  • A movie is never finished, only abandoned.
  • Dreams are extremely important. You can't do it unless you imagine it.
  • Good luck has its storms.
  • I regret not the things I have done, only those I have yet to do.
  • It's not like the old 'Star Wars'. This one's a little bit more emotional. We like to describe Episode III as Titanic in space. It's a tearjerker.
  • Sound is 50 percent of the moviegoing experience.
  • The secret to film is that it's an illusion.
  • A talent is a combination of something you love a great deal, something you can lose yourself in - something that you can start at 9 in the morning, look up from your work and it's 10 o'clock at night - and something that you have a natural ability to do very well.
  • Special effects are just a tool: a means of telling a story. People have a tendency to confuse them as an ends unto themselves. A special effect without a story is a pretty boring thing. ([1] @9:39)
  • Remember in the end, John, you're not looking at the background, you're not watching the Pods, you're listening to the music.
    • George Lucas to John Knoll
  • If I had time and a hammer, I'd track down every bootleg copy and smash it.


I've restored the quote about special effects because a better source has come to light. -- Kendrick7 (talk) 15:35, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
