By now, you've probably seen Kyle Newman's tribute to Episode VI, The Return of Return of the Jedi: 30 Years and Counting. Today, The Official Star Wars Blog posted an expanded "special edition" of the short film, accompanied by a commentary from Newman. We've embedded the special edition below, along with an excerpt from the blog post. Click here to read the full post with Newman's thoughts.
With a crew of just two (myself and J.C. Reifenberg) we recorded over eight hours of interviews with nearly 20 people in less than a week. Through this process the narrative of the film began to take shape. We interviewed a host of talent: Adrianne Curry, Donald Faison, Dan Fogler, Clare Grant, Topher Grace, Seth Green, Chris Hardwick, Jaime King, Jason Mewes, Isaiah Mustafa, Scott Porter, Eli Roth, Matthew Senreich, Kevin Smith, Patrick Stump, Rileah Vanderbilt, Pete Wentz, and Sam Witwer. I was reaffirmed of Jedi's powerful influence on a generation. It was fascinating to discover so many fellow fans from different backgrounds all sharing similar observations. And watching them poke fun where appropriate in true “roast” fashion!
