As some of you probably already know, David Lynch was approached by George Lucas to direct the third film in the Star Wars trilogy, Return of the Jedi.

Here’s a short excerpt from an interview David Lynch did with MTV in the 80s addressing the Return of the Jedi rumors:

MTV: Is it true you almost directed “Return of the Jedi”? How close did you come?

Lynch: Not close at all. I had a meeting with George [Lucas]. I like George. It was his thing. I said, “You should direct this. It’s your thing! It’s not my thing.”

MTV: Did he flat-out offer it to you at the time?

Lynch: Yeah!

MTV: But you immediately declined.

Lynch: I called him the next day.

YouTuber “C-SPIT” re-imagined Return of the Jedi as if Lynch had actually directed it.
