Think about it like this:
People make fan films of Star Wars all the time.
Now, a fan, who also happens to not only have sharpened his filmmaking skills over time, but his science fiction chops as well (though I could care less for Lost) is going to make a Star Wars fan film...
But he's being given LUCASFILM MONEY to do it.
Fans know exactly what they want.
Fans want more of the last thing they read and they liked.
That's what fans want. They liked that thing you did...
They would like another one of those, please.Neil Gaiman, British Author, interview in The People Vs. George Lucas
NOW. BOUT. HAMILL.
LET'S. GO. METS.
