He said a lot of things but he said that after the fact I think. Not during the creation period.

I know. That was my point.

I’m pulling for you.



And a sincere thanks to you for keeping at me about reading these. I thought I knew the whole story and background story and difficulties these films and those involved went through. I knew nothing. I finished the first book last night and immediately watched a new hope and truly saw it with completely new eyes and respect and awe. It's incredible the gargantuan work that went into even the quickest shot up to the overall and the sound and music and never ending legal drama. It's beyond a miracle a new hope ever managed to make it onto a screen in front of a paying audience. Just floored and thankful for George's determination and doggedness despite his vision being totally compromised. Sad that he still isn't satisfied with it. But maybe his vision had it made it on screen would have left us all cold. I think a balance was found in the making and it worked out the best way out could have and for all our benefits.

Can't wait to get into the empire book.


Yeah. This series opens up a LOT of information. Not only in the creative process but production-wise, financial, really all aspects of how a movie gets made. And it really blows to hell the revisionist idea that the whole saga (Lucas-wise) is the story of Anakin Skywalker.


Really does. I scored the ROTJ this morning too. Drawing the line there. No interest in getting the prequel books at all.

Holy shit! Look at you go!

AFAIK, there’s only one for REVENGE. I’ve not seen any for the other two. It’s written completely different than the OT books, tho. I can’t get into it at all.

Yeah I've seen it and some art books for the prequels. No interest in doing them tbh. These three will be treasures.

Sadly we'll never see the TFA or rogue one book he was working on.
He seems to have had a dramatic parting of ways with LFL
