I just learned recently that Rick McCallum, the producer of the PT, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones and Red Tails, had retired form Lucasfilm (I don't think it was widely publicized, but see Steve Sansweet's appearance on the ForceCast for October 31, 2012 where he mentions it). Seeing that he was a producer on Redtails, I'm assuming that his retirement was after the release of the film, meaning sometime this year. Being that the deal between Lucasfilm and Disney had been in the works for sometime, as well as the plans for more films including the ST, I'm wondering why McCallum did not stay on to produce (I would be surprised if he didn't know about it before his retirement). Sure, GL hired Kathleen Kennedy, but was this to replace McCallum completely? Or Did Rick leave on his own accord and declined to be a producer for the ST? According to IMDB which doesn't exactly mean anything significant, he's still slated to produce the Live Action TV Series. Based on all dvd-extras, behind the scenes clips for which Rick was invovled, it *seems* as though he and GL had a great relationship and Rick enjoyed working on the films. Perhaps he just didn't want to be part of them. I'm not trying to start any PT or Rick hate, but just curious as to why Rick won't be invovled.
