Blank Check with Griffin and David Wiki

A Conversation with George Lucas is episode 32 and the ninth and final part of the Revenge of The Podcast miniseries, about Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Posted 23 Nov 2015.


With Griffin and David nearing the end of their investigation into the Phantom Menace trilogy there were still a lot of unanswered questions. So they decided to invite a very special guest who played a central part in creating these three indie films to help them better understand: director George Lucas[1]. Yes, that's right - Georgie Porgie himself in the flesh!

Listen in as the hosts attempt to make sense of Jar Jar Binks, Jake Lloyd’s performance, Coruscant the city planet, and more with the architect behind it all. Lucas is a slippery one - can Griffin nail him down or will he play the role of Professor Frustrated in this episode for a change? What box office records have George Lucas projects set? (Records count in both directions!) Can Lucas provide guidance on the central questions about these movies that Griffin and David have so desperately sought, before his 'hard out' on the recording session?

Also, a GIANT revelation is brought to light that completely changes everything Griffin and David thought they knew about the Star Wars universe!
