Chris Beatty - Disney
It's got to be big. Go big or go home with Star Wars. It's kind of forgotten about. People in the know like Han and Chewie, they knew of this place.feedback

George Lucas

That's where I learned movies. That's where I learned my craft, that's where I basically started my career. That's its job, whether it's to promote the church ... or to promote Napolean on his giant horse.feedback

George Lucas

I realized that the whole concept of narrative art has been forgotten.feedback

George Lucas

I wanted to put it in my hometown. They said no. Mellody wanted to put it in her hometown. They said no. We were both basically heartbroken.feedback

George Lucas

And then we said, All right, let's clear the boards and find a place that really wants it.feedback

Balazs Kerulo

I'm quite positive that within 15 or 20 years, the big dream of mankind will come true. I mean if you've seen Star Wars, if you've seen any other Science Fiction since the 40s it's in the collective vision of mankind.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

Ultimately, the powers that be at Lucasfilm felt strongly enough to take this unprecedented step late in the game to set the Han Solo Project on a new path with the installation of the rock steady Ron Howard as the new director of this incredibly important project.feedback

Erik Davis

Remember, Rogue One' went through a similar directing scuffle and the results produced the most successful film of the year at the global box office. So never bet against Star Wars.feedback

Kathleen Kennedy - Lucasfilm

We're thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step into direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie.feedback

John Oliver

You can roll your eyes all you like, Theresa, but your evening just found a way to get a lot worse. And for the record, Lord Buckethead is an intergalactic space lord who ran on a platform of, among other things, the abolition of the House of Lords (except me)' and 'stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia, start buying lasers from Lord Buckethead. And he did this all while looking like Darth Vader fucked an Amazon Echo.feedback

Kathleen Kennedy - Lucasfilm

We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do Star Wars, they're set up for success. They're gigantic films, and you can't come into them with essentially no experience.feedback

Tiya Sircar

[When] I got this job, she sort of started getting more and more interested in not just our show but 'Clone Wars' and the feature films. Now she's a bonafide 'Star Wars' fanatic. She's like that person that's on all the chat forums. It's just proof that people of all ages and all backgrounds can come to 'Star Wars' at any point in their lives.feedback

Tiya Sircar

I have to say, when I watched Rogue One, I got a little verklempt. I was like, Look at this motley crew of people and the lead is a female and the rest of the dudes are all kinds ethnicities and skin tones. I'm so proud of 'Star Wars' as it is, and the fact that it's making a concerted effort to be more inclusive and be more representative. Because it's 'Star Wars.' It's intergalactic. The more people who look like everyone, the better.feedback

Kristy Glasgow

I have been specifically collecting Star Wars fashion since around 2004, but it has become a bigger focus in recent years, especially when I launched The Kessel Runway.feedback

Kristy Glasgow

The range of women's Star Wars fashion available now is fantastic, with more and more companies producing new collections. Clothing is so much a part of who we are and how we present ourselves to the world, so Star Wars fashion is a big part of my life.feedback

Annie Tseng

I liked Star Wars since I was small. None of my own friends showed up today, but I've made new ones here. I chose Darth Vader because I think he's very handsome.feedback

Makoto Tsai

Taiwan people love movies and they love sci-fi movies, and very early on they were fans of Star Wars.feedback

Manuelito Wheeler

We thought this would be a provocative and effective way to help try to preserve the language and at the same time preserve the culture. What better movie to do this than 'Star Wars?feedback

Joseph Hurtgen

The only archive that anybody bothers to keep in 'Star Wars' is technology. Nobody's writing down memos or news. There's something to a narrative appearing at a moment when higher learning and literacy are more and more required. The great heroes don't have to do that. They're fine all on their own.feedback

Ryan Britt

Fake news in 'Star Wars' is probably their number one problem. There's a lack of deep reading and understanding and comprehension. The transference of cultural memory is really, really short.feedback

Joseph Hurtgen

One thing I would wonder, if we're telling stories in which there's no media culture, there's no written word – what does that mean for us that 'Star Wars' would become one of the most popular tales?feedback

Steve Bannon

Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power.feedback

Ashley Eckstein

I wanted Star Wars clothes made for me and I honestly thought they existed. So, I went shopping one day and I came up empty handed. I scoured the internet and, once again, came up empty handed. So then I started doing my research because I know I'm not alone, and found out that half of all sci-fi and fantasy fans are women and girls and so I thought somebody has to do something about this.feedback

