STAR WARS THE PHANTOM MENACE 3D Joel Aron interview slice

With the release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D this weekend, Twentieth Century Fox recently hosted a press junket at Skywalker Ranch and Lucasfilm.  In an effort to promote the experience for the next generation, my seven year-old daughter, Cyan, interviewed four people who helped bring George Lucas’ vision to life.  Her final interview was with Joel Aron, CG Supervisor for Star Wars: The Clone Wars the animated series.  They discussed how Darth Maul could come back if he’d been cut in half, the most rewarding part of working on Star Wars, who his favorite character is, his Sith name, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

And if you missed her interview with John Goodson, a digital artist with Lucasfilm who worked as a concept model artist on The Phantom Menace, click here.  Here’s her interview with ObiShawn, a lightsaber stunt coordinater with Lucasfilm.  Finally, here’s supervising sound editor Matthew Wood.
