“I ate them! I ate them all!!” – SWR #30

Welcome back to the Star Wars Report podcast!

On this episode of the Star Wars Report, we talked a little bit about the last episode, and fallout from the RANT OF DOOM! (It wasn’t really a rant of doom, but I’ve always wanted to use the word ‘doom’ in one of these posts. Also, beware clicking on the fiery image of doom below, something might happen!)

We also talked about goal setting, and some of our goals for the Star Wars Report.

We mentioned Ewan McGregor’s surprise upon learning that the Phantom Menace was being re-released in 3D.

Sam Witwer was a zombie soldier in The Walking Dead!?

Sadly, Bob Anderson died at the age of 89, after contributing to some of the best known movie franchises in the world.

On a more upbeat note, the world has gone to the dogs, and the dogs have gone to the Bark Side!

This episode of craziness is brought to you by Toy Hutt! Your source for great Star Wars toys and action figures, games and more!

We admired two different Barriss Offee figures.

Then we discussed Underworld!

Um no, not that one. Star Wars: Underworld, the oft mentioned Star Wars live action series that’s in the works! (Which also shares the name of a little known Star Wars comic made back in the early 2000s.)

George Lucas retires? Or does he?

And finally, we discuss the burgers of the dark side, and much hilarity ensues. Thank you Eric for pointing out this story and the comments! And a thank you to all listeners who email us, we really appreciate it!

George Lucas Retiring? (Read, “Plans to make other movies.”)

I just read an interesting report that the New York Daily News did at a private dinner party that George Lucas attended.

Discussing Red Tails, and some troubles Lucas had getting the film made, among other things was also a brief discussion of the filmmaker’s plans to retire.

“I hate to say it, but basically I’m retiring,” said Lucas.

And later he spoke of the fact that now he can make movies for his own enjoyment, instead of having to “have to worry about entertaining people.”

I’m thinking this means he’ll make more movies, but not necessarily ones that will be box office smash hits, or big budget Hollywood films. What do you think?
