Look Who’s Talking To J.J. [UPDATED]

 

UPDATE…and the caption contest winner is…Paul with:

George for the last time stop referring to me as your young Padawan!

This great photograph of Star Wars honcho George Lucas talking to Star Trek helmer J.J. Abrams was taken at a private dinner in August. No word on what they talked about, but Abrams is an admitted Star Wars fan and Lucas is said to be an admirer of the work of Gene Roddenberry.

UPDATE: Gene and George

This was not the first ‘summit meeting’ between Star Wars and Star Trek. Dan Madsen sends in this rare photo from the LucasFilm Fan Club Newsletter in 1987. The photo was taken at the 10th Anniversary Celebration of Star Wars

Lucas: I’ll let you have all the ILM effects work for free if you just explain what the hell is going on in “Lost”

“Look, I really am sorry, George, but we just don’t need ILM anymore. We’ve decided we want to go back to the original look and feel of The Original Series, and that means no CGI!”

Sweet! Now we just need a William Shatner/Harrison Ford fistfight, and all my dreams will have come true..

I think this was the dinner meeting where they discussed how Lucas’s Industrial Light & Magic could digitize a slimmer Shatner into the next Star Trek movie….

Abrams: “So you’re saying you held the crayon with your right hand just like that –”

Lucas: “Just like this…”

Abrams: “–and that’s how you wrote the Star Wars prequels?”

Lucas: “You got it.”

Abrams: “Incredible. And you made millions off those suckers…”

Lucas: “Billions.”

Abram – Wait a minute… You mean the only way ILM will do the effects is if I write a part for Jar Jar Binks?! Forget that. I can get a couple of ATM models on eBay for $50.

Abrams: “And you’re telling me the whole Star Wars saga came from one encounter with bad mushrooms….”
Lucas: “Scout ship’s honor!”

September 11, 2007 6:31 pm

“Seriously… Darth Vader built C3-PO?”

“Seriously… Romulans cloaned Picard?”

“I didn’t write that! But YOU did invent Ewoks.”

“Touché”

Lucas: “What’s the difference between Jabba the Hutt and an older Captain Kirk?
Abrams: “about forty pounds and an extra-large Starfleet uniform!”

J.J.: “You, George? We don’t even have enough room for Shatner!”

September 11, 2007 6:34 pm

“I’m excited about your new movie, J.J, but it’s just too bad the last show got cancelled…”

“Why’s that?”

“I had the perfect reveal for the ‘Future Guy’… would have been great!”

“Who’d you have in mind? Kirk? Spock? Maybe a Romulan?”

“Better than any of those… Jar Jar Binks!”

Harry Ballz
September 11, 2007 6:35 pm

Abrams: “O.K., it’s agreed……I’ll bring Kirk back from the dead if you pretend Jar Jar Binks NEVER happened……”

“Wait, wait. You mean Han shot first?”

William
September 11, 2007 6:37 pm

I vote for #15. But are you sure it is as much as 40 lbs?

September 11, 2007 6:38 pm

“Death Star!”

“Borg cube!”

“Death Star!”

“Borg cube!”

“Death Star has the most powerful generator in the Galaxy!”

“The Borg can adapt to the super laser and would assimilate the Death Star!”

“Palpatine could use the Dark Side and kill the Borg”

“One drone would have old Palpy p’wned!”

“You’re such a fan boy!”

“Oh yeah… well… loosersayswhat”

“What?”

“Exactly!”

Hey, at least Jabba never wore a girdle!!!!

“In Episode 6, Leia claims she can remember her mother”

“What’s your point?”

“In Episode 3, Leia clearly is too small an infant to remember anything, and Padme dies… WORST EPISODE EVER!”

September 11, 2007 6:42 pm

“Pull my finger!”

“I’d rather kiss a wookie!”

George: (Questionablely curious looks at J.J.)

J.J.: Look George you get the check this time. I don’t have the millions from 6 movies under my belt.

Oops. Obviously that should read “CRYSTAL Skull”!

I can’t come up with a caption as this picture sends a shudder down my spine that inteferes with my abilitiy to think clearly.

September 11, 2007 6:51 pm

“So, how many times can you re-do a thing before they stop buying it?”

StillKirok
September 11, 2007 6:51 pm

Lucas: That’s nice, but the movie would be much better if you include Shatner.

So let me get this straight…….Greedo shot first?

September 11, 2007 7:00 pm

That photo looks, I say looks doctored, Anthony. J.J. appears closer to the forefront than Lucas. Lucas seems like he’s looking to the right of J.J. They do not share eye contact.

Aaron R. (And when I stand before him to be judged of all my sins I know I wont have to worry cuzz Siskos my captain and Jesus is my #1!!!)
September 11, 2007 7:02 pm

JJ: So if you think Kirk is a go getter like Han Solo, Picard is smart like yoda, Sisko has the strength of will of will of Mace Winduu and Janeway is a powerful leader like Queen Amidalla what does that make all the other characters?

Lucas: I dont know but I know B4 is like Jar Jar Binks… Stupid, pointless, with a tendency to drag down the already weak storyline.

September 11, 2007 7:03 pm

“J.J., I relate to what you say about ‘Lost’ but my advice is not to sweat it. I didn’t have *shit* planned out when I wrote the first ‘Star Wars.'”

“For the last time, Lucas, a 9 year old Spock is NOT an option!”

September 11, 2007 7:10 pm

A still to remind us that Hollywood prequel directors are like the Sith. “Always two there are — no more, no less. A master and an apprentice.”

jeff
September 11, 2007 7:12 pm

“Sooo George…..I have this idea. I need your guys to create a young CGI William Shatner. Can you do it?”

September 11, 2007 7:13 pm

Should have added Hollywood SCI-FI prequel directors to #42.

Let’s agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be…

ELITISM:
It’s lonely at the top, but it’s comforting to look down upon everyone at the bottom.

If you want to get to the top, prepare to kiss a lot of the bottom.
