Jon Stewart will interview George Lucas again at Star Wars Celebration V

06.17.2010

Back in January, noted STAR WARS geek Jon Stewart interviewed George Lucas on "The Daily Show", and the host is getting another shot at the intergalactic mastermind in a much bigger forum.

In fact, it's literally the main event at the fifth STAR WARS Celebration, being held August 12-15 in Orlando: "The hour-long, candid conversation will spark a discourse sure to shed light on the storied history of the STAR WARS Saga". Find out all the details and a list of the guests and events (including ROBOT CHICKEN and the one-man saga) at the official site, where fans can also submit their own questions for Lucas.

You can check out the original Stewart/Lucas interview below. And for the hell of it, here's the first appearance of Boba Fett (in animated form) from the infamous STAR WARS Christmas Special.

It never fails to surprise me how Lucas can be somewhat annoyed or letdown by his own franchise. He's always complaining or in a bad mood...like he had some bigger, better vision in his head but it got destroyed by a third party. Unlike a lot of other directors, Lucas has almost 100% control over Star Wars and its related screen projects...so technically he's just an emo nutjob who's angry at himself for being such a blatant dumbass. I mean seriously, who's he mad at all the time? Lucas gets

I still believe that STAR WARS succeeded because Lucas surrounded himself with very talented artists, designers and FX people. And the reason EMPIRE is so good is because he had others involved in the story.

See if you can track down his original script "Adventures of Luke Starkiller, as taken from the Journal of the Whills, Saga I: The Star Wars" to see what might have been...

Lucas is worse than Cameron

You'd think Lucas would be more grateful for what he has, but the dude just seems arrogant and it's either his way or no way.
