George Lucas Still Hasn’t Seen The Force Awakens Teaser.

George-Lucas-Kathleen-KennedyIt’s been almost 10 days since the teaser trailer for the most anticipated movie in the Galaxy has been released. It appears that Star Wars creator George Lucas is amongst the few who still hasn’t seen the teaser. Find out why, after the jump…


Lucas spoke to PageSix at Bloomberg Businessweek’s 85th anniversary, which he attended with his wife, DreamWorks Animation chairwoman Mellody Hobson.


From PageSix:

The original “Star Wars” creator astonishingly told Page Six when we asked him what he thought of Abrams’ 88-second teaser that’s managed to dominated popular culture, “I don’t know anything about it. I haven’t seen it yet.”


When we further asked Lucas why he hasn’t seen the clip, he explained, “Because it’s not in the movie theater. I like going to the movies and watching the whole thing there.


“I plan to see it when it’s released.”



A year ago, Lucas’ son, Jett Lucas, said in an interview that his dad, who’s credited as a creative consultant on the new film, was “constantly talking to J.J.,” and that “J.J. was handpicked.” But when we asked Lucas if he was curious to see what Abrams has done with the new “Star Wars,” Lucas said, “Not really.”


Well, Mr. Lucas might have not seen the teaser but it doesn’t hurt us to watch it again for the thousandth time. 🙂

    Well he doesn’t have to see the trailer does he I’m sure he has access to heaps of footage anyways 😮

    • December 8, 2014 at 3:50 pm

      I am pretty sure he has 100% confidence in them, otherwise he would not have sold it & let them continue his legacy (“I have full confidence in Kathleen Kennedy) & he has probably already told them what the can do & what they can not.

      For the first time ever he will be able to see a part of his creation finished & not be bothered by small details in the movie that he was not happy with during production, I can totally understand why he does not want to see it before it hits the theater 🙂

  • December 8, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    Wow. Okay. That’s really strange, but huh..okay..huh…yeah..okay

  • December 8, 2014 at 2:30 pm

    I really think George likes ‘playing’ with the media because he despises the intrusion sometimes, so he’s not always honest with them, which is fair enough I wouldn’t like being asked stuff all the time either.

    • December 8, 2014 at 9:52 pm

      My thoughts exactly. Answering one question usually leads to more questions. Safe bet is to deny any knowledge in the first place.

  • December 8, 2014 at 2:37 pm

    “Can’t edit it, not interested.”

  • December 8, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    How can one watch the trailer for 1000 times. Some spasm? It was very mediocre. The toddler-droid and the cut-yourself-lightsaber, were the opposite of creative. The rest was copy-past original SW.

    It is hopefully not representative for the final movie. But let’s see. Surely the trailer is nothing to get overexcited about. Or is it?

    • December 8, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      Boo hoo! Waaaaa! Dat dwoid was stoopid! Dat sabew was silwy! It wooked two muuch wike OT and PT butt nut enuf like dem or ev’n newwww enuf! Waaaaaaaa!

      Chill out and embrace the fun of Star Wars, man. You don’t even know the context of this stuff yet.

          LOL! Derth Nadir, that was the best comment I’ve ever seen! 😀

      • December 9, 2014 at 4:43 am

        Excuse me good sir, can we please worship you as a god? Please?

      • December 9, 2014 at 8:56 pm

        1000000 Percent agree. Some of those people just need to stfu and wait till the movie comes out before judging so much.

    • December 9, 2014 at 5:44 am

      There is no lightsaber design that does not carry a blatant and absurd (by real life standards) risk of self-injury, that’s part of the fantasy element. A saber with a crossguard would be no more dangerous to the welder than a regular saber, and is far, far, far less likely to cut him than either a double-sided saber or two single sabers.

      And you’re just flat-out wrong about the droid. It remains to be seen whether it’s an interesting character or an annoying one but the design is extremely clever and looks great.

      • December 9, 2014 at 6:30 pm

        To me the droid looks like Wall-E design that has little resemblance of the Starwars design. Starwars tech has its own “design logic” and ball droids glued together at an infinitessimal point do not fit in. Thats a matter of tast, not right or wrong.

