There’s a great interview with Steve Sansweet over at Digital City, focused on fandom and Lucasfilm’s relationship with us. I particularly like this bit about us internet savages:
…It is, and they have a sense of ownership that Lucasfilm is smart enough not to try and disrupt. And fans are critics, and people who post online are the ones who are the most upset about certain things, but we accept it all. Star Wars is what you want Star Wars to be for you. George’s Star Wars is something that he made for him, but if you don’t like a certain thing in his Star Wars, what are you gonna do? Everyone can take their own piece of Star Wars that they enjoy. It’s what fans make of it.