Hirotsugu Tsuchiya

The most difficult aspect was that each section of the mask was created by a different gold craftsman and then assembled to make one Darth Vader mask.feedback

Rob Lowe

Listen, who does Luke Skywalker go to for the answers to the universe? You go to Yoda, he is the keeper of the secrets, he is the expert in stories. More than anything, what my character Rick is that really made me laugh, is he takes what he does so seriously, it is legitimately life and death for him.feedback

Jim Cramer

You buy Kimberly-Clark when it gets hit. Hasbro's developed a very different model from Mattel's. It's more experiential, and it does a huge amount of business selling Disney toys, and given that we've got a new 'Star Wars' movie later this year [and] maybe a couple of 'Star Wars' movies down the line, I bet it's a winner, not a loser like Mattel. Memo to the companies that report in the following three days: will you stop it, please? Move your quarters. We can't focus on all of you. There's always someone itching to sell this thing. Maybe then we wait to see, and buy.feedback

J. Michael Roddy - Walt Disney World Resort

Disney's Hollywood Studios is the home of Star Wars. If you want to play in the Star Wars world, this is where you need to come.feedback

Kathleen Kennedy - Lucasfilm

We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do Star Wars they're set up for success. They're gigantic films, and you can't come into them with essentially no experience.feedback

Luke Skywalker

Breathe, just breathe. Now reach out. What do you see? I only know one truth - it's time for the Jedi to end.feedback

Jim Cramer

The fact is that if you buy Disney's stock on this, I'd tell you that you might as well believe in Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and Han Solo and Captain Marvel and anybody else in the stable. The only thing that's really accomplished by this kind of speculation? The short-sellers will be afraid to bet against Disney's stock because of newfound fears of a takeover lurking. It really does put a bid underneath, simply because it was just too juicy to ignore.feedback

George Lucas

She played a part that was very smart, and she was having to hold her own against two big lugs, goofballs that were screwing everything up. She was the boss. It was her war, and when I cast it, I said I want somebody young to play the part. I want somebody very young. When Carrie came in, she was that character. She was very strong, very smart, very funny, very bold, very tough, and there really wasn't much of a question. There are not very many people like her. They are one in a billion.feedback

George Lucas

There are not very many people like her. They are one in a billion. For this particular part, it was absolutely perfect…She wore a dress through the whole thing, but she was the toughest in the group. She was very challenging in terms of pointing out that certain pieces of dialogue were a little hard to say. She was brilliant, and obviously we will all miss her, but she will always be the princess who took command and never backed down, never was in jeopardy. She was always helping the other guys get out of the messes she created. We'll all love her forever and ever.feedback

Carrie Fisher

I saw them in the fitting and was immediately gravitated towards them because I had to be. I just went into the fitting, saw them, [and] recognized my family heritage – which is to have weird things over your ears and cover them all the time.feedback

Kathleen Kennedy - Lucasfilm

I think that there was no greater honor than working with the late and truly great Carrie Fisher. She was unlike anyone you've known, unlike anyone in this room. Her humor, her insight, her brilliance. When you associate Princess Leia, you realize that was Carrie.feedback

George Lucas

He was right, it was a bit much. Although, it stuck in your brain.feedback

Kathleen Kennedy - Lucasfilm

Star Wars Forces of Destiny' is for anyone who has been inspired by Leia's heroism, Rey's courage, or Ahsoka's tenacity. We're thrilled that so many of the original actors are reprising their roles in these shorts which capture the small moments and everyday decisions that shape who these characters are. It is a fun new way for people to experience 'Star Wars.feedback

Alex Baillie

What we knew about working with Singapore previously was that the infrastructure here is world-class, all the facilities are exactly what we needed to deliver events of a certain quality. The fandom has been growing quite organically for a long time…and the themes of Star Wars are as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.feedback

Azmi Danuri

There's something in Star Wars for all of us, whether it be about good versus evil, space battles, feisty princesses or interstellar politics…the appeal transcends borders, age and gender.feedback

Azmi Danuri

We haven't had a Star Wars event of this scale in Singapore since 2005.feedback

Billie Lourd

My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began. She went from being an unknown actress, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, to Princess Leia…. She was imperfect in many ways, but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect. My mom, like Leia, wasn't ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable, but not me and not you. That was why she loved you, because you accepted and embraced all of her.feedback

