    I'd take those reports with a grain of salt.

    G+G is a menace to this fandom. He's the worst person in the fandom. He's a sexist.

    and racist as well. Funny thing is he orignally came out liking TLJ for weeks he talked about how he liked it, it wasn't until he saw there was a profit in hating it that he changed his tune>



    The other guy is a writer and small producer in Hollywood. but yeah he's full of poop. He's known for spreading rumors and no one takes him sersiously.

    I mean if you were a respected hollywood writter would you go on Geeks + Gamers?


    it doesn't matter what we think it's what G+G is which is full of crap. I mean would you trust a channel that makes over 100 videos about how Captain Marvel is going to fail? No one respected would ever go on that show and the writer is known for well not being respected.

    I can see George Lucus horror in the sequel trilogy.

    But he can really complain. He should of known what selling to the house of mouse would entail. He has no one but himself to blame.

    I think his horror is mostly with TFA. he had some nice comments of TLJ. and he enjoys visiting sets of Rogue One, Solo and now Mandalorian.

    What did he say about TLJ, other than saying it was beautifully made?

    I think it is a shame if GL felt betrayed by Disney as I think the Disney Star Wars hasnt been that bad it was a hard act to follow after the high standards that GL had set. Maybe it would have been nice out of respect for GL to use his outlines for the sequels should have been used but I was happy how they turned out in the end.

    This is not bad, and it also explains why Lucas also did a good job with Prequels.



    But I think this is better, now people (some of them at least) realized that Prequels weren't half bad thanks to Sequels. [face_laugh]

    I always thought this was going to be the case once the Disney movies started to be released. At the time it was not because I thought the Disney movies would be disastrous but simply because the only direct frame of live action reference to compare them to was the OT. Once new movies came along then it would allow those who didn't appreciate them to place them in a better frame of reference in comparison to more movies.

    I really didn't expect it to turn out the way it did in such short order. I thought Disney would have a longish run before things turned down and even longer before it went completely sour.

    I have to largely agree with that. Why he ever thought Hollywood types like Iger and Kennedy, who are exactly the kind of people who he always wanted to get away from his entire career, would turn around and honor his stories is the mystery. He didn't protect his stories in any way that would have made it difficult like having the movie ready to go with a director, writer, script, casting and pre-production all ready to go then selling.

    Make them cancel a movie that is imminently shooting and restart from scratch. At least that way much of at least the first movie would follow his direction. I mean they'd pretty much completely change it the next movie but at least the one movie would start an actual continuation.

    Lucas sold to Disney because he thought it would be a safe home for his business and be developed appropriately. Like Pixar (which he did own originally!) and to a lesser extent, Muppets and Marvel.

    Instead they (that is Disney AND the new Lucasfilm) took his creation in directions he didn't neccessarily like.

    However, the only reason his sequel "scripts" existed, was to add value to the sales price. Lucasfilm without Star Wars Sequels is nowhere near worth anything as much as they paid him.

    So Lucas is responsible for this - And also not. I think he maybe looking at it like a businessman - "This product is being developed and sold incorrectly", and not as an Artist - "They are destroying my vision!"

    I think he should've thought that Disney was going to make the Sequels after buying the series (otherwise what's the point of buying it anyway), and he should have also expect the things that he personally don't like to see, so I agree he is also responsible. He probably knew that possibility, but he still sold it anyway.

    I think he should've made the Sequels before selling Star Wars to Disney, or he should've added a specification into the contract when he sold it, such as he should direct and write the scenario of the Sequels if Disney ever decides to make it. But he didn't.

    The main point of selling off SW to Disney was to let them make the sequels. So of course, he should've been prepared not to like them much.
    Before deciding to sell the company, Lucas repeatedly said that he wasn't interested in doing the ST.
    I don't think Disney or anyone would agree to buy the rights to SW with the obligation to let Lucas dictate what would happen in the sequels.

    I would not be surprised if Disney really wanted to reboot the PT and do 3 brand new prequel films. Especially after the spur of the moment success that came with TFA.

    However, George obviously had a contract that no matter what Disney did, his six episodes had to remain canon and untouched. So, I feel Disney's way of getting around that was to avoid talking about them. So, it was like "Yes, technically the PT is still canon, but you know, they dont have to be *wink*"

    I don’t think Disney would sign any contract that limited their future direction. They may sign “letters of intent” but they are not strictly worth much.

    I can imagine he signed something so they can’t re edit the OT and PT - but I bet they can (and will!!!!) remake the OT.
