7-Year Old Writes George Lucas To Change The Rules So Jedis Can Get Married, So He Can Get Married

7-year old Colin Gilpatric recently wrote George Lucas asking him to change the rules so Jedis can get married, so that he can get married in the future without having to become a Sith. Obviously, because George Lucas has absolutely no problem throwing traditional Star Wars canon into a CG Sarlaac pit where Greedo shot first, LucasFilm agreed to the changes. Admittedly, I doubt George was even aware of the request and the response was created by LucasFilm PR, who did a wonderful job fulfilling a young boy's dreams. I dunno, maybe I'm just still a little bitter George Lucas never responded to my request to CG my face onto each side of Princess Leia's golden bikini top during the sail barge scene in the Blu-Ray re-release of Return of the Jedi. I COULD HAVE BEEN A STAR.

Keep going for a picture of the bonus swag LucasFilm sent, as well as a video of Colin opening the package and another of him battling Darth Vader during Disney Star Wars Weekends.

  • Dear George, i would like to see a Jedi having Sex with a huge boobed Twilek. Please change the Rule!

  • Somewhere on the internet that exists.
    I am so going to look for it now.

  • Jan Bergström

    Arrrrggg, feel my spur of force!

  • Mr. Ordinary

    If you're a good SW fan who does not consider the prequels canon, then there's nothing that says a jedi can't be married.

  • Codster9

    Is that supposed to be a joke?

    "Dear George Lucas, here's a letter my parents coached me to write so you would send some free shit. Sincerely, some kid."

  • Halfaxia

    Fuck off, you cynical shit. It's also "coaxed" not "coached".

  • Superior_Joe

    Wrong. "Coached" is precisely the verb I intended, because that's exactly what these greedy, classless dicks did.

  • Halfaxia

    I bet they're so proud of the DK character encyclopaedia, scholastics book and sticker sheet they swindled out of that poor independent company Lucasfilm and their small IP "Star Wars".

    You're still a cynical shit.

  • Superior_Joe

    I never expressed sympathy for lf, just pointing out that this is a scam, no matter how small - time. And you're gullible and hostile.

  • Halfaxia

    Bring me proof it's a scam.

  • Superior_Joe

    Bring me proof it's not.

    *mic drop*

    *walls away slowly, never to return to thread*

    Hi, I am the father of "some kid". I know him as Colin. I can assure you he was not coached or coaxed. His mom and I were going crazy because he was obsessing for weeks asking us why Jedi are not allowed to marry. He was not satisfied with our answers and kept asking over and over. At our wits end, his mom handed him a piece of paper and told him to ask George Lucas. What he ended up writing is what you see. We did not coach him to ask that the rule be changed. That was all Colin. We did not really expect more than a form letter response, if that. We were totally surprised by the response. We have since been contacted by LucasFilm Public Relations department and have learned that they do not usually respond to direct questions, but they enjoyed Colin's and thought that it warranted a response. To this day, it is hanging on the wall in the PR department.

    Mike,
    Don't give these bottom dwellers the time of day. They are obviously trolls. Star Wars is a tradition in the family (at least on Peggy's side) that runs deep. I learned a lot of great things about Star Wars from Colin's uncle Tobin and I am sure the force is strong with him as well.

  • Halfaxia

    SHIIIT DIS NIGGA BE ALL COOL DAHMN! NIGGA SURE SHOWED ME BOY HOWDY!

  • Mr. Shoe

    Who let Jar Jar Binks out into the forums?

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    I wonder if I write with my other hand I can pretend to be a kid so I can get free stuff.

  • Leland_Gaunt

    Tell that to my wife, little dude. She expects no less that a Sith MASTER in the bedroom, and I'm happy to oblige her. Embrace the Dark Side, she'll love you for it. Trust me. ;)

  • Kevin

    Did you let her hold your light saber?

  • Leland_Gaunt

    That's no moon...
