I've always felt that really good prequels should be original movies.
The fun thing about doing origin stories is you are introducing the audience to characters.
Good twists are enormously hard to come by, and I think the best ones are earned ones. The idea that a story can take a left turn on you, it's easy to do, but it has to be done very, very carefully, or else you risk losing the audience's trust.
I love finding new creative partnerships but then continuing the partnerships I'm already in.
I've always been fascinated by Disneyland and Disney World, and my favorite part of the park was always Tomorrowland.
I believe that this idea of story or myth or this thing that Joseph Campbell writes about is sort of an inter-connective spiritual force - like The Force in 'Star Wars' - where it doesn't matter where you were raised, or what your background is, there are certain elements of story that totally appeal to you.
