George Lucas on Star Wars: "I sold them to white slavers"




George Lucas thinks that his own 'Star Wars' has made Hollywood scared to try anything new. https://t.co/AVMCGvs2qR pic.twitter.com/jVmwb6a7SI

-Berates Hollywood's reliance on existing IP
-Says they are afraid to try anything new

Of course, the only way you could really do that [make money] is not take chances. Only do something that’s proven,” Lucas added. “You gotta remember, ‘Star Wars’ came from nowhere. ‘American Graffiti‘ came from nowhere. There was nothing like it. Now, if you do anything that’s not a sequel or not a TV series or doesn’t look like one, they won’t do it!”

-Says he's going back to making Indies, cause Hollywood sucks balls now

If you had any doubt about how Lucas feels about his Star Wars films, he goes on to call them his “kids” and then says, “I sold them to the white slavers that takes these things, and [laughs]”, before wisely choosing to stop following that line of thought.

So i completely agree with him,its why i don't want TFA to be the highest grossing movie of all time. Hollywood is green lightingt less ad less original ideas and this is not helping AT ALL. Say what you will about the weakeness of Avatar, at least it was "original" (yes i'm aware he copied existing stories). If you are interested in the business,watch the interview
