    On The Living Daylights commentary director John Glen says that DP Alan Hume (Return of the Jedi, various 007 films) wasn't available because of his committment to a George Lucas Star Wars film. Thus, Alec Mills (cameraman ROTJ and other 007 films) took over as DP.

    I found it curious since filming for Daylights was in 1986 and there was no Star Wars filming around that time. Also, Hume did work on other projects in 86/87 (but nothing for Lucasfilm). Is it possible that Lucas was considering another Star Wars film that year? Or maybe Glen was mistaken. Hume did DP duties for both ROTJ and Octopussy - both of which were released in 1983.

    Ummm .... I think the two Ewok TV movies were made in about that time frame.

    Those movies are considered to be part of the official Star Wars universe.

    Hey, why aren't those Ewok movies on DVD? I'm sure they aren't that good, but I've never seen them. [​IMG]

    Q:Any chance the two Ewok movies or the Ewoks and Droids cartoon series will be released on DVD?

    A:I hope so. Definitely.

    At some point after we're finished with Episode III, we'd really like to make all of that material available to our fans on DVD.

    I wonder if they even acknowledge the existence of the Holiday Special [​IMG]

    Alan Hume didn't work on either of those films, but perhaps he had agreed before the filming of Bond than changed his mind and went somewhere else. Thanks for reminding me though about the Ewok movies.
