George Lucas And His Beard Discuss ‘Star Wars’ In 3D And The Delayed Live-Action TV Show

Whoever bet that he wouldn't have a beard and a plaid shirt in this interview owes me five bucks. George Lucas seems to move more slowly than other directors. Perhaps that's because his projects are more widely anticipated than everyone else's. Or maybe it's because he actually moves more slowly than anyone else. In this interview with G4's"Attack of the Show," Lucas discusses what the hold up is for "Star Wars: The Adventures Continue," and why he wasn't ready to convert the six Star Wars films to 3D...until now. As for the TV show, Lucas has 50 hours of the arc crafted, but is just waiting for production costs to become way, way, way cheaper. Like a tenth of what they are for films. So that could be a minute. Essentially, he says he plans on doing it, but stop holding your breath, because it won't happen soon. As for the 3D discussion, he says he's ready to convert for a February 10 release date for Episode I. Without getting too specific, he says he was waiting for the technology to be there, and now it's there. So it's on its way and looking good, by all accounts. If you thought Jar-Jar was up in your face before (metaphorically), wait until you see him in 3D when he's really up in your face! LITERALLY! I'm gonna go lay down. I feel sick.

I Could Stare At This Picture Of The Fake George Lucas All Day Long

He's as good as the real thing. Ok. The picture is pretty much the punchline, and we've spoiled that, but let's spend a second giving credit where credit is due. The guy playing George Lucas is Josh Robert Thompson. He's an impressionist who's done Lucas for years. He went to the Star Wars fan convention and picked a fight with one of his own creations, and held up signs that defended his revisionist assertion that Greedo shot first. It's all pretty damn funny, if only because Lucas is a funny dude. I think that this guy better watch himself at these conventions, because for every fan that loves him, there's probably another one that wants to hurt him for the digital tinkering of the show. (A.V.

'Star Wars' Vs. 'Mad Max' Looks Like The Most Exciting Film

I'd watch that. When making Mad Max: Fury Road, director George Miller opted to shoot practically and keep the use of computer-generated effects to a minimum. Too bad. He could have had spaceships in it if he had. This mash up, Road Wars: The Imperator Strikes Back, does so to great effect by adding TIE fighters, Darth Vader, and the Millenium Falcon. It effectively makes a case for why Mad Max must fight space invaders at some point. It's totally enjoyable. But it would have been nice to see a guitar that shoots lasers at some point. Perhaps in the Special Edition??


'Moves Like Jabba' Music Video

Take that, Maroon 5! Do you like the Maroon 5 song, Moves Like Jagger? Well, the song is stupid and so are you for liking it. But what's not stupid is this new Star Wars-themed parody video, Moves Like Jabba. Well, actually, it's stupid too, but in a good way, like the characters from Dumb & Dumber or that big guy from Of Mice and Men. Ha! He killed the friggen rabbit! What a moron! Yes, there have been many Star Wars/Jabba the Hut parodies, but to my knowledge, none of them have featured Wilford Brimley. And that, my friends, is a game changer.
