George Lucas considered David Lynch as Return of the Jedi director

Why David Lynch turned down Return of the Jedi! Sci Fi Wire

If there are any more Star Wars Robot Chicken episodes, they really need to do some Lynch-ian parodies.

    This is actually common knowledge. And it wouldn't have been Lynch's first attempt at sci-fi, either, because around the same time that Return of the Jedi came out, Lynch released his big-screen adaptation of Dune (which admittedly hasn't aged as well as Jedi).
