Last weekend marked the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars. As these History Channel clips show, Trek XI producer and director JJ Abrams is a fan of both ‘Star’ franchises
Trek XI co-producer Damon Lindelof is also a big time Star Wars fan. In fact Abrams says he knew he would like Lindelof because when they were first introduced Lindelof was wearing a Star Wars t-shirt. As part of their 30th anniversary coverage, Geek Monthly magazine talked to a number of celebrities about Star Wars and what it meant to them. Here is Lindelof had to say…
The only way my parents could get me into the bathtub was by convincing me it was a trash compactor. Every night, I would splash around as if something was trying to grab my ankle and pull me under. But hey, at least I got clean!
…and on what Star Wars character would best be suited for the island on Lost…
As Sawyer is already pretty much channeling Han Solo and the droids would quickly run out of power, I’d go for Chewie as being the most useful character to get stranded on ‘Lost.’ Nothing beats a nice, big Wookiee when mysterious people are constantly trying to kill you. Also, you can make coats and blankets out of their fur to keep you warm at night.
VOTE in the latest poll – So are you a Star Wars fan too?
big thanks to Rick Kelvington for the video clips
