Hahahaaahahaa, so George finally concedes that he needs someone around who can
actually write. My friends at ILM tell me that most of the geek artists there
are in a tizzy because "The Lord of the Rings" has gotten more web hits than
"Episode I" did, like 1.6 million vs. 1 million or something. If they end up
with Jar-Jar still in "Episode II" and Lucas manages to animate another piece of
wood to play teen-age Anakin they'll be lucky if they get 5 hits when the second
movie comes out.
