It’s a reasonably well-known fact among Star Wars nerds that George Lucas offered Return of the Jedi to renown director/crazy person David Lynch, who turned it down. Lynch, speaking recently with something called Fora TV, finally explained what happened, and it involves Lucas taking him to a shitty restaurant that only served salads. Also, Lynch wasn’t the biggest fan of Wookiees (although I wonder if he means Ewoks… or if George was talking to him when the ending still involved Wookiees instead of teddy bears). Anyways, it’s fascinating. Thanks to my buddy Alex for the tip.
