Could George Lucas Ever Return to STAR WARS?

George Lucas helped out with a scene when he visited the set of Solo. Is it possible the creator of Star Wars would ever like to return to the galaxy far, far away? We discussed the possibility on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, along with whether or not the latest Infinity War teasers are doing anything to get us more hyped for the movie, and if the Peter Rabbit controversy has merit.

Host Jessica Chobot was joined today by producer Jesse Gill, Mothership writer Amy Vorpahl, and Nerdist News writer Joey Clift, and they assembled to first look at the latest TV spot for Infinity War. There was almost nothing new in it, so they kicked off the discussion by questioning the point of releasing a short spot like this.

We also found out last week George Lucas helped direct a scene when he visited the Solo set. Does this mean he hasn’t truly let go of his Star Wars baby? It’s hard to imagine, but maybe there’s a possibility of him returning to Star Wars in a more official capacity.

Finally, like everyone predicted, the Peter Rabbit movie has led to controversy, with Sony apologizing for how it depicted a food allergy. Is this too much sensitivity, or are parents right to be upset?

Remember Nerdist News Talks Back airs live on our YouTube and Alpha channels at 1 p.m. PT Monday through Thursday. Starting this Friday, Nerdist News What the Fridays will kick off; it’s our brand new hour long show recapping the week in pop culture, and it will air at 1 p.m. PT exclusively on Alpha.

No, George Lucas will not be involved with the show. Unless he wants to be, then he’s definitely welcomed to help out. The guy did create Star Wars after all.

We still want to hear from you about today’s show, so talk back to us in the comments below.
