Ever since Gareth Edwards was announced as the director of the upcoming “Star Wars” spinoff (all of several hours ago), fans have been trying to guess at who the film will be about. Boba Fett? Young Han Solo? That scary little guy who sits on Jabba’s lap*?
The answer, when you think about it, is pretty obvious. Edwards’ first two movies, “Monsters” and “Godzilla,” focus on huge, destructive, but sympathetic creatures.
Yup, that’s right. Edwards should direct “Star Wars: Rancor.”
Wouldn’t you watch a prequel about the monster from “Return of the Jedi” fighting a bunch of other huge monsters, before he’s captured by Jabba the Hutt, forms a close bond with his trainer, and meets a tragic end (sorry, spoilers)? Yeah, we know you would.
And just to prove to you how awesome that would be, we mashed up a trailer to prove it to you.
It’s enough to bring a tear to your eye.
