The Resistance Broadcast – Interview: Lucasfilm’s ILM Animation Director Hal Hickel
On this episode we are joined by Hal Hickel, the animation director of ILM! Hal has been working with Lucasfilm and Star Wars since The Phantom Menace. He shares stories from throughout his career, spanning back to working on the original Toy Story for Pixar. There are a lot of heartwarming, charming, and hilarious stories here, including how Hal inadvertently pissed off George Lucas once because of an edit he made to a notable scene, Mark Hamill’s return as Luke in The Mandalorian, working with Favreau and Filoni, and an absolutely wonderful story about a letter he wrote to Lucasfilm as a kid.
