The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (producer)

"There is a group of people who are seriously deranged and who we love dearly. That's what makes Star Wars work, in a strange way."
―Rick McCallum

Richard McCallum (born 1952 in Heidelberg, Germany) is a film producer most famous for his work on the Star Wars prequel trilogy films and Special Editons. Unlike most producers, McCallum enjoys shooting on location (rather than on a soundstage) because he likes the feeling of not being in control and that anything can happen. McCallum sometimes jokes that his sole purpose in life is to make what George Lucas wants to happen.

He worked extensively with the British television writer Dennis Potter, producing much of Potter's later work in the late 1980s and early 1990s after Potter parted company with his long-term producer Kenith Trodd. He is the stepson of actor Michael York.

After meeting George Lucas in 1989, McCallum was hired as producer on Lucas' TV series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, which ran from 1992 to 1993 on ABC. He has continued to be Lucas' producer to this day—producing 1994's Radioland Murders, the Special Editions of the original Star Wars trilogy, the compilation films of the Star Wars: Droids and Star Wars: Ewoks animated televsion series, the Star Wars prequel trilogy, as well as the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated television series. His daughter Mousy McCallum played the Padawan Bene in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
