When did Lucas's car accident happen? Was it before the original SW?
I believe it happened when he was a teenager.
Ironically, George, Harrison and Mark Hamill all had pretty severe car accidents. Harrison's created the scar on his chin. Mark's occurred during TESB I believe
And didn't Mark's accident mess up his face too?
Yeah, I think that was what they used for Wampa damage.
I remember when I was kid thinking that Luke from ANH and Luke from TESB were different actors.
Makes you all wonder if Sith drives cars doesn't it.
Back on topic, fascinated to read the Dan Pollock found the story outlines for the sequel trilogy to be the most exciting of them all.
I'm sorry, who is Dan Pollock??
EDIT: No need to answer, just realized it was that Lucas biographer whose name is actually Dale, not Dan. Not trying to be a sarcastic bastard to
@Darth_Magus either, just didn't know who we were talking about
It happened during the winter of 77' (Jan. Feb.), during ANH post-production. Some of the pick-up shots in Death Valley were done with stand-in actors.
He was supposed to join the cast of "Eight is Enough," as the older brother, but then the car accident forced producers to recast. That show lasted three years, and Hamill could have had a very different career if not for the car accident.
That's a good thought!
Yeah, I hope the ST doesn't go the way of St. Peter "The Great" Jackson's "Hobbit" movies too.
Smaug would like a word with you.
had to be done
Fine. I'll blow his god-awful cartoony CGI a** clean away WITHOUT using lens flares.
And T-R-, that screen still doesn't line up with the "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" you're snarking about.
In this Rebels Report interview, The Clone Wars writer Brent Friedman reveals about 37 minutes in, that the story Episode VII came directly from George Lucas, and that they will closely follow his treatment. I figured that since Friedman is an LFL employee, he'd know the inner workings of the studio, and he seems very confident that they are sticking faithfully to Lucas' ideas for Episode VII and other spinoffs.
Sounds like good news to me.
All I can say is...
That's... good news.
This is Lucas passing on what he has learned.
His treatment said "this takes place some time later, in a galaxy far, far away.."
They will follow it slavishly.
