Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]
Is there any connection or coincidence to the Krell in Skyward, versus the Krell from Forbidden Planet?
Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]
Yes. Forbidden Planet is one of my favorite movies. Perhaps my favorite classic science fiction movie. I really dig any sort of Shakespearean interpretation in another medium. So I named the Krell after the Krell from Forbidden Planet.
