Petition to Name Soundstage After "Jedi" Director


By: Lillian Skye

When Pinewood Studio's announced that they will be building a new studio in Cardiff, the capital of Wales, a our friends at The Bearded Trio started a petition to name the studio after the late Return of the Jedi director Richard Marquand. While Marquand, a Cardiff native, is best known for his work with Star Wars, he also directed films such as The Eye of the Needle and The Jagged Edge.

The petition is open now and is accepting signatures on Change.org. The site explains the petitions primary objective: "Having a studio as big as Pinewood Studios coming to Cardiff, their history associated with Star Wars and Marquand being from Cardiff...its only fitting to have a soundstage named after the director." The petition has over 100 signatures, with a goal of  200.
