    Interesting.

    I once heard a rumor that Lucas wanted Mifune to play Obi Wan. That would have made a good casting choice, but at the same time, I couldn't imagine that role without Guiness.

    I've read that, as well, and IIRC, in one of the commentaries Lucas says he wanted Mifune to be in the original movie. Supposedly Mifune turned it down because he thought it was going to be a kids movie.

    Tsk.

    Worked out ok, though.

    I think that if it wasn't for all of the input from the talented people that Lucas surrounded himself with back in the day, the classic Star Wars movies would have been a lot more like the prequels than what they turned out to be. In other words, if his original vision had been allowed to run its course, the movies would have been flops.

    I agree. Got no problem with it. He seems like a good choice.

    Seems like a good choice. Seems like a safe choice. I guess I shouldn't expect anything else. They need to get the franchise back on it's legs again. Hopefully Disney will be a bit more creative with all the projects they spin from the main body. He is going to have to work pretty hard to distance it from his Trek flicks though. That's my only real concern. Oof...one thing they got right, his 'mums the word' policy as far as spoilers will fuel the excitement more than the actual movie will.
