It's only a double dip if you've already dipped!
3D release in November has additional goodies.

In 1962, an 18-year-old boy named George Lucas was drag-racing his car. He skidded out of control and wrapped his hotrod around a tree in Modesto. My step-brotherís grandfather pulled George from the wreckage that nearly killed him.

In 1982, a box of super-8 movies Steven made as a kid had long been lost, but were found. I hired two 16-year-old young filmmakers to restore them. One of those boys was J.J. Abrams. We paid him $300.

David Fincher on directing, 2014:
Quote:
"I talked to Kathy about it, but I think that it's a different thing from... I don't know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like. It's tricky. My favourite is The Empire Strikes Back. If I said, 'I want to do something more like that,' then I'm sure the people paying for it would be like, 'No! You can't do that! We want it like the other one with all the creatures!' I always thought of Star Wars as the story of two slaves [ C-3PO and R2-D2 ] who go from owner to owner, witnessing their masters' folly, the ultimate folly of man... I thought it was an interesting idea in the first two, but it's kind of gone by Return Of The Jedi."
2017:
Quote:
"I talked to [producer Kathleen Kennedy] about that and look, itís a plum assignment. I donít know whatís worse: being George Lucas on the set of the first one where everyoneís going, ďAlderaan? What the hell is this?Ē Where everyoneís making fun, but I canít imagine the kind of intestinal fortitude one has to have following up the success of these last two. Thatís a whole other level. One is that you have to endure the withering abuse of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, and the other is you have to live up to a billion or a billion-five, and that becomes its own kind of pressure. I think [The Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner] had the best job. He had a pretty great script and he had the middle story. He didnít have to worry about where it started and he didnít have to worry about where it ended. And he had the great reveal. Youíd have to really clear your head, I think. Youíd have to really be sure this is what you wanted to do because either way itís two years of your life, 14 hours a day, seven days a week."
I had to hear if he was joking about that boldfaced part, he was.
