    Given how contentious the Lucasfilm sale was and how few of Lucas' ideas survived, I have no expectation that Disney would allow him full creative control, which is what he would want.

    He went from running Lucasfilm to retiring. He might find some middle ground and give SW a boost through his contributions.

    Lucas enjoyed and insisted upon full creative control since 1980. He even thought he could have some influence after selling the company to Disney, and then learned the hard way that they were under no obligation to use his ideas. It's hard for me to imagine he'd suddenly start compromising now.

    Filoni is talented but possession seems a bit beyond his powers. :p

    But not for a Lucas. ;)

    Wow, George could become a Penguins fan. Huge upgrade.

    If Filoni strikes George down in hatred he will become ALL STAR WARS!

    I wonder how long it will take before Filoni can do his own movie, 10 years after his mando connected universe thing? He's a great writer and idea man, got decent directing and producing, but you still see he makes mistakes and the episodes aren't as good as could have been. Maybe one day Filoni will be the creative force behind all star wars stories. Something to wonder about, he's already been all over and KK listens to him about the future about star wars. I can see maybe him being the one to tell origins of the jedi and the force as he understands it almost as well as GL.

    Some would say a healthy smattering of Lucas's ideas were in the Sequel Trilogy. Lucas already knew they were under no obligation to use his ideas.

    Well, but to be fair, a promise like that might not be such a good idea coming from you given your poor recent record on predictions that you were emphatic about- what year is the next SW movie coming?

    Nonetheless, I'm accepting your promise.

    Given he was the one who put her where she is, and their personal friendship, I am inclined to think she would try to make it happen if George were to show up and ask to direct an episode.

    Recent? Hell, my predictions have always been terrible. I’m still waiting for that August trailer that finally definitively shows that Jakku is in fact Tatooine. :p

    ...still I’m 100% positive I got this one right. ;)

    I’m not saying it will happen, as I’m 100% sure George is done and not coming back for anything Star Wars, but I stepped down as CEO of a nonprofit I founded, and took a non-CEO job with the same nonprofit wherein I answer...to the new CEO. Because I was tired of the CEO job, and all the fundraising that came with it, and wanted to focus on research. Not every decision is status-driven. Sometimes people cede control for a little more mental freedom.

    You are right. But as I said, he sold it to retire. But I don't think many people would do that, IMO. Maybe my analogy wasn't the best, as I'm the sure the vast majority of people who sell a small business like a restaurant to retire probably wouldn't ever do that, but I guess in other lines of work it can be seen as more doable.

    I don’t disagree. George is done, I believe.

    Though some have been known to come out of retirement...from time to time. ;)

    Retirement is retirement. Retirement means all different things to people.

    I highly doubt Lucas would come back in any capacity beyond visiting the set from time to time and giving some casual input. I certainly don't think he would ever take over any sort of leadership role since he is retired. It wouldn't completely shock me if he returned to direct a special episode of a TV show, but I also think that is very unlikely.

    KK still stands after many years of NOPE, it seems, all hail the queen.

    I'm not someone who wants KK removed, but insulting everyone who does is baiting. Not everyone dislikes KK's leadership for sexist reasons. Some people just don't like a lot of the decisions she's made since taking over. Don't just drop news links as a way to bait those you don't agree with.

    ...imagine paying hundreds of dollars in Disney stock to ask the CEO a random clickbait rumour? At least make it a wild one like the script for TROS being put together by manatees and idea balls.

    Your post wasn't very specific. Just be careful how you say things, so that you don't start a pointless fight.

    Despite rumors of Kevin Feige secretly having influence off how star wars moving forwards and him one day taking over, He is only involved with star wars tv when watching the mandalorian. KK is the one who spearheads us into the new era of star wars telivision.

    A baby manatee is essentially responsible for my current life, so I think this is plausible.
