One of the really great joys of being the biographer of Jim Henson was having the opportunity to know the legion of devoted Jim Henson/Muppet fans. And it’s exactly the same way with George Lucas. Whether it’s discussing the prequels, arguing whether Han shot first, exploring Lucas’s influences, or debating the merits of CGI, George Lucas has one of the most active, vocal — and, frankly, fun — fanbases. It’s been a true pleasure appearing on so many podcasts and having the chance to converse with so many well-informed fans on pretty much everything.

...and on Instagram.Someone is VERY upset about the beeping noise the instapot is making. #dogsofinstagram #dogsNot a fever dream! Not a hoax! These are actual moments from THE 5,000 FINGERS OF DR. T, a 1953 film written and conceived by Dr. Seuss. The filmmaking experience was so awful, he quit the movies altogether. And you should watch it. #drseussI’m volunteering this morning to help get people vaccinated in this amazing building here—one of the great college basketball venues, converted at he moment for a different kind of great shot. #ThePit #GoLobos
