Some Directors are Dave*Phil Rodney, a legendary Lucasfilm worked in some capacity on every Star Wars project since 2008 The Clone Wars Movie series. In The Disney Gallery: MandalorianHe revealed that he almost blew up his chance to work on any of the Star Wars plan…because he believes that his first call from Lucasfilm Ltd is a prank.
Before getting a Philo-Thani called in for an interview the work The Clone Wars He is one of the picture on Nick’s Avatar: The Last Airbender. His colleague Nick know that he is a huge Star Wars fan, so when he received a call from Lucasfilm Animation(yet to be announced for the expansion of Lucasfilm’s live action project), he assumes that this is the”guy from SpongeBob”pulling his leg:
“Someone from Lucasfilm Animation and I’m like, no Lucasfilm Animation.’ I think I have been so excited Revenge of the Sith Come out and say it all the time, you from SpongeBob Don’t spoil my stamp on the Star Wars. So I think this is a prank call…you get so tired of being selected on the you just like, this is SpongeBob Guys, I know it.’ And I’m like,’Oh, so you’re doing The Clone WarsBut you already did that, right?”
Philip Rodney laugh when he tells the story of how skeptical he is in a call, only to realize the producer’s behavior is telling the truth after he did what he assumes is a prank, the appointment for the”interview”and”George Lucas.”
Thankfully, he kept the appointment and impressed Lucas so much that he became a series Creator, Executive producer, voice actor and Director, over the last ten years of the iconic Star Wars Story. Take the guys from SpongeBob.
