An olive branch from Disney would be a nice gesture as Dave really isn't getting any younger.
Was that really the case? The documenatry points to other ideas. I agree that Disney should extend an olive branch to him. Its not like the franchise has suffered as a result.
It seems it really was the case and yes he did wish Richard M dead - listen to Rebel Force Radio
I read an old letters page in a 1978/9 SW Weekly where a young lad was citing Prowse even then as the source for Darth being Luke's dad.
Seems Lucas 'changed' the script after that so to muddy the waters. Dave really is a bitter old man but despite what he's done it would be nice to see him invited to the odd event.