        • December 9, 2014 at 8:02 pm

          okay, then my opinion is that your opinion is kind of stupid, betrays a lack of understanding of Star Wars tech and aesthetic, and doesn’t hold water

          and since it’s “just an opinion”, it’s just as valid as yours and therefore not open to criticism and correction

          (seems it’s pretty easy to win an argument by making vague and unsupported pronouncements and then acting like a petulant child to preemptively invalidate any criticism)

      • December 9, 2014 at 6:34 pm

        I am obviously not a member of the Coruscant Lightsaber Savety Association. Nontheless I maintain that a cross-lightsaber looks like a silly knights templar design that you would want to avoid when making a movie about a galaxy far far away. That again is entirely a matter of tast.

        • December 9, 2014 at 7:50 pm

          if you think a “Knights Templar” design isn’t valid star wars design then you don’t like and possibly don’t understand Star Wars and are on the wrong website

          it’s space fantasy, not science fiction

  • December 8, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    The grey picture of Lucas and Abrams is most contrieved. Two “great” directors discussing. I’am sure they went through thousands to photo takes to select one were JJ looked enganging and George looked interested.

    • December 8, 2014 at 9:54 pm

      I think you missed the contrived part and the true meaning of the Lucas JJ picture.
      JJ is being tapped to do Ep7.
      Super Eight would be his directors audition.
      When JJ turned down Star Wars was simply a media rouse.

  • December 8, 2014 at 3:09 pm

    It almost looks like the Creator lost his interest in Star Wars at all…..doesn´t make me happy…

    • December 8, 2014 at 4:15 pm

      Or he is like some other people who want to experience it in a certain atmosphere i.e. the big screen. He might have been too busy to get to the theater the first time.
      I also get the feeling that he may have misunderstood what they were asking and he thought they were talking about the actual film itself.

    • December 9, 2014 at 10:49 am

      Lucas gave over 20 years of his life to the Star Wars films. Ten for each trilogy.

      That’s a lot of emotional investment before giving it all up for adoption (Disney being the new parent).

      The media then – essentially – asks, “Mr Lucas have you visited that child you gave up for adoption?”

      Anyone still surprised he said no?

  • December 8, 2014 at 3:29 pm

    look they fired his writer the toy story guy and probably shit all over his treatment

  • December 8, 2014 at 3:38 pm

    He’s still bitter over the way the prequels were treated and people getting excited about a new one he isn’t involved in just adds salt to the wound. I guess $4 billion doesn’t buy peace. 😉

    • December 8, 2014 at 4:34 pm

      The prequels deserved most of the criticism they got. George has admitted before that he is not a great writer or director of actors. Remember, “faster, more intense” was his main direction. That just isn’t enough sometimes. The prequels show that lack of writing and directing skill. He is a great idea man and producer, but he doesn’t know how to write dialogue that flows or direct actors. That’s why Empire is so much better in those areas than A New Hope, he let others come on board and more directly polish and mold what he started with. Even Jedi is better in those areas with someone else directing and George as a hands-on producer.
      I don’t completely hate the prequels, but some horrendous dialogue and some really bad acting moments (due to bad directing of badly written scenes) have permanently scarred them for me. I want to love them, but there is no getting over the terrible fireside love scene in ep2 or the “love has blinded you?” scene in ep3, or Padme’s death by “broken heart”, which permanently weakened her character as she gave up on living for her newborn children because her husband turned evil. I partially blame Kasdan for this as he turned down George’s offer to help with the ep1 screenplay and fed Geroge’s ego saying that he could do it all himself.

      • December 8, 2014 at 10:39 pm

        I completely agree with you.

      • December 9, 2014 at 5:47 am

        That’s exactly my view man. Wise words… Star wars 7 will slaughter the prequels!!!

  • December 8, 2014 at 3:51 pm

    In his house he has a cinema bigger than my house.

  • December 8, 2014 at 3:51 pm

    Anyone else not really care what George Lucas thinks? I lost all respect for him with this revisions and those god awful prequels.

    • December 8, 2014 at 7:38 pm

      I not agree with some prequel decisions (even THX 1138 revisions) but i will always have respect for him.
      I don’t think a lack of respect is necessary

    • December 8, 2014 at 9:19 pm

      God awful? Look at your name, what would have you produced out of the Star Wars universe?
      Lobot Strikes Back?

