Zuhause auf der Skywalker Ranch

/Film hat einen schönen Artikel zu George Lucas Skywalker Ranch, hier die Highlights des Hauses. Wenn die Filmfreunde Ende des Jahres irgendwann die Weltherrschaft übernommen haben (weil: schön und reich sind wir ja sowieso schon), werde ich George Lucas da rausschmeißen, ihm für Clone Wars auf die Finger hauen und einziehen.

  • Besides all of the work buildings, Lucas also constructed an observatory on-site to house a large telescope sent to him by a Star Wars fan.
  • In additon to the working building, there’s also a motel, four restaurants, a day-care center, and fitness center on the property.
  • In case you were wondering, there’s a free continental breakfast provided daily. Although I imagine if you can afford to book Skywalker Ranch, you’re not worried about the price of a muffin and a glass of juice.
  • The Ranch also has its own fire department, whose trucks are emblazoned with the word “Skywalker” on the sides. They often help with fires in the Marin County area.
  • Lucas went to great length to make sure that it’s difficult to see the buildings from the main road, and has also hidden most of the parking structures underground.
  • As you’d expect, Lucas has an on-site security team with extensive surveillance over the entire property. Supposedly he’s extremely terrified of being kidnapped. Probably more so after the invention of Jar Jar Binks.
  • The Ranch has it’s own screening room, a 300 seat state-of-the-art theater called “The Stag.” It’s one of the most sophisticated theaters in the world.
  • One of the coolest places on the ranch is the Skywalker Library, which is a two-story research center that provides archives and research to filmmakers.
  • Lucas’ inner sanctum at the Ranch, located in the main Victorian-style building, houses artifacts like the original lightsabers from Star Wars, Indy’s battered and dusty fedora from Raiders of the Lost Ark, and… Howard the Duck’s electric guitar.
  • Currently, the Ranch sits on almost 5,000 acres, most of which is undeveloped.

    Niemals, da musst du erst an mir vorbei. Lucas ist toll. Jar Jar Binks auch. So. ;)

    “a large telescope sent to him by a Star Wars fan.”

    Geht das noch als Maxibrief?

    Den Seitenhieb auf Jar Jar Binks finde ich super (und gerechtfertigt)! :)

    Die Filmfreunde werden niemals die Weltherrschaft übernehmen. Patrick B. Rau und seine CAPSLOCK-TASTE haben die Weltherrschaft und sind entschlossen diese zu behalten, wahrzunehmen und NICHT mehr abzugeben.

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.
