We have already shown you that remarkable sequence from Inside Llywen Davis, where Poe Dameron and Kylo Ren were singing about how they really did not want to be shot into space. Taking the concept a step further into fray, we now present Star Wars: Please, Kathleen Kennedy.

In this version, it’s those bulb-headed jazz musicians from the cantina scene in Star Wars IV: A New Hope who are cutting their demo track, with the help of an producer who is so sick of their jizz track (that’s what that genre of music is called, no kidding) , and the Force ghost of George Lucas, played by producer Stephen Vitale of Stephen Vitale Films. The production values are fantastic, so this took some time and thought, and a lot of love.

Kathleen Kennedy, as you may know, is president of LucasFilm Ltd, and producer of not only the Star Wars film currently in release and the next three scheduled to be produced, but has had a hand in of dozens of other films geeksĀ  including every other Star Wars film done to date, and others going all the way back to Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1982. More than George Lucas or Steven Spielberg put together, she has been a driving force behind more geek audience films than any other single person alive.

Enjoy.

Oh, and yes, Krypton Radio is the only radio station on Earth playing this cut – we’re pretty sure, anyway.
