Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was very highly regarded by Star Wars fans, giving writer Gary Whitta quite a following. Many are eager to see what Whitta does next, and if he has things his way, he'll be helming a Star Fox animated feature.
God of War Art Director Raf Grassetti has been paying tribute to the Star Fox series lately with multiple pieces of art featuring the Star Fox Team. Those tributes caught the eye of Whitta, who took to Twitter to state that he wants to write the animated movie based on those depictions.
Obviously Grassetti is on board with the idea. Now all that needs to happen is approval from Nintendo...which sadly will likely never happen. Oh well, at least there's some big-name interest out there!
