George Lucas criticizes ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’
Stars Wars creator George Lucas has criticized the “retro” tone of “The Force Awakens”.
Until now Lucas has been relatively quiet about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first film made without his involvement.
Now, in an interview with journalist Charlie Rose, Lucas described the original and prequel trilogy as his “kids” and compared Disney, who bought the rights to the franchise, “to white slavers that take these things”.
Lucas said that the film studio didn’t want his input in the new movie, “They wanted to do a retro movie. I don’t like that. They weren’t that keen to have me involved anyway, but if I get in there, I’m just going to cause trouble, because they’re not going to do what I want them to do. And I don’t have the control to do that any more, and all I would do is muck everything up. And so I said, ‘OK, I will go my way, and I’ll let them go their way.’”
The Force Awakens is likely to break the all-time box-office world record of $2.78bn currently held by Avatar.
