Aluminum Falcon

I wish I could get back the time I wasted on those shitty
prequels and just watch that clip 300 times instead.

Inasmuch as Lucas has often seemed humorless
about "Star Wars'" creative shortcomings under
his stewardship, it's also nice to see the
filmmaker/mogul join in the fun. Yet even in this
lightweight diversion resides a lesson highlighted
by Cartoon Network's animated "Clone Wars"
shorts -- namely, that Lucas' fantasy has
frequently sailed the smoothest when he takes a
back seat and leaves the starship piloting to
someone else.
