Morning Watch: 40-Minute George Lucas Interview, Optimus Prime in Real Life, Funny Val Kilmer Mashup and More

May 02, 2012

Here's a great 40-minute interview with George Lucas that was part of this week's Milken Institute Global Conference at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. Among the topics: Han and Greedo, film school, his favorite films and more. You can watch the entire interview below. [via THR]

Optimus Prime desperately needs another big-screen adventure because the gigs he takes on in between films aren't nearly as interesting. To promote their new Transformers ride, Universal Studios Hollywood has brought in a real-life walking and talking version of Optimus Prime to awkwardly stroll around and chat up fans. Check it.
