Quotes

– “Listen, if I were to get married on May the fourth, it would totally be Star Wars themed. It has to be.”

– “When you think about it, the conventional storytelling tropes up to that point would have been like, oh, we have to rescue the princess and be the heroes and do it all with heroic flair and stuff like that. And no, it’s a completely chaotic mess, their whole rescue plan.”

– “I thought it was really interesting when I read that the reason why they killed Obi-Wan was because Alec Guinness didn’t want to do the entire movie and have to come back in sequels if there were potentially sequels.” 

– “Most people know the phrase, may the force be with you. And everyone claims that it’s Obi-Wan Kenobi that says it, but he actually never says that quote.”

“It is a big old battle. The Emperor, meanwhile, is trying to convince Luke and wants Luke to kill Vader and to give in to his anger and to basically become what his father was.”

“Yeah. Um, which to me, kind of tells me that George Lucas, when he wrote the first movie, he wasn’t really thinking about sequels per se.”
