George Lucas Star Wars

After Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, Star Wars creator George Lucas thought that the studio would be using some of his drafts and stories to develop a brand new trilogy. However, a new memoir by Disney CEO Bob Iger tells us otherwise. Despite the fact that Lucas stayed on as a creative consultant, Disney went in an entirely different direction with the Star Wars franchise and moved forward with Star Wars: The Force Awakens from writer and director J.J. Abrams and co-writers Michael Arndt and Lawrence Kasdan.

Now excerpts from said memoir reveal how unhappy Lucas was with that decision. More on this below.

Abrams had a chance to speak about the meaning of the title. While he couldn’t provide any specifics, he did leave fans enough to go on.

Additionally, Abrams addressed the mysterious laugh that was heard at the end of The Rise of Skywalker trailer, and how George Lucas had a hand in shaping the film. Check out all of this in the full report here below.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Created by Star Wars creator George Lucas, the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars first debuted back in 2008. It ran for five seasons on Cartoon Network until 2013, and ended with a sixth season known as “The Lost Missions” on Netflix in 2014.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2018, however, the show was resurrected. Dave Filoni—who developed, wrote, and was the supervising director on Clone Wars; created its successor Star Wars Rebels and the upcoming Star Wars Resistance; and is someone many fans strongly believe should be creatively involved in helping to make upcoming Star Wars movies—announced during a 10th anniversary celebration for the show that The Clone Wars is coming back.

See what Filoni had to say about the big news below, along with a trailer for the show’s return and a poster.

George Lucas Star Wars

It’s no secret that George Lucas had planned on releasing a new Star Wars trilogy before he sold it to Disney for $4 billion. A trilogy of trilogies of sorts. This new trilogy would have ended his vision for the saga. But that wasn’t the case after the release of J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens. But no one knew about what Lucas had in store, until now.

A new excerpt from James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction book reveals that there was more science to the Force than originally thought. So if you needed a better explanation for midi-chlorians, then you would have gotten it in his new trilogy. More on the story below.

Disney Wants To Reimagine Classic ‘Star Wars’ Parody ‘Hardware Wars’

Star Wars parody Hardware Wars

In 1977, the world was amazed and delighted by the now iconic film Star Wars. The following year, a short parody film by the name of Hardware Wars found its way into the hearts of millions. With characters by the name of Fluke Starbucker, Augie “Ben” Doggie, Princess Anne-Droid, Ham Salad, and Chewchilla the Wookiee Monster, the short film’s cast was an obvious tongue-in-cheek referencing to the original Star Wars roles. Household equipment made up the vast majority of props in the parody, hence the name. Hilarious and goofy, the video lampoon was and is a cult classic to this day. As a matter of fact, I just watched it again and laughed all the way through.

The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan's Journey

The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan’s Journey
Amazon Instant Video
Directed by Bradley Weatherholt
Official Website | Ministry of Cinema
Not Rated | 80 Minutes
Release Date: September 14, 2016

Midichlorians. The Trade Federation. Watto. The coarseness of sand. Jar-Jar freakin’ Binks. Oh, and you can’t forget…. “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!”

George LucasStar Wars prequels comprise what is possibly the most controversial motion picture trilogy of all time. Despite grossing hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office and selling countless DVD and Blu-ray copies, Episodes I through III remain a serious bone of contention for ferociously devoted fans of the Star Wars universe for many reasons.

Bradley Weatherholt’s Indiegogo-funded documentary The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan’s Journey provides — through a series of insightful and provocative interviews with open-minded admirers of the films and their thematic elements and links to the original trilogy –- a pointed critical analysis of the prequel trilogy’s multitude of perceived narrative and technical flaws. Rather than serve as the set-up for a rude, feature-length rebuttal of the faults that have fueled many a furious blog post or chatroom discussion, detractors of these unjustly-derided intergalactic adventures to look at those faults once more, but placed in different contexts and interpreted through a series of unbiased points-of-view.

George Lucas Isn’t Involved With ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Script, Per Screenwriter

Indiana Jones

Earlier this year, Disney confirmed they would be releasing Indiana Jones 5 in 2019. The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg, with Harrison Ford reprising the title role he’s been playing since 1981. Given how well the actor’s return to playing Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was received, it only made sense that we get to see Ford play Dr. Jones once more.

But like the Star Wars films, some are worried that George Lucas will have some influence on the creative direction of the franchise. However, we might not have to worry about that any longer. According to David Koepp, Lucas might not be as involved as we originally thought. Check out what screenwriter Koepp had to say here below.
