MST3K And Lucasfilm

Posted By Mike on December 8, 2007

Aintitcool.com has a post with information about a project bringing the original Mystery Science Theater group back together called Cinematic Titanic. There looks ot be a Lucasfilm tie-in according to Joel "Agent J" Hodgson:

"Also, in the news: Iíve just been interviewed by Lucasfilm online, in anticipation of Cinematic Titanicís first live show and world premiere in San Francisco in December. We will link to that story as soon as it is released. Sorry, but this special live show is a closed event for I.L.M/Lucasfilm employees and guests only. As of this writing we are still negotiating some of the fine points, however I am pleased to mention that theyíve granted us the rights to offer this event to you, the friends of Cinematic Titanic, remotely and slightly after the fact - stay tuned."

Thanks to Ryan P. for the heads up.


UPDATE:
From Starwars.com:

"About 20 years ago, the Satellite of Love began circling high overhead. Within the confines of this orbital station, everyman Joel Robinson was subjected to watching terrible movies, with only his wisecracking robot sidekicks -- Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot -- to help him by delivering well-timed hilarious commentary. Quickly following its 1988 debut on a local Twin Cities television station KTMA, Mystery Science Theater 3000 became a cult hit, moving to the Comedy Channel, then Comedy Central, and then eventually the Sci-Fi Network.

From 1988 to 1993, comedian and series creator Joel Hodgson played the main role of Joel, before handing over the reigns to Mike Nelson, who hosted through to the show's end in 1999. "End," though, is really used figuratively here, because even though the show is off the air, an active fan-base continues to celebrate all things MST3K, by buying the latest DVD releases or circulating videotapes of hard-to-find episodes. Riffing on bad movies has become a pastime for many MST3K fans who keep the spirit alive. At Industrial Light & Magic, there's a monthly tradition of bad movie screenings called "Flecks" that has been going on for years, and has since spread to other effects and animation studios.

Hodgson has spent the past decade behind-the-scenes developing a variety of entertainment projects, but he will soon be returning to the silhouetted spotlight when he and the original cast of MST3K debut an all-new video project, Cinematic Titanic (visit the website here). In preparation for this new venture, Hodgson visited the offices of Lucasfilm, and StarWars.com was granted an exclusive interview."
