We now know that the man, the myth, the legend behind the Star Wars empire, the creator himself, George Lucas is or could be one the first people not involved in the production of Rogue One to see the finished product. Which is pretty cool!
At the recent press conference for Rogue One, director Gareth Edwards revealed that George Lucas has now seen his movie, and it sounds like Lucas enjoyed it.
“Two days ago we got to show George the movie, and we all had a phone call and I got to speak with him yesterday, and I don’t want to put words into his mouth, but I can honestly say that I can die happy now. He really liked the movie. It meant a lot. To be honest, and no offense to anyone here, it was the most important review to me. You know, you guys are important too, but he’s kind of god… I will take that conversation to my grave. His opinion means the world to me.”
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
