So Rick McCallum is Out of the Star Wars Picture
So evidently, amid news that Disney had bought up Star Wars, no one noticed until now that consummate yes-man Rick McCallum quietly... retired?
Anyone who's followed anything relating to Star Wars for the last two decades knows that McCallum has pretty much been the public face of Star Wars, and he's been in one behind-the-scenes featurette after another, serving the role of Wormtongue to George Lucas. Seriously, there's a fairly solid chance that we got the prequels we did because of McCallum.
Peace out, McCallum. Don't let the blast door hit your ass on the way out.
