ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY Writer Gary Whitta Would Really Like to Make a STAR FOX Animated Film
Mechanic: Bartosz Sobczak
Category: Video Game Movies
There's no denying that the Star Fox series has seen better days, but at least one person on this planet would like to restore its former glory — and if that person is a co-writer of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, then the situation gets a whole lot more interesting.
Writer Gary Whitta — the artist we're talking about — is a big fan of video games, as he helped Telltale Games shape the main story of The Walking Dead, The Walking Dead: 400 Days and The Walking Dead: The Final Season.
In response to Raf Grassetti's wonderful Star Fox art, Whitta wrote on Twitter: "I want to write this animated movie." Given that he has a history of writing for both games and movies, his Star Fox would definitely be worth a closer look — and the experience Whitta gained working on Rogue One could significantly impact the production.
As a reminder, Fox McCloud is playable in the Switch version of Ubisoft Toronto's Starlink: Battle for Atlas.
Unfortunately, Nintendo doesn't have any official plans to continue the once-popular Star Fox game series — and their only upcoming video game movie is Illumination's adaptation of Super Mario Bros.
