George Lucas

Star Wars is Dead

Stick a fork in Jar Jar Binks ... 'cause the "Star Wars" franchise is done ... FOREVER ... so says intergallactic space god George Lucas.

The Jedi Master's master was leaving Toast in L.A. yesterday when we asked when he was finally going to release the long-awaited 7th, 8th and 9th installments of the greatest space saga of all time.

But judging from Lucas' answer ... it looks like the series will remain frozen in carbonite for the rest of time.

Hopefully, that goes for the Indiana Jones series too ... because NO ONE SURVIVES A NUCLEAR BLAST BY HIDING IN A REFRIGERATOR!!

The banner over the picture of George LUCAS would suggest at a glance (yes, I did) that the Director/Writer is dead -- NOT THE movie!

george lucas blows dog!
those prequels were AWFUL (yes ALL of them)the best best one of the bunch (empire strikes back) wasn't even directed by him it was the only one that wasn't and it was easily the best. when george gets his turdy little hands on stuff- it turns to dog****.
screw you george and you better just retire and stay that way!

I didn't need Lucas too tell me that. The new Star Wars movies + the 3D animated series was enough for me to know it was dead.

Starwars was dead after The New Hope was released and george lucas has been putting us all through a slow painful death ever since. Who over is obsessed with star wars and believes in all the meaning of lucas's BS is about as dumb as a box of rocks.

"because NO ONE SURVIVES A NUCLEAR BLAST BY HIDING IN A REFRIGERATOR"

And the "Death Star" and little green men from "Dagobah" is plausible right? I think the stoner wrote this one...

Reality Check    

GEORGE LUCAS lied about the star wars movies 789. When Star Wars came out he said in a interview the nine movies would be like Shakespeare where you have three main parts. Each three movie installment was supposed to be a part in the story line. like everything else that comes out of Lucas mouth he later lied and backpeddled the whole thing. It is because he is too old and not interested in doing the rest of them because it will take too long and too much involved that h does not want to be part of. So what is the last part of the story line...read the books and go search the internet for the timeline of books that were released. then you get the end game story. George Lucas is a fail.

I met George Lucas at a USC reunion. Biggest arrogant douche bag around. It's sad when you start thinking of yourself as a demi-God when you are just a man like anyone else. I think his tombstone should read: Jar Jar Binks was a better man.

It sounded like he was kidding and he didn't want to be talking with you.

Like they "Rebooted" Star Trek they should "Reboot" Star Wars Episodes 1,2 and 3. Cut back CGI by 70% and get rid of Qui-Gon Jinn.

He already said all this--months ago, in a different interview, a print interview. I guess no one cared at the time. But just because he is REPEATING it now doesn't make it "news."

common sense    

Who cares? They sucked anyways. Orginally & remade they sucked. Sci-fi,vampires, & dragon movies are all stupid. The man earn the right to decide what to do with his money & creation good for him to finally kill the thing. Most in his position would have spun it off or continued on especially with the nut job cult follow still dreaming of more but it is one series that deserved to dead slowly painfully and permantantely.
