Harry over at Ain’t it Cool News got this today and we wanted to make sure that we posted it on our site as well to help remove any confusion that is out there.
Peter asked me to send you the following in response to a story that appeared on the Cinescape web site:
“Peter has asked me to express his concern at a recent story you (Cinescape) ran on your site (Cinescape) entitled “Jackson slams SW1”.
Your (Cinescape) story claimed that Peter had made negative comments about The Phantom Menace to the Scottish Daily Record newspaper.
Peter has never spoken to this newspaper, he did not make these comments, and if you read the original newspaper story, The Phantom Menace comments are attributed to an ” insider”, not Peter.
Peter has nothing but the highest respect for the Star Wars films and the people that make them. He does not condone your (Cinescape’s) sloppy attempt to create a rivalry between the two trilogies.
We would like you (Cinescape) to print a retraction on your web site explaining the incorrectly attributed comments.
