Among the revelations: While Phillippe couldn't formally announce a distribution deal for People, he stressed that it will be appearing at a theater near you in the not-too-distant future (he talked about agreements covering English-speaking territories and a few other countries). In addition, he noted that the crew's followup will focus on the aforementioned octopus, who successfully (and allegedly) predicted the results of Germany's World Cup games before meeting his maker last month. Phillippe noted that he'd gotten to spend some quality time with Paul just a few weeks before his death -- and refrained from referring to him as "delicious."
The screening's capper was a literal blast: An outrageously costumed marching band trotted into the screening, held at the King Center, on the Metro State campus, to perform a special, Lucas-centric number set to the tune of Run D.M.C.'s "It's Tricky" and rapped by a megaphone-wielding Boba Fett (as seen in the photo above). The screwy salute provided an appropriate finale for a festival that never seems to run short of surprises.
Here's the trailer for The People vs. George Lucas:
