''They didn't use my stories, I have no idea what they're doing'' Man...that makes me sad for George...
After the last last 3 I don't think I can take any more of his stories
you will be, you will be
Thank God they didn't use his stories.
show some respect
The expanded universe was consistently written by award-winning authors of all stripes, yet he scribbled the prequels himself without a second thought: this is what unchallenged egotism creates. Enjoy George, you paid for this karma in full.
Dude, he's a billionaire. A BILLIONAIRE. And he became one by telling his stories, not the stories of award winning authors. Your comment was awful. Apparently unchallenged egotism creates a billionaire. I wish karma would give me billions of dollars.
I still shake my head at his choice to sell out to Disney. Personally, I would have been like, "No! Mine! You can no have! Bleh!"
I don't need to know about GL's franchise. About the parents, the children, and the grandchildren? Since when they were brought up in the SW films? I'm beginning to like The Sequel Trilogy & JJ & Kathy. I liked THE COMPLETE SAGA OF ALL 6. But George, stop talking about TFA. No longer your baby. And I seen his face turn, it looked like he don't give a damn.
I though that too. Very uncomfortable and defensive.
Wasn't much of an interview, he also looked a little uncomfortable. I still think the opening scene in episode IV is the greatest opening scene in movie history. Okay the prequels were not mind blowing and if I were to watch them I'd probably screen select the best bits. I have faith that JJ will be on point and do us all justice (he F'ing better) may the force be with us all. And I'll end on this... George Lucas, thank you for creating the greatest galaxy far far away a long time ago.
On their own, George's prequel trilogy stories were not terrible. The biggest issue, however, is the fact that he should have surrounded himself with talented and inspired partners that could have helped add to them and strengthen the weak points instead of simpering "yes men" that simply told him what he wanted to hear. Lets not forget that Lucas had a lot of help in making the original trilogy, and it still stands up as fresh thirty plus years later.
