"Star Wars is very different to Marvel style. They know that the tone of the first films really should be kind of adhered to. That's what the fans like and you can't really disrespect it I guess is a nicer way of saying can't put too many jokes in. There's a bit, definitely my tone is in there, the dialogue and stuff like that."
