Since the new canon interpretation of Star Wars Expanded Universe was discarded. This is not considered as by all means to George Lucas’s LucasFilm story group. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is based on groundbreaking Graphic novel, it is still better than any other Star Wars sequel trilogy in film cinematography. “Valerian” brings the best Star Wars film out of for the Film Festival in the year of 2017 and later on in future for Hollywood film fest.
“This upcoming film (scheduled to be released in July 2017) is based on the French comic series Valerian and Laureline, a series published from 1967 to 2010 and was also a major influence on the original Star Wars saga.”
Most of the original Star Wars saga and the Expanded Universe are considered to be dead towards the new canon representative interpretation of Lucasfilm storyline. Even though the Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets are not considered to be part of George Lucas’s story writing ideas, however it still beats out the idea that of the Original Expanded Universe was put in mind.
