David Lynch’s Return of the Jedi

June 9th, 2014 by Cobwebs

It’s long been known in fannish circles that when George Lucas was looking for a director to helm Return of the Jedi, David Lynch was one of the choices he considered.* There’s been occasional speculation about what a Lynchian take on the movie would have looked like–I’d have watched for the Ewok scenes alone–and finally someone has answered that question with a faux trailer.

*David Cronenberg was another one. George Lucas apparently had a very odd vision of what Jedi should be like.

    haha, I love re-cut trailers. My roommate in college was in film school and they had to cut a trailer for a classic western—it was fun to see what each of them came up with (of course, each of them was trying to create an actual trailer).

    [Okay, but this whole trailer was worth it for the Mulholland Drive song in the Cantina!]

    I was glad for some backwards speech, but I am hugely disappointed at the absence of Log Lady.
