"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas

I do hope this will be an unofficial docu-series - and therefore less likely to contain the ‘official lines’ or possible restrictions from Lucasfilm or Disney - especially in regards to omitting certain people who have been ‘written out’ of the official history of Star Wars (or had their contributions overlooked or downplayed).
 

Though very much looking forward to hearing more about the series.

I thought I read somewhere that Kasdan has had enough of Star Wars and wanted to do other things? I’m happy he has changed his mind. This could be be a welcome documentary series from someone actually there at the time.
