Cool Videos: Check out this impressive pitch reel for a live action Star Wars television series

10.04.2013

With STAR WARS: EPISODE VII likely casting the offspring of Princess Leia and Han Solo, it seems only a matter of time before we see new characters wielding lightsabers and blasters. Whatever the case, director J.J. Abrams is promising a return to the visual style of the original trilogy and less CGI than the prequels. This new video that has appeared online seems to blend both the new and the old into a suprisingly cool little video.

The creator of this supposed pitch for a live action STAR WARS television series is Paul J. Alessi. Alessi is an actor and has appeared in minor roles in THE ITALIAN JOB and THE NEGOTIATOR. He put together this idea for continuing the STAR WARS storyline. The choreography and effects are pretty good despite looking a little too CGI for my tastes but nonetheless a very impressive project. Very impressive indeed.

We can still wonder as to exactly how the storyline for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will play out, but hopefully we get some sort of variation on Mr. Alessi's idea.

I'm sold if we get a fight scene for the Star Wars Kid.

If that was a pitch, it wasn't very good. I give all involved credit, for putting this together but they should have done more. It's way too short and they really didn't show anything except a really quick lightsaber battle. Anyone can put one of those together, just look at the ton of fan lightsaber battle videos on youtube. Speaking of which, I've seen a Darth Maul video better than this. If this is a fan video, then I say "good job." But if this is indeed a pitch, then I am unsold.

The camera work for the duel was brilliant. That style of editing really works well for this sequence.

Take it that was supposed to be Jaina Solo. I wonder if the new movies will follow the kids, even though the original cast is too old to have 15yr old kids.

I'd watch that

as others mentioned, the fight choreography was great and the backgrounds were impressive for a pitch reel. The girl was a block of wood but that's nothing a quick recast wouldn't fix.

Love how convincing the background looks, as well as the choreography which seems very consistent with the style established by Nick Gillard and the other stunt people who put together the lightsaber fights in the prequel trilogy. The girl does have something of a silly grin at the end though, but that's just me nitpicking really.

This looks cool

Doesn't overwhelm the senses, and focuses on what's important. This would be a nice setup for the series.
