George Lucas: Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist...
Time

Interesting that they spelled Wookiee right. Kenner wasn’t the largest toy company at the time, (that was probably Mattel) and their biggest success before 1977 was The Six Million Dollar Man line, but Star Wars is what really raised their profile.
The quote about sequels and letting other directors interpret Star Wars in their own way is fascinating in today’s context.

And funny how THX 1138 is described as non-cultish, which isn’t the case now. 😉

Rogue One without CGI Peter Cushing test footage
Time

With all the footage they must have of Cushing in the vault, I’m surprised they didn’t go the Superman Returns route. I totally get the vibe you’re going for here. Reminds me how they didn’t show Blofeld’s face in the early 007 films. Keeping a similar air of mystery around Tarkin and Leia works for me.
I really like Threepio and Artoo being there in the final scene. Makes much more sense than seeing them at the base! 😃

I thought Jabba was well developed for a slimy piece of worm ridden filth. 😉

If it had been Gene Roddenberry directing, he’d have gone on a tangent about how the Hutts reproduce.

Well, Gene did give us a race of bald humanoids who have to take an oath of celibacy to serve in Starfleet. 😉
