I was recently asked to prepare a post for the film fan site 'Moviepilot'. They wanted to feature my Star Wars cross-over art and I gratefully accepted!
I explain in my post how, imho, the vastness of the Star Wars universe makes it an ideal place for other sci-fi characters to visit. I also think that same scale and scope means it's good news that they've decided to make Star Wars spin-off movies because we'll get to see more of that universe.
Sadly, I don't expect to see Aliens or Predators feature in any of the movies (the licensing issues alone will see to that!) - but I do hope they focus on characters that the fans want to see more of - and I'd also like to see them take a more 'mature' approach to some of the movies...
