To top off my high I got from Boxee’s success at CES, I hopped on over to San Francisco to meet with Lucasfilm. Lucasfilm and Star Wars Uncut are exploring the possibilities of collaboration. We had a fantastic brainstorm session.

I got a full tour of the Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic offices. Inside is incredible. Filled with tons of toys, movie posters and nostalgia in every single office. Unfortunately, you’re not allowed to take photos once you’re inside except for one exception; You have to be in the photo yourself. I took the time to sit in Mr. Lucas’ spot at the conference table and snap a photo.

They have their own coffee shop called, “Java the Hutt”.

Can't believe SWU is at 97% complete.. so stoked to watch the film in its entirety once it is done.

And congrats on the tour. We did a few sites for LucasArts and I attended a meeting on the campus but never got the full tour. The parts I did see were totally nerd-tastic so I imagine seeing the good parts was overwhelming.

The question is.. how in the world are you going to top this?!