  • December 8, 2014 at 3:54 pm

    Honestly, he didn’t miss much, if you think about it. As much as I enjoyed watching the teaser many times over like everybody else myself, I hate to say it, but there is not one ounce of heart or soul in it, unlike the OT, which had tons of both in the teasers and trailers. It remains to be seen if there will be either in Episode 7, or if it will simply be just another dark movie for the sake of being a dark movie. I absolutely HATE the two animated series because they don’t have ANY heart or soul in them either. There is simply no reason for me to care… I hope Episode 7 will not make that same fatal mistake.

    • December 8, 2014 at 4:40 pm

      I would say there was little to no heart and soul in the original Star Wars (ep4) teaser trailers. I would also disagree that that is the case in this teaser. The falcon blasting into frame just after the line about the “light side” was enough heart and soul for me.

  • December 8, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    Yeah, I’m sure he knows better than anyone how deceptive trailers can be lol.

    But in all seriousness, I love this. I wish I had the self-control to not look at all the trailers and tid-bits coming out about this movie, but its SOOOO hard when your this excited about a film thats a whole year away. Props Mr. Lucas! Hope you are pleased with the legacy of your masterpiece.

  • December 8, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    But it WAS in the theater, George!

    • December 8, 2014 at 9:58 pm

      Not in the theater I was looking for.

  • December 8, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    “His isn’t the endorsement we’re looking for”


    Still, the guy deserves respect for dreaming up the galaxy to begin with.

  • December 8, 2014 at 4:22 pm

    Maybe George, the man who created thew most wonderful stories and characters ive ever seen, is loooong burnt out on continued fan backlash, which has been so over the top its ridiculous. im an old guy by these boards standards im sure lol, 43, and i grew up with the OT, and thoroughly enjoyed the PT while knowing it had its faults, and i miss the time when all lucas was considered was a brilliant creative genius. yeah he’s done some odd things and the PT didnt come out as wonderful as some of us hoped perhaps, but the internet hate thrown at him is so ludicrously over the top its ridiculous. he created my favorite universe, my favorite characters ever. hail the bearded one forever.

    • December 8, 2014 at 4:41 pm

      Yes!! They were his movies, his vision. He can do as he pleases.

    • December 8, 2014 at 7:27 pm

      Well said! George Lucas is an amazing talent, I grew up loving all the Star Wars films and of course Indiana Jones. He gave so many people a great gift. People should have a more respect for him, its really sad how nasty people can be. Cheers!

    • December 8, 2014 at 7:51 pm

      I would have to agree with you on the hate being over the top. I miss the 90s..

    • December 9, 2014 at 4:34 am

      Yes, i remember reading an interview shortly after Mickey rolled up with wheelbarrows full of cash, Lucas said he was tired of the backlash of SW. everyone criticizing doing this or not doing that…i think that was one of the things that got him thinking about selling out if i rem the article correctly…i like all of the SW universe, some parts better than others, but all of it in general. Also, it’s hard for me to say he “got it wrong”…how could he? He is the author, we are just along for the ride so wrong seems a bit harsh. i am thoroughly looking forward to seeing someone new at the helm, their interpretation, but Lucas should always be given respect. Besides, look how the new people are being treated…people already in an uproar over 88 seconds…I would say Lucas isn’t missing that at all…

  • December 8, 2014 at 4:41 pm

    I am no defender of Lucas for where he has taken the SW universe since 1997, but he is really in a no win situation these days when he is asked questions about the ST.

    Obviously, he is not involved with the project like it was earlier reported, so what is he going to say? If he says he likes the new movies, then people think he is phony and just saying anything. If he criticizes it, then he looks like he is angry and disrespectful to JJ Abrams.

    If I were him I would just say, “Listen, I don’t have anything to do with SW anymore as its in great hands at Disney. My opinion is really irrelevant at this point.”

  • December 8, 2014 at 4:51 pm

    Yeah it’s weird. Kinda like Dr Frankenstein’s monster turning on him, and him just wanting to distance himself from it. Kinda sad actually.

  • December 8, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    I’m done talking about the prequels, they were bad movies, or at least sub-par. But there are A LOT of movies out there that are BAD. The original trilogy was also bad, but in a charming, ingenious, good kind of bad.
    I think George is kind of done with it too.
    The question is: will Ep.VII be WATCHABLE (without ruining previous characters)?
    The point of star wars was always good old-fashioned alien-slicing planet-exploding action-family-drama, with swords.
    Why george tried to reinvent the proverbial wheel in PT is understandable but unfortunate. He could have kept it simple, or at least rounded off the plot subtleties that were alluded to.
    I like the Ep. 7 trailer, because it’s selling it as what it ought to be: USA in a shaken can ready to explode.