Todd Fisher

Both of us were like, Yes, how do you take her out of it?' And the answer is you don't. She's as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan – when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that's what's happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue. You don't mess with this legacy. It would be like rewriting the Bible. To me, Star Wars is the holy grail of storytelling and lore and you can't mess with it.feedback

Todd Fisher

Both of us were like, Yes, how do you take her out of it?' And the answer is you don't. She's as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan - when the (light) saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that's what's happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue. She's owned by them. You don't mess with this legacy. It would be like rewriting the Bible. To me, Star Wars' is the holy grail of storytelling and lore and you can't mess with it.feedback

Alex Mallin - ABC

Reporters forgot to turn off Star Wars: Rogue One before @POTUS came back to visit the press cabin.feedback

Gary Barlow

I'd like to renew my wedding vows with my amazing wife. That's definitely on the agenda. Now that I've said that, I'll probably be out. The Star Wars people are so strict about information. So me saying that, I've probably done myself out of a role.feedback

Liza Rios-Proprofsky

Star Wars has been a part of our child narrative. When Carrie Fisher passed, it was actually like a member of the family had left us. When I was a little girl, here was this strong woman who was a princess who could take charge. We knew that if we came here we would be with people who are like-minded, that would understand how we felt.feedback

Dan Aykroyd

Although Carrie and I did not get married, we had taken blood test in anticipation of maybe having a child. So what would the offspring of Princess Leia and Elwood Blues turn out like? Funny? Quick? Spiritual, haunted, pursued, talented, acerbic...deviant, manic, genius...in other words, we would've had Todd Fisher.feedback

Bob Iger

There were a few things that happened [that were] significant in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee, that will happen in this film. But you'll also discover how he got his name. In Rogue One we created digitally a few characters. One had been an actor who actually passed away and was in an earlier Star Wars film. We're not doing that with Carrie.feedback

Todd Fisher

She no longer wanted to be cremated, she wanted to be buried with Carrie. Now she wanted the tomb idea that I had brought up long ago and got sunk. No, I don't want a big tomb, I don't want to draw any attention to myself,' [she said], but now with Carrie gone she said, Okay.' So we bought this great tomb over at Forest Lawn [cemetery]. She changed her mind that night. Carrie was in the middle of what was, I thought, her finest hours. Her creativity was peaking, the Star Wars thing was obviously back in spades. Everything that she was doing was turning to gold.feedback

Bob Iger

There are a few significant things that happen in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee [editor's note: CHEWBACCAAAAA!] that will happen in this film. But you will also discover how he got his name. We're starting talk about what could happen after Episode IX. About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories.feedback

Bob Iger

We make a point of revealing very little from our upcoming Star Wars films. We want to keep them secret. But we're making an exception today. We're going to show you an exclusive first look at what happens right after that scene, and that lightsaber being handed to its rightful owner.feedback

Samantha Lomow - Hasbro

Consumer and retailer research shows more and more children – and their parents – are interested in the Star Wars and Marvel franchises as well as the female characters represented within entertainment. In 2015, for the first time, the National Retail Federation reported that Star Wars was on the top 10 toy lists for both boys and girls. Fans and families are at the center of this conversation, for example, voting for strong female characters in both the Transformers and Marvel franchises to become future figures.feedback

Michael Ng

Hasbro is a best-in-class toy company with a strong portfolio of entertainment-driven products including Marvel, Star Wars, Disney Princess, and Transformers.feedback

Brian Goldner - Hasbro

We also felt like it really wasn't contemporary. It's not the way we look at our business to look at boys and girls anymore. So many of our brands are gender inclusive. If you play Nerf, you could be a boy or a girl. If you love 'Star Wars', you are a boy or a girl. You could be anybody.feedback

Brian Goldner - Hasbro

I know our fans and collectors are very excited from all of our social scraping and listening. We really see their excitement around the 40th anniversary and then we'll segue again into a fall event, and head into 'The Last Jedi,' and so again, I think we're set up well for 'Star Wars' this year.feedback

Brian Goldner - Hasbro

Despite some shifts to later consumer purchases, we do not view and did not experience the season as different from other years. While Hasbro's global 'Star Wars' revenues declined slightly, we capitalized on the growing franchise driving by both 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and the December release of 'Rogue One: a Star Wars Story,'.feedback

