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

by Eric Walkuski November 05, 2012 10:15 AM
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?

We were all pretty flabbergasted to hear that a 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was in the works and that Disney would be behind the next big-screen chapter in the 'Star Wars' franchise.

It's easy to poke fun at George Lucas. He directed the prequel trilogy after all, and refuses to acknowledge the original cuts of the first three 'Star Wars' movies. But when Lucas does good, that's no joke. And today word broke that Lucas will be giving the majority of the money he got for selling Lucasfilm to educational philanthropy.

By the time 'Star Trek: Enterprise' was cancelled after four seasons, it was if the world said "Hey guys, until you have something new or interesting to offer us, please go away." It was the best thing to happen to the franchise, as 'Trek' was rebooted and became a hit movie. 'Star Wars' should learn from that, especially after you watch this trailer for 'Star Wars: Detours.'

You know, we've basically gotten the message at this point: the 'Star Wars' TV series isn't going to be happening any time soon.  Regardless of how many scripts may have been written for 'Star Wars: Underworld,' there's a whole host of logistical and financial reasons preventing a live-action 'Star Wars' series from making it to air.  Still, the latest explanation from producer Rick McCallum might be something of a blessing in disguise.

The ‘Star Wars’ universe is riddle with mysteries. Did Han shoot first? How come Chewbacca doesn’t get a medal at the end of ‘A New Hope?’ And how come Yoda insists on speaking in semi-reverse order? While most of those questions remain unanswered, a new video at least attempts to fix Yoda’s bizarre speech pattern. Wait, I’m sorry. Fix it, they do.
