The series of interviews continues: Earlier today, Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette published a fresh interview with Craig McCracken!
Mr. McCracken, now 42, a self-described “Star Wars” kid who grew up in the 1970s, said the sci-fi backdrop gives him freedom to take Wander and crew anywhere.
“It allows us to be as creative as we want to be,” he said. “Wander can meet anybody and go anywhere.”
If Wander is the free spirit, Sylvia is the character designed to help get Wander back on track.
“The other reason we made Sylvia so tough is I wanted Wander to be nonviolent, not hurting anyone with no malicious intent,” he said, “but because they’re being chased by Hater and the Watchdogs, we gave [the aggression] to Sylvia.”
