 The Harvard Crimson :: Arts :: Rick McCallum Reveals Next Steps for 'Star Wars'
The 53-year-old McCallum is a relatively new addition to the Star Wars universe, but in his short tenure, he’s raised the hackles of more than a few hardcore devotees.
McCallum thinks it’s the responsibility of relative industry outsiders like Lucasfilm (which operates outside the immediate purview of any major Hollywood studio) to push for a world where “Star Wars” can become that historical blip of which he speaks; where far more films are as technically innovative and entertaining as “Episode III.”
McCallum, hoping to speed that process along, actually speaks very little about the current DVD release of “Episode III.” Instead, he envisions future “Star Wars” DVDs that could literally change the way students learn about film.
