Even during the best of times, George Lucas has never been known as an "actor's director." Watch some behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy and you'll see the actors straining for a reaction or direction from the man. Spielberg he is not.

If you want verbal proof of Lucas' indifference (for lack of a better word) to the acting craft, 'Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace' star Terence Stamp ("Chancellor Valorum") is here to lay it out for you in no uncertain terms. George Lucas is boring.

As we bid farewell to 2012, we're surely remembering the highlights of the outgoing year. In the geek-world, there was probably no bigger moment than when it was announced that George Lucas was selling Lucasfilm to Disney, ushering in a whole new era of 'Star Wars' films. Since that announcement, we've been privy to a series of conversations between Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy, the new Lucasfilm head honcho, and today we have the final video, which you can see after the break.

While we wait patiently (ever so patiently...) for a director to finally be named to helm 'Star Wars: Episode 7', we must look elsewhere to feed our 'Star Wars' hunger.

George Lucas will certainly do nicely! Ever since the news broke that the man would be on board in an advisory role during the development of 'Episode 7' (and beyond), most of us have been wondering just how connected he will be. To hear Lucas tell it, he's just sort of going to be hanging around, waiting for people to ask him something.

George Lucas Reveals His Post-’Star Wars’ Plans and New Movies

George-Lucas

No 'Star Wars: Episode 7' for George Lucas! In case you haven't heard (yeah right), Lucas recently sold his Lucasfilm empire to Disney for a meager $4 billion, giving the future of 'Star Wars' over to the Mouse House and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. A stunning development that immediately reinvigorated the 'Star Wars' brand and turned the entire fanboy focus toward the beloved franchise once again.

But what about George? He'll act as creative consultant on the next 'Star Wars' trilogy, starting with 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' but by and large he'll be leaving the force in someone else's hands. So the question is, what does the man do with his time now?
