8" sequel might be shot in outer space. Nevertheless, these are just based on assumptions so it is still advised to be taken with a pinch of salt.
