Legendary screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, has stated his opinion that “Star Wars is its own genre”. He made the comment in a recent interview with Wired, where he goes on to say “It’s not really science fiction. It’s really something on its own, fantasy and myth and science fiction and Flash Gordon and Akira Kurosawa all mixed up together… It can be anything you want it to be.” But it does follow a subtle warning from George Lucas himself, who hopes that “The Force doesn’t get muddled into a bunch of gobbledygook”.

Kasdan, who co-wrote the screenplay for The Force Awakens, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, in addition to an upcoming untitled Han Solo prequel movie, recently announced that the latter film will be his last Star Wars project.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released in the UK on December 17th and in the US on the following day.
