George Lucas reveals his 3 a.m. ritual: ‘I put on my rubber Jar Jar Binks hat’

Jan. 07, 2010 | 7:20 p.m.

The wizard of Skywalker Ranch dropped by “The Daily Show” and made short jokes about the host, explained the appeal of “The Clone Wars,” and said in his early days he assumed that “Star Wars” would be a single film that would be just a passing chapter in his career. “It’s not at all what I expected my life to be…I expected to turn into something great. But, you know, you take what you can get.” He also said that when he’s alone he, uh, likes to dress up like Jar Jar Binks.

    This story is why I think reporting should be left to real journalists. Anybody that saw the show knows Lucas was joking when he made that comment, in response to Stewart's comment that he likes to dress up as R2D2.

    Great stuff!! :)

    And JLee you are the ONLY person who didnt realize it was a joke here as well. As for being a "real journalist," I've been writing for the Los Angeles Times since 1992 so you're two for two

    Geoff Boucher, you shoud get fired from LA Times after writing this blog… it is pointless and brainless.

  5. Geoff Boucher says:

    Leo, I love you too
