Why Christopher Nolan Loves Star Wars | Movie Blog

Christopher Nolan is by far my favorite director and recently, this little video was released revealing his thoughts on Star Wars.

After I found that video, I decided to look into some more of my favorite directors.

Did you know R2D2 is in J.J Abrams’ Star Trek?

Just because, here is an in depth interview with J.J included some thoughts on the similarities between Star Trek and Star Wars.  (Courtesy of Hero Complex)

Before Christopher Nolan took over, M. Night Shyamalan was my favorite director.  He may not be the champ anymore but I still adore Signs.  However, there are some comparisons between Shyamalan and George Lucas.

In my travels I also came across From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga.

Then I got distracted even further when I stumbled across The 10 Most Badass Fan-Made Lightsabre duels over at Unreality.

Back on track, Zak Snyder enjoys Unicorn Yoda cake?

David Fincher was an assistant cameraman on Return of the Jedi!?

Of course I’m missing a ton of directors like Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, Peter Jackson, Francis Ford Coppola and more that I adore but how could I leave out Lucas’ pal Steven Spielberg?  Did you know he wept at a screening of Episode 3?

I could probably spend days looking up interesting references to Star Wars.  Have any hidden gems?
