Tomorrow night 7:30 on channel 9

George does a promotional interview for his latest
in the new SW films... Ooooh more secrets revealed....

What a pity the last two films were nowhere near a patch on
the original trilogy?

Howcome he never saw fit to use the original writers from the
original trilogy?

George Lucas wrote ANH himself, but TESB was co-written with Leigh Brackett
and Lawrence Kasdan and ROTJ was also co-written with Kasdan.

FWIW, Leigh Brackett turned in the first draft of TESB (her cover page
reads: STAR WARS SEQUEL) in February of 1978 before dying of cancer
weeks later on March 24th.

While she wrote her script from story notes and telephone interviews
with Lucas, none (I repeat NONE!) of her contributions were utilized in
subsequent drafts or the final script. I've read her script and
although I'm a big Brackett fan (in 2002 I published a 500-page book of
her earliest stories), her screenplay is pretty bad.

Lucas enjoyed working with Brackett and wanted her name on the film and
he ensured that her estate would benefit from the finished product.
I've read a letter written by Richard C. Jones, then-attorney for
Brackett's estate and he is effusive on how above-board and reputable
Lucas is.

was good, but I was disappointed that Lucas said he has worked so hard all
his life that he can now sit back and make failures and he doesn't care.

Darth Sidious eventually becomes Emperor Palpatine, Anakin and Amidala
have two kids, Anakin turns to the Dark Side and basically becomes
Palpatine's right-hand man and they rule the galaxy with an iron fist.

Much later, Anakin's son joins some kind of rebelion or something, but
that's another story...

And that quote in context was actually his belief that he has earned the
right to make films that will be failures "in comparison with the Star Wars
blockbusters" ie. small independent films.

So who was the guy in the senate in TPM?????
I always thought he was Palpatine?
In fact they even called him Senator Palpatine....

So how can Palpatine be Darth Siddious?

Is this the planet Stygia????

I mean they must get Stygian crystals from somewhere. That's what
powers the weapons in Darth Maul's ship in TPM

And saying something is Stygian is also a hell reference

This wasn't mentioned in the film itself though was it? Its just another
reference dreamed up by fans intent on identifying and providing pages of
back story for aliens and machinery on screen for approximately 2.3 seconds.

What was with the fan art picture at the introduction of the segment,
it was awful ...Did 60 minutes really think that was a real Ep3 image?

Well that info came from a Cross Section book which was printed
based on blueprints from one of the creators of the ships in TPM so
it wasn't a fan based idea..

As close to fan-wank as to make no difference then.
