Lowery is a really skilled filmmaker, having directed acclaimed movies reminiscent of “The Inexperienced Knight,” “A Ghost Story,” and “The Previous Man and The Gun” throughout the final handful of years. However Lowery can be skilled in the case of big-budget filmmaking, having directed 2016’s “Pete’s Dragon” for Disney, as nicely because the upcoming “Peter Pan & Wendy.” The jury continues to be out on his new live-action tackle “Peter Pan,” but it surely’s his 2016 effort that makes this information all of the extra attention-grabbing.
Disney has made fairly a couple of live-action remakes of its previous classics. A few of them are fairly good, like “Cinderella,” whereas others have been not-so-good, like final 12 months’s “Pinocchio.” However “Pete’s Dragon” stands out as arguably the most effective of the bunch as a genuinely nice movie that goes far past what anybody may count on from a company nostalgia play from an organization like Disney. So if Lowery can do one thing as nice as he did with “Pete’s Dragon,” one can solely think about what he may be capable of do with “Star Wars.” It is nonetheless early and seeing a trailer for the present might be extra telling, however it is a good signal.
“Skeleton Crew” doesn’t but have a launch date set.
