The Times Online‘s Douglas Rankine has written a fanboy piece about a recent tour of George Lucas‘s ILM facility at San Francisco’s Presidio. The idea of a presumably seasoned journalist in 2008 still being caught up in the lore of Lucasfilm/Star Wars — feeling that tingle of excitement as he stands in front of a Yoda fountain or sips coffee in the Javva Hutt — is close to pathetic. The Lucas brand is totally devalued outside of the under-10 crowd, and this guy is still going “Ooh, wow…pant, pant.”