    The article below is a casual non-star wars-fan veiwer’s summation of 10 reasons star wars is dumb. I don’t agree completely with some of the reasons, but the LAST 2 reasons pertain to the topic at hand, and it’s actually a good read.

    • December 8, 2014 at 7:09 pm

      “I’m done talking about the prequels, they were bad movies, or at least sub-par. But there are A LOT of movies out there that are BAD. The original trilogy was also bad, but in a charming, ingenious, good kind of bad.”

      I really hope you are. I say the prequels are great movies. Of course you also think the OT was bad so I guess you don’t think many movies are even good.

      “lucas is past caring, he doesn’t give a toss, he made his billions”

      Which he is giving away. BTW he kind of knows what the basic story is so the surprise for him will be the actual final product and what they did with his story.

  • December 8, 2014 at 5:41 pm

    George Lucas is the father of Star Wars. Anyone comments insulting him will be deleted. We are all here because of him. Show some respect.

    • December 8, 2014 at 6:12 pm

      Why should someone who treats his employees poorly deserve our respect?

      • December 8, 2014 at 7:29 pm

        Well youngling, I’m not sure you are mature enough yet to judge who deserves respect.
        So just do as your told or go sit in the corner.

      • December 8, 2014 at 9:37 pm

        For one your way off.
        His employees were not only paid well but were given huge unheard of bonuses other companies would never give.
        He sent Joe Johnston the USC for free.
        There is footage of employees playing games in the parking lot and parting in the shop.
        I don’t think his employees were miss treated.
        Pixar was once Sprocket Works a sub division of ILM and had a party lounge built into the back of their work areas by the employees as a retreat in the work place and allowed by Lucas and later Steve Jobs.
        It was these practices that paved the way for Googles practices for their employees which is phenomenal!
        Phil Tippit was able to start his own shop and studio with what he earned.
        Working for George is a dream job.
        You make no sense.
        George is only guilty of pushing the envelope for better results, that is what being progressive means.
        Work for Bill Gates in the 90s I think that is who you are confuse with.

        • December 9, 2014 at 5:57 am

          Scott Ross talks about some unpleasant experiences with Lucas in this interview… Lucas fired a lot of folks for very trivial reasons. Considering Ross was able to tolerate Cameron who is the hardest director to work for… I’d consider his testimony reliable:

          I think one thing you should keep in mind is that anyone working for Lucas already has a lot of experience under their belt. I too would have given anything to work for the matte painters… but I think you miss the point. If there were workers who received bonuses they probably would have done just as well or better working for other outfits.

          He openly admitted in this interview that they got by with keeping production costs down by cutting back on salaries for CGI artists:

          & then there is the whole Prowse thing… among many others.

    • December 8, 2014 at 11:55 pm

      I totally agree with you Viral H. People should have more respect for the father of Star Wars and I was a child when I first seen the OT, but an adult when I seen the PT. You know what? I walked out of the theater in 1999 after the end of TPM saying “That was AMAZING!” and I will always love all 6 films equally.

      • December 9, 2014 at 1:09 am

    • December 9, 2014 at 3:39 am

      Dude who said “I’m done talking about (hating on) the PT” here,

      George Lucas is indeed the father of star wars, we have him to thank for that, but he does have his faults, and we can’t blame him for that. My point about the star wars movies is that they aren’t good in the OSCARs sense of the word, but they are incredibly entertaining and most valuable and representative of a generation. They aren’t good PER-SE, but this shouldn’t be construed as an insult.
      Star Wars OT was awesome BECAUSE it was a little less than intelligent. Similar to the cartoon Adventure Time where the Hero outright says “I’m all ABOUT stupid!!!” as a sort of war-cry.
      Guess everyone else views Star Wars differently…

    • December 9, 2014 at 3:44 am

      Your call if you wanna ban me though, it’s your website. Totally agree with cutting down on Lucas-hate.

  • December 8, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    Look all I’ll say is he made the best decision ever when he sold it. He probably should have done it before the prequels. Because now he’s given it to the people.

