Hi reddit, Jonathan Rinzler (Star Wars scholar and Lucasfilm historian) here. AMA!
Hello, reddit! I'm Jonathan Rinzler, executive editor, author, and the official Star Wars “historian” over at Lucasfilm. With so much going on in the world of Star Wars, past, present, and future, I can't wait to answer your questions about the real-world history of the Star Wars.
I'm doing this AMA on behalf of the Star Wars: Force For Change, a new initiative that's giving one lucky fan and a guest the chance to win a walk-on role in the Star Wars: Episode VII. The best part is that every contribution benefits UNICEF's Innovation Labs and programs: www.omaze.com/starwars
I will be having some help typing today so that I can get to more of them in less time. So get your Star Wars questions ready and ask me anything!
Thank you for joining my reddit AMA. I’m sorry, I didn’t get to all of the questions. I’m going to be in San Diego for Comic-Con with Joe Johnston doing a panel on the original trilogy storyboards. I’ll also be signing the bind up version for the Star Wars comic book. So come say hi, and particularly, come see Joe Johnston, who’s as responsible as anyone for the greatness of the original saga. I’ll also be on a panel about a Ralph Mcquarrie story book with Tony DiTerlizzi.
And if you would like to be in Star Wars: Episode VII, enter Force For Change for your chance to win! www.omaze.com/starwars
