In a written interview he mentioned the OBI WAN hut scene as written with them watching Leia’s message first and then just sitting around talking about the FORCE and old times. He said it was stupid and cut it the other way so they see the message and rush off with a sense of urgency.

After watching this video, I decided to make the final scene of episode 4 with music by Antonín Dvořák. ( 25:03 ) This is what the scene with Antonín's New World Symphony would look like. Enjoy...

Dude you’re living the dream of every Star Wars fan! I remember your first video a few years ago. You were just a fan making a Snoke theory but since then, you’ve spoken with Ashley Eckstein, Sam Witwer, Alan Dean Foster, and now Paul Hirsch!! All of this because you were dedicated to doing exactly what you wanted. That’s truly amazing. What’s even better is that despite all of this success, you haven’t changed, become conceited, etc. still the same humble awesome dude as always. Keep it up.

I get the feeling that Theory is keen to rush these guys out of the interviews early, but they wouldn’t mind chatting for an extra 15-20mins. What’s up with that Theory, you got some where else to be after these interviews bro?

Great interview, but I do have one nit pick and it’s just something I notice in a lot of interviews. You guys play up your reactions like he’ll say something interesting and then it’s like “Wow that’s amazing”. I know you want to hype up the guest but idk just comes off weird to me. A lot of people do it in interviews especially Kevin Smith, he always says he’ll blow the guests that come on his show haha so I know it’s just like a thing.

Paul Hirsch along with Marcia Lucas & Richard Chew one of the unsung heroes of star wars. JW Rinzlers book: the making of star wars they're largely credited as saving movie. Academy Award was fully deserved. THANK YOU PAUL HIRSCH. Not only edited my favourite movie TESB but also edited one my favourite comedy's Plains Trains & Automobiles

Very good interview! It would help to remember that just because someone worked on star wars, does not make them fanatical or complete experts on the entire universe, this has been made clear by this and the previous interview. They are editors, writers, etc who work on many things, you all did a good job of pulling specific star wars details but also leaving room to talk about the craft :)

It amazes me when people from his generation remember so much with such details, like in the first 5 minutes he talks about how many movies he went to work with them on before working with anybody else and how old he was... I can't even remember last month.
