    J. W. Rinzler passed away earlier this year after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer, but his work will live on forever. Rinzler, a film historian who published several books on the making of Star Wars, had one last gift to offer. His final book, titled Howard Kazanjian: A Producer’s Life, was released earlier this month, and contains a wonderful quote from Luke Skywalker himself about the Star Wars prequels.



    Mark Hamill, who is considered an ambassador of the franchise and a living representation of the positivity and joy it brings to audiences around the world, declared himself a fan of the prequels in the book. He said (via IndieWire):



    If nothing else, we know Mark Hamill is someone who tells the truth, given his comments on the path Lucasfilm took with the sequel trilogy, and his character in particular. It is always nice to hear one of the stars of the franchise be a fan and enjoy what they see. Rinzler's book is a biography of producer Howard Kazanjian, who worked on Lucasfilm classics The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Return of the Jedi, and whose career in film spans over 50 years.

    Man, I love ‘spin’. It’s endlessly entertaining. “I’m impressed they had their own identity” = MARK HAMILL PRAISES PREQUELS!!

    Ah, good stuff. I needed a giggle.

    I'm a little confused by what he means when he says they weren't "as commercial".

    Like, I lived through the '90s, y;all. Can't fool me.

    I remember that scene something like this:

    "Now this..."

    *takes big swig from 2 liter of Pepsi cola*

    "... is podracing!"

    *satisfied "ahhhhhh"* after thirst is sufficiently quenched*

    What did the gummy battle droid say when he felt jolly?
    “Rancher Rancher!”

    (but then he was eaten).
