    George Lucas says he sold ‘Star Wars’ to ‘white slavers’ at Disney

    While Disney has to be pleased with the way its $4 billion acquisition of Lucasfilm is turning out, thanks to the galactic success of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the man who created the “Star Wars” universe doesn’t feel the same way.

    In an interview with Charlie Rose [see video below], George Lucas spoke about everything from his and Disney’s branching vision to the deal itself. Lucas, who has always been protective of his series and even refers to them as his “kids,” hasn’t been looking back well on the deal with Disney (via Collider).


    “I sold them to the white slavers that takes these things, and…,” Lucas said before laughing and deciding it better not to finish. (In the interview, Lucas mentions the “white slavers” around the 50-minute mark.)

    The father of “Star Wars” also opened up about why he and Disney were split on their decisions for the franchise’s future.

    “They looked at the stories, and they said, ‘We want to make something for the fans,’” Lucas said. “They decided they didn’t want to use those stories, they decided they were going to do their own thing. … They weren’t that keen to have me involved anyway — but if I get in there, I’m just going to cause trouble, because they’re not going to do what I want them to do. And I don’t have the control to do that anymore, and all I would do is muck everything up,” he said. “And so I said, ‘OK, I will go my way, and I’ll let them go their way.’”

    “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has been a massive success in the two weeks it has been out, becoming the ninth-highest box office performer ever with $1.23 billion in global box office receipts.

    No one wanted another "Phantom Menace," George.

    You would think a real interviewer might have followed up that stupid comment with a probing question. Isn't Grorge just as culpable as the white slavers? Isn't that 4 billion blood money? Just another self hating old queen.

    Maybe Howard should sell his show to some "white slavers" that want to make something for the fans. Then we could enjoy a new show and he could bitch about not having control.

    Take the $4 Billion and be happy on that fucking Skywalker Ranch. You fucked up the "first" 3 episode arc and would have killed this franchise if you had kept it.

    The new movie is great, and I say that having read a bunch of the books in the various series which had pretty interesting story lines that I wished they had used for the movie, but cannot now given what transpired in The Force Awakens.

    He married a strong black women from the south side of Chicago. Even had a wedding ceremony/celebration in Obama's old stomping ground of Hyde Park. Go figure.

    This. The prequels were horrible. Had Lucas been heavily involved with this film, it's very very unlikely he would have improved the final product.

    I realize rich old man George is free to refer to the SW movies as his "kids." But let's state the obvious: those movies are not living entities. You cannot sell an inanimate object into slavery.

    We know one thing, it wouldn't have been a Star Wars Lite class reunion of his original movie.

    But he should have know what would have happened if he sold to Disney.

    Did George Lucas have sole control over that Christmas special I've seen youtube clips of? That was so embarrassing.
