Then his entire family would've been the cast.

I know he's not in the family, but Al Pacino as Mace would've been hilarious.

"This party's over... hoo-ah!"

Lucas's directing, in terms of pacing and shot composition, is great. I don't know that any director would be able to improve on that with the exception of Spielberg, and even he doesn't really have the epic John Ford/Kurosawa thing down as well as George does. Certainly not Peter Jackson. Would you want to see shaky ZombieCam in Star Wars? What Lucas brings is a traditional, but very effective style of visual storytelling where the blocking of the actors and the compositions combined with the musical score tell you most of what you need to know emotionally, the dialogue really secondary.

The problem lies more with the direction of the actors, and if you notice the veterans tend to fare a lot better than the younger ones. Jake Lloyd, Natalie, and Hayden all had their moments, but they also had more than a handful of poor line readings. Lucas was probably too quick to print a take instead of pushing them to try a little harder. By contrast, Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson and Ian McDiarmid were all about as good as you could ask for in a Star Wars film, because they all have theatre training. Samuel L. Jackson wasn't as reliable, but he's not as good of an actor as the other three.
I agree with this.

Perhaps he should have had a co-director for certain scenes...

The quality of the thing I downloaded was pretty shitty, but it looked quite epic. Don't know if I agree with bringing Jabba the Hutt into the story again, but whatever.

I'm sure this will make more than Final Fantasy, but the question is, how much more? There are going to be a lot of people who draw the line at live action, and won't give a shit about going back and filling in the gaps of the story.

Kids are definitely going to want to see it, though.

Prediction: $150 million U.S.
I'll see it, as I'm that much of a Star Wars junkie.

I wouldn't be surprised if it reached $200 million in the U.S.
