George Lucas On Why He Quit ‘Star Wars’

November 23, 2015

Star Wars creator George Lucas recently sat down with Vanity Fair and explained why he  is no longer involved with the franchise.


Early on, Lucas served as a creative consultant on next month’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but Disney chose not to use his ideas for the movie and the creator stepped back from J.J. Abrams’ film. A week after the first trailer debuted in November 2014, Lucas said he hadn’t even seen it.

“You go to make a movie, and all you do is get criticised,” Lucas told Vanity Fair when asked why he moved on from Star Wars. “People try to make decisions about what you’re going to do before you do it. And it’s not much fun. And you can’t experiment. You have to do it a certain way. I don’t like that. I never did.”

“I started out with experimental films and then I want to go back to experimental films. Of course, nobody wants to see experimental films,” Lucas added.
