    I just read a huge chunk of this, some I've come across before, but the best part for me was the Academy of Achievement interview - love it! Shows some of Lucas' ideas about society and so on and made me think a bit and feel sad for the fact we're so closed in our little worlds that we can't change in fear of being killed by the stampede. Thank you, Keeper_of_Swords!

    This is the greatest thread ever. Here lies the proof that Lucas changes his mind about everything, and even lies about some things.

    Interesting article Jedi_Ford_Prefect


    When was the interview with Connie Chung done, which appears on page1 of this thread?

    I don?t know when exactly, but I think it would be around when Episode 2 was released or after because there?s written that there was a clip when Yoda says ?Begun the clone wars have,? before the interview.


    Thanks Darth Ambitious. Glad you found the information useful.

    "I don't see how you could redeem somebody who kills people in cold blood."

    ...says the guy who redeemed Darth Vader.

    Yeah, like all artists and storytellers. Everyone makes it up as they go along, ultimately.

    Darth_Ambitious: This is the greatest thread ever. Here lies the proof that Lucas changes his mind about everything, and even lies about some things.

    All it means is that over a long period of time, he sees things differently or modifies his opinions. Most human beings do, it's called living. The difference is that the average person doesn't have their opinions printed in magazines and newspapers and come back to haunt them years later. D.A., if you had your opinions from 5, 10, 15 years ago recorded and then played back for you today, would you think and feel the same about everything? I seriously doubt it.

    There are also a lot of examples of Lucas being quite consistent over the years. His descriptions of the prequels printed in STARLOG in 1983 are pretty much what the prequels became.

    Most artists are creative thinkers and constantly view things from fresh points of view. That's a big part of what makes Lucas who he is.

    Yeah, anyone is going to be prone to changing their minds.

    I want to know where Darth_Ambitious is coming to the conclusion that Lucas is lying about this stuff.

    Darth_Ambitious: " This is the greatest thread ever. Here lies the proof that Lucas changes his mind about everything, and even lies about some things. "



    Evolving, refining, reassessing, and/or changing your thoughts over the course of thirty plus years is about the most natural thing that any normal, non-psychotic person would or will go through. Id be much more worried about an individual who DOESNT change ever.

    As interesting as the "Film Review Star Wars Special" article was, it's one of the worst copyedited pieces I think I've ever seen.

    Thanks to Keeper_of_Swords for posting it, though. :)

    Keeper_of_Swords, this is absolutely incredible. You have just made Star Wars better than it ever was for me (believe me, it was already very good). Lucas is a genius.
