There are only a few entertainment-related issues on the Internet individuals prefer to argue about greater than George Lucas and the choices he made when it got here to Star Wars, however no matter how you’re feeling, it’s price remembering and making an allowance for how a lot he risked to wager on himself and wager on the way forward for Star Wars. He had a transparent thought of the story he wished to inform, and he gambled to retain that artistic management (at the very least for a very long time).
Not a very excessive share of filmmakers would try this. Many would take the safety, even when it left last say of their franchise in another person’s fingers. Then once more, it is also price protecting in thoughts that followers have been simply as vocal and located as many causes to complain about Star Wars after Disney assumed management and began utilizing its personal concepts. I’m certain Lucas does not miss that half at the very least.
