TCW: Interview With Christian Taylor

Posted By Eric on March 6, 2011

CNET's Daniel Terdiman recently interviewed Christian Taylor, head writer on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. During the conversation, Taylor discussed his meetings with George Lucas, the way TCW connects several generations of Star Wars fans, and more.

Here's a particularly interesting question and response from the interview:

What prepared you to write for this universe that so many people hold so dear?
Taylor: I think one of the reasons I've succeeded is that I know "Star Wars" well but am not a fan as such. I really have no understanding or comprehension of the entire universe that is the books, comics, video games, etc. I know the movies and love the characters. That would be a lot to live up to and would confuse my brain. I write from character and always try to be sincere and true and emotional when writing them. I have no idea what droid is called what...there are far better people to audit that. Writing in such a beloved universe is like standing on a cliff's edge. If you look down and see all the fans you'd lose your nerve and get serious writers block.

Check out the full interview on CNET's Geek Gestalt blog!
