George Lucas On The Future Of “Star Wars” Films

Sounds like the criticism Lucas has received over his edits to the original trilogy and the shambles that are the prequels, is taking it’s toll.

“Why would I make any more,” Lucas says of the “Star Wars” movies, “when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?”

George Lucas Knitting At Starbucks

Apparently George Lucas visits Starbucks every day for coffee and a spot of knitting. Who knew? Maybe he’s knitting Luke’s new outfit for the next remastered version of Star Wars.

George Lucas Without The Beard?

There’s a reason George Lucas never shaves that beard off.

Lucas Messes With Star Wars Again - Turns Obi-Wan Into Screaming Lunatic

Looks like Lucas has been dicking with the Blu-ray release of Star Wars and unhappy Fans have gotten hold of the Blu-ray footage (leaked out of China), and they’re dissecting it at, the forums and the DVDTalk forums.

And yes, Greedo still shoots first in the new release!

Some examples of Lucas’s meddling:

Obi-Wan’s “Krayt Dragon” call in “A New Hope” gets replaced and it ends up sounding like the old fart is having his nuts squeezed way too hard. (BTW, this is just the synced up audio with the original footage).

Vader screams “Noooooooo!” when he kills the Emperor in “Return of the Jedi”. This just sounds stupid to me and there was much more emotion in the scene with just Vaders lifeless silent mask. (This is from the actual Blu-ray).

Blinking Ewoks. This one I may be able to live with as the eyes of the Ewoks are made just a little more lifelike.
