How Gerorge Lucas sold Star Wars

Lucas: These are my kids.

Rose: All those Star Wars films.

Lucas: All the Star Wars films.

Rose: They were your kids?

Lucas: Well, they are. I loved them, I created them. Im very intimately involved in them. And, obviously, to sell them off

Rose: And you sold them.

Lucas: I sold them off to the the white slavers who take these things and...[laughs]

How can he say that ? sick

He's bitter that they didn't do exactly what he would have done. I'm sure he already regrets saying the "white slavers" bit.

he's like one of those guys who claims to be "so over" his ex, but keeps posting mean bitter stuff about her on his facebook wall.

He's apologised for the comment and praised what Disney is doing with Star Wars.

You can stop attacking him now and worship your new Lord and Saviour DISNEY

He apologized only after people got offended and made a big deal about it. Up until that apology he was acting pissy about Disney/New Star Wars.

Well, I understand. A project like that does feel like your children. And it will take some time for him to get used to this.

I know how it feels, in fact. I developed, wrote and directed a documentary series. I did 22 episodes and they ordered another three when I was totally unavailable. They refused to reschedule, so others wrote and directed the final three episodes. And frankly, I find it hard to be enthusiastic about them... They also terminated the series...

So leave him be.

Yeah. Poor George. I'm sure it was a very difficult decision to sell the franchise, and watch it be very successful without him.......

He got rid of the burden and the PT hater fans didn't help.

Well, he could have made better films of course. Collect some great minds around him, not just yes-men and yes-women. After all, he is the man who disliked ESB the most of all movies... while that is the best appreciated film of the entire saga. So somewhere in history Lucas kinda lost scope on what makes a movie work, or how a great collaboration makes a movie work as he became totally in control of his films.

Honestly, I can recommend any SW to read The Making of... books of the OT. They are excellent, honest. Especially TMO SW and TMO ESB show what a brilliant film maker Lucas was at the time. A true visionary, developing his story as he went along. (he once opened down the words 'Chosen One' for Luke... in ROTJ he claimed very clearly that Yoda and Palpatine were Force users of a different league, that they did NOT use lightsabers... etc etc).

It's during/after his divorce stuff changed in Lucas. You can se that in TMO ROTJ and TMO Indiana Jones. He admitted it himself, he was in a darker place. But his judgement changed as well for these movies. I guess in the Indy movies there was Spielberg as a powerful counterpart. But for ROTJ and everything after that, no strong side kick was there anymore. I fear ESB was the height of the collaboration of Lucas, Kurtz and Kasdan... and Kershner as well, of course. But that trio really made SW step into a momentarily grand universe of stories. Unfortunately cut short, literally in ROTJ.
