Margaret Atwood claims Star Wars 'inspired 9/11 terrorists'



Margaret Atwood is the author of dystopian classic The Handmaid’s Tale

In Denmark in 2000, the stage production of The Handmaid’s Tale featured faked footage of various famous buildings being blown up, including the Twin Towers. Following the 9/11 attacks the following year, the footage was removed. 

"They didn’t get that idea from my opera, don’t worry. They got the idea from Star Wars. Remember the first one? Two guys fly a plane in the middle of something and blow that up? The only difference is, in Star Wars, they get away. Right after 9/11, they hired a bunch of Hollywood screenwriters to tell them how the story might go next. Sci-fi writers are very good at this stuff, anticipating future events. They don’t all come true, but there are interesting ‘what if’ scenarios.”
