He showed me these things called “Wookies”
A short, amusing video of David Lynch discussing his near brush with directing Revenge of the Jedi.
Interesting to note: he went on to direct Dune instead, taking the reigns over from the failed production that was to be directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky in collaboration with Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, Gloria Swanson, David Carradine and Mick Jagger, with art direction by Moebius and H.R. Giger and music by Pink Floyd. Can you imagine the amazing alternate reality out there where David Lynch directed Return of the Jedi and Jodorowsky, Dali, Giger and Pink Floyd made Dune? I think it would be slightly better than this reality . . .
