DVD Talk reviews Joseph Campbell – The Hero’s Journey, a documentary on the man known for his work in comparative mythology and (in fandom) his influence on George Lucas and Star Wars. The documentary dates from 1997 but will be out on DVD in February. Poking around amazon.com also reveals Bill Moyer’s Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth, which I thought was out of print, but apparently not… In any case, it includes an interview with Lucas. (Who, in the Amazon listing, gets listed above Moyers – for a 14 minute interview!)
James Michael Tyler talks to Jonathan Rinzler about The Art of Revenge of the Sith and The Making of, as well as Matthew Stover about the ROTS novelization and James Luceno about Dark Lord.
Screw that, have more funny
- Matthew ‘General Grievous’ Wood and Warwick Davis sing a classic Disney song.
- Hayden Christensen on MTV’s TRL.
- Budweiser Star Wars. I’m sorry.
- To continue tonight’s slide into cheesiness, a Jeff Foxworthy/Star Wars mashup. Really, very, very sorry.
- Okay, okay, here’s something that will only make you cringe a little: 1977 cast interview on The Today Show.
