Not to say that Jackson wouldn’t root for future Middle-earth movies, based on his praise of Lucas for allowing “Star Wars” to continue on film. “Obviously if he had interest in doing himself, then that’s what we would all like to see,” he said. “But it’s better to have more ‘Star Wars’ films than no ‘Star Wars’ films.”
“The one thing that Tolkien said is that the wonderful thing with mythology — and George Lucas has created a mythology of his own — is that it keeps getting handed from one person to the next, and each person embellishes it and expands it,” Jackson added. “It actually keeps mythology alive, because it should be a living, breathing organic thing where it expands over time. It doesn’t just stay stagnant. So I think what George is doing with ‘Star Wars’ is terrific.”