Steve Bannon

The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while. Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power. Questioning his integrity' - are you kidding me? The media has zero integrity, zero intelligence, and no hard work.feedback

Nikolas Oliverio - Twitter

If it's called #TheLastJedi, my honest and bold prediction is that Luke Skywalker has to die.feedback

Drew Borst - Goldman Sachs Group

Studio entertainment should benefit from what may [be] Disney's strongest ever film slate with 4 Marvel films, 2 'Star Wars' films and 3 animated family films. Notably, this will be the first time that Disney has ever had 2 'Star Wars' films in a single [fiscal] year with 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' (Dec. 15, 2017) and Han Solo 'Star Wars' Anthology (May 25, 2018).feedback

Eric Garcetti

Art exists to inspire, to move, to educate, and to excite. Thanks to George Lucas and (his wife) Mellody Hobson, millions of Angelenos and visitors will enjoy an extraordinary collection anchored in storytelling -- an art that carries so much meaning in the history and legacy of Los Angeles.feedback

Meryl Streep

We should all be very proud of the work Hollywood honors here tonight. As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once, Take your broken heart and make it into art.' Thank you, friend.feedback

Richard L. Gelfond

You can't walk into a mall in China I'm told without seeing Star Wars everywhere. We did a lot of viral marketing, a lot of online things that appeal to consumers.feedback

Dale Hrebrik

I didn't know her. But as an iconic character and as a person, a writer and a smart, funny, fantastic woman and role model, I was heartbroken and devastated.feedback

Brooke Ethridge

This is a public demonstration of our love for Princess Leia. Our first instinct was to hit the streets and parade and celebrate Princess Leia and Carrie Fisher.feedback

Jacquelyn Ryan

Probably my first introduction to her was 'Star Wars,' but she as a person was really important. Her activism, her mental health awareness, her activism for women, her unapologetic attitude about youth and beauty in Hollywood really spoke to me.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

The fact that we are talking about this shows how woven into the DNA of 'Star Wars' Carrie Fisher is. This is no small thing.feedback

Erik Davis

Based on the divisive way that fans have reacted to the effects in 'Rogue One' and considering that her death will still be pretty fresh, I think they won't go the CGI route. Unless, it's to touch up a tiny bit, a fraction of a scene. Sort of the way 'Fast and Furious' did it with Paul Walker. I think that that would be the only case that they would use effects.feedback

Paul Dergarabedian - comScore

You have the creative talent behind the 'Star Wars' movies that will deal with this in a very respectful and appropriate way. Somehow you will have to address it and be respectful to Carrie Fisher's family, the fans and 'Star Wars,' in that order.feedback

Daniel Barassi

The way she acted, the way she projected herself, there was just the strength within her and being a role model for every other girl. I mean, come on, girls had somebody to look up to. I didn't just have Han Solo.feedback

George Lucas

No words #Devasted. When she walked the red carpet she was just the everyman, she was just… she didn't let it go to her head.feedback

Steven Narvaez

Princess Leia was one of my first childhood crushes, as I'm sure with many of us. It was so great seeing 'The Force Awakens'. You know I just feel really sad.feedback

Carrie Fisher Dies

I was surprised. As surprised as you can be and still be so far over forty. I mean, I thought they might make more Star Wars movies – not that I thought it all that much – but I doubted that I would find myself in them. And now it looked like I would! Hallelujah!feedback

Alexa Mullally

She's a warrior and will pull through. I grew up watching Star Wars and adored Princess Leia.feedback

Matthew Hudak

New games are being introduced every year that are largely aimed at millennial consumers, such as 'Codename', Star Wars: Armada', and 'Pandemic: Legacy' in 2015. These games can be either competitive or cooperative and are typically aimed at adults looking for an activity to do while drinking and socialising with friends.feedback

Bill Gates - Microsoft

Nate is a great example of what it takes to be an effective teacher. He works hard at his craft, always searching for ways to make a subject relevant for his students. For example, he uses 'Star Wars' to help explain Civil Rights. It's pretty amazing.feedback

Erik Davis

It goes to show you that 'Star Wars' as a brand is probably the strongest brand next to Marvel Studios.feedback

