Not gonna lie, I saw part of this thread title with the rest cut off and for a second I got REALLY excited thinking that this had something to do with the small movies George talked about making after his retirement:
"I'm moving away from all my businesses, I'm finishing all my obligations and I'm going to retire to my garage with my saw and hammer and build hobby movies," Lucas said. "I've always wanted to make movies that were more experimental in nature, and not have to worry about them showing in movie theatres."
Aw man.. Sorry to disappoint.
Haha, no problem! This is definitely a thread I'm going to have to frequent regardless.
Lucas has been saying this from the late 70s/early 80s. Either it's just words and he's not going to make any experimental films, or they're so experimental and private that we aren't going to watch them at all.
Who knows, maybe he has made 200 of them already and we'll never know.
He may have started down that road with "Howard the Duck". Maybe he got spooked when it didn't go so well.
