(McCallum chats with fans at Celebration Europe)
In the last of a three-part interview, Star Wars fan site Lightsabre chats with Star Wars prequels producer Rick McCallum about what it would have been like to film A New Hope today as opposed to 1977.
It was such a hard movie to make, hard in terms of you couldn’t have had a more unsympathetic crew, you couldn’t have had a story that was more bizarre. It’s easy too look back and be a back seat driver when you’re not even in the same car and you look back, and you kind of rewrite history but at that time to have to walk on the set at Elstree, especially within the context of how the film business was run, and have a character like Chewbacca come walking on the set a talking lines with a guy in a black helmet who was a Cockney guy who couldn’t…well, I won’t go into it. It must have been so bizarre.
