D23 Expo continues to bring news from every corner of the galaxy as we continue to unpack all the news and reveals from this amazing bi-annual event. Laughing Place had the good fortune to sit down with Lucasfilm Story Group creative executive Matt Martin, ILMxLAB’s creative development and experience design supervisor Jose Perez III, and Vader Immortal director Ben Snow and discuss Vader Immortal and it’s second chapter.
Mike Celestino, Laughing Place: Matt, I want to start with you because I feel like a lot of people have been curious what exactly the Story Group does, so while I have you here…
Matt Martin: I’ll do the best I can. I’m not going to get into the inner workings of it, but the idea is that we work across various mediums to try to keep Star Wars as interconnected as possible. We work, in a way, like traditional film development, only we’re doing it across all kinds of different platforms. We have a team of people, and there’s some people like Pablo [Hidalgo], Leland [Chee], Emily [Shkoukani], and myself that are all a little bit more on the continuity side of things, and then we have other people that do more traditional development. It’s kind of all over the place, but in the end we’re kind of the central Star Wars hub for anybody at Lucasfilm that needs Star Wars info or direction.
Our very own Fantha on the ground Martin Keeler also interviewed Matt, Jose and Ben about Vader Immortal and that will be coming very soon to Making Tracks.
