If by "leaked" you mean "offically released", then yes.

Jeez. It doesn't even sound like him.

Oh, you wacky kids and your sweet Lucasian geekery. So cute.

(I know, I know, me too.)

If only Mr. Lucas could stop fiddling with his old movies and put all of his efforts into his new movies. In the Greedo clip, he talks about replacing the scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" where Indiana Jones shoots the swordsman because it's not "heroic"? It seems like Mr. Lucas doesn't even understand that both Han Solo (shooting Greedo) and Indiana Jones (shooting the swordsman) are bad boys, not goodie-goodie Luke Skywalkers. Alas.

It's a joke. You know what today is, right?

If these are real, I'll deep throat a (lit) lightsaber.

I thought it sounded like him. I've seen him speak inj person, too.

It bears a resemblance to his voice, but what he is saying doesn't sound like anything he'd say. And where are all the other people on the commentary? And the part where he talks about the scream during ESB: The scream he was talking about was actually recorded for RotJ and not the ESB:SE. (It's the Emperor's scream after Vader chucks him down the chasm.)

Not to mention the date these were "leaked" and the fact that they reside in a folder called "aprilfools."

Yeah. The Lucas voice is too high, and [glances at his post's title, shrugs].

What's funny is that I wouldn't put it past Lucas to say some of the things that this guy was saying! Like the re-occuring "my daughters thought....". HA.

I'll never forgive him for making Greedo shoot first, nor the new Jaba palace dance/song deal (double ugh).

Lucas is a major tool.

What's really funny is how not funny the commentaries are. I assume they're all full of sly fanboy jabs at Lucas that I don't get.