Barton Crockett - FBR Capital Markets

For Disney, Rogue One' will test whether Star Wars was a flash in the pan reboot success or a franchise that will have lasting appeal. Lasting appeal is crucial, because the argument for Star Wars upside is that this is a high-margin annuity in perpetuity, not just a lumpy hit-and-miss series.feedback

Donnie Yen

All my friends ... said 'We're so excited for you. You're the first Chinese actor that's going to be in the 'Star Wars' universe,' and everything just dawned on me. This is history making here, so I'm so glad that I'm standing here in front of the camera.feedback

Gareth Edwards

You don't have to have seen 'Star Wars' to come and see this film. You could never have seen it in your life and everything you needed to know, you learn during this movie. My goal would be, if we do our jobs properly, that by the time the film ends, the first thing you want to do is watch 'A New Hope' and see the rest if you haven't seen it before.feedback

Gareth Edwards

Making something like 'Star Wars' is very intimidating, there's a lot of pressure and so we would always joke with each other and mock each other and had a very good, dry, sarcastic sense of humour, and so we were sort of in a battle together, it felt like the characters in the film, we had a camera and we had the actors and we were fighting this war trying to achieve this impossible task of making a good Star Wars movie.feedback

Carrie Fisher

Harrison's very private, but I think I waited an appropriate amount of time. How much longer could I wait?feedback

Tom Enders - Airbus Group

I'm no big fan of Star Wars, but it's not crazy to imagine that one day our big cities will have flying cars making their way along roads in the sky. In a not too distant future, we'll use our smartphones to book a fully automated flying taxi that will land outside our front door – without any pilot.feedback

Nathan Copeland

Luke Skywalker got his hand chopped off, and the next day he has a robot one. That could be someone else, not even that far in the future.feedback

Jim Ryan

We think there's a really great range of value propositions…there are full game experiences, Final Fantasy,' there's 'Batman,' there's 'Star Wars,' but at the other end, there are smaller, lighter gaming experiences priced accordingly, very affordable. For us, it's really important to have that great range of gaming propositions on PlayStation VR.feedback

Nathan Copeland

Technically when it's over, I will have netted nothing except having done some cool stuff with some cool people. It's cheesy, but Luke Skywalker loses his hand and then basically the next day he's got a robot one and it's working fine. We have to get to that point, and to do that, someone has to start it.feedback

Alexander Milas

It's one of these sagas that's inextricably linked to the material items around them. The toys, the memorabilia and I think this resonates so deeply with 'Star Wars' fans because it not only has the holograms that people know from the films, it's actually just one of these incredibly collectible things that can resonate with people who might have grown up collecting the toys themselves.feedback

Blake Jorgensen

Our digital business drove this quarter, particularly outperformance from FIFA Ultimate Team on console and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes on mobile. This success along with the launch of NBA LIVE Mobile gives us great confidence in our ability to operate and add new live services through the year.feedback

Jade Raymond

They're channeling their talent and passion to bring you all-new experiences that will span many corners of the 'Star Wars' universe.feedback

Henri Mazza

It's always been a dream to show the original Star Wars trilogy again – somehow, someway. Seeing the original trilogy on the big screen for the first time is a real life-altering event and just a supreme amount of fun. When the films became available to book for screenings like these, we jumped at the chance to do something big.feedback

Tony Dyson

I can honestly say it was one of the most exciting periods of my life. The love for R2 is universal; no other Star Wars character has been loved over the years the way R2-D2 has. His merchandising has rocketed over the years and his influence in the world of robotics is truly remarkable.feedback

Bob Iger

Well, we had great performance across the board, really. Clearly, Star Wars' drove the studio performance.feedback

Simon Pegg

It was literally a dream come true, I mean I can't say any fairer than that. To be part of something that meant so much to me as a youngster, to find myself become part of the story in a Star Wars figure and all that, it's bananas.feedback

Gwendoline Christie

I'm so privileged of both projects, Game of Thrones and Star Wars, to be part of such great writing and great filmmaking; and as an actor, it's unusual to be in something that people watch yet alone love.feedback

George Lucas

I wanted to make a film that was even more realistic than what people had done. So we started doing a lot of research, development and, for a lot of the early years, that's basically what we were doing. We were trying to up the game because it is technology related, so we have to spend a lot of time making things look more realistic. So that was part of the whole idea to take animation to a whole new level.feedback
