- Only directed a handful of movies (22-year hiatus between Star Wars and The Phantom Menace).
- Instead of asking for more money for directing Star Wars, he got a cut of the merchandise sales.
- What else you could get $4.05 billion (the purchase price of Lucasfilm).
- Thank you to George Lucas for making all of this possible. Referenced: "Welcome Back" (song by John Sebastian).
Thank you one and all