    Many directors and writers will contribute to all things Star Wars. Some will be good. Some may be bad. Most importantly, some may be amazing!

    Also since so many are on the way now and it’s going to be so many different people’s take on the lore… we will all be more forgiving when one stumbles.

  • December 8, 2014 at 6:20 pm

    lucas is past caring, he doesn’t give a toss, he made his billions

  • December 8, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    He doesn’t like spoilers- simple as that.

  • December 8, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    Lucas is much more involved in the Star Wars films than Disney or Lucasfilm lets on. FYI, all the scripts and designs are sent to him for his input. If you believe Disney invested billions of dollars to have George walk away you are a fool. The company has tremendous respect for the creator of Darth Vader and Indiana Jones. For the next several years he will keep his distance publicly, but behind the scenes his will remain the guiding hand behind the overall saga. Lucas is simply staying under the radar now, out of sight of the many “fans” whose childhoods he supposedly ruined with the prequels. And who can blame him? The prequel trilogy may have its faults, but it was an ambitious attempt to address politics, war, and the manipulating of public opinion in a popular science fantasy film. All three films were highly profitable and, like the films that came before them, led to tremendous advances in film technology. None of that matters, though, because a bunch of moronic lemmings on the internet have somehow concluded that Lucas is evil incarnate.

    • December 9, 2014 at 5:34 pm

      This is spot on. I don’t buy for a second he is merely a “creative consultant”. His public involvement in the new films has been carefully orchestrated as distant, and although I do believe she is semi-retired, Kathleen Kennedy and JJ Abrams are running major story points and ideas past him. As it should be.

  • December 8, 2014 at 7:50 pm

    Good. Go enjoy being a billionaire and stay out of it. We don’t want your input, and JJ doesn’t need it.

  • December 8, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    Not the biggest fan does care any more for star wars than George Lucas does himself, believe me. He made such a great movie anf ultimately this is doom. Because i believe a lifetime long he was forced to create something even bigger, hes gonna think about it for every minute of his life. This is such a hard weight to cary that you lose the ability to get a clear view on things. He just did not want any help and kept thinking “im gonna do thi, yes this is right, they gonna love this”.
    The man sold his brainchild and believe that no person cared more for star wars than himself. He partially sold his soul and now he is tryin to distance himself, out of sadbes probably. Because he gained that larger than life responsibily and failed. Because no man can whitstand this pressure. Creativity and awesome things are unique and should be seen as such. You cant be awesome your whole life, only fail from the top. Look at Michael Jackson, any other larger than life person. Sorry for typos as always

    • December 9, 2014 at 2:29 am

      Thank you for feeling and understanding what you just said. Sincerely.

  • December 8, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    It’s got to be a bit of an odd time for Lucas. He’s always struck me as something of a control freak (understandably so) and now he’s suddenly in the position of having the world that he created and built upon for decades in the hands of somebody else.

    That can’t be an easy thing to do, and I can see why he might make an effort (at least for the time being) to pay as little attention to the TFA production as possible.

  • December 8, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    Lucas: ‘ I can’t afford internet’

  • December 8, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    Probably because Lucas is more of a Trekker.

  • December 8, 2014 at 9:39 pm

    I think George would probably prefer the Force Awakens George Lucas Special Edition edit instead.

  • December 8, 2014 at 10:28 pm

    “But when we asked Lucas if he was curious to see what Abrams has done with the new “Star Wars,” Lucas said, “Not really.””


  • December 8, 2014 at 10:55 pm

    I’m, Curious if they just cut George out of the loop. Maybe that created some bitterness with the new stuff.When he sold it was told we would like you around to help consult with the new movies…then nobody called to ask him anything. Oh and by the way were throwing out all your cannon EU you and your group worked so hard to maintain..

    • December 9, 2014 at 12:03 am

      From what I read, he was closer to Michael Arndts vision of Episode 7 where the Big 3 play very minor roles. Once Disney and Arndt parted ways I wonder if that is when they stop consulting with Lucas.

    • December 9, 2014 at 5:31 am

      I agree. If those quotes are true, it sounds bitter. It’s like when a person breakups w/someone. They say shit like, “I don’t know what he/she is doin,” or “no, I have no interest what’s goin on with he/she.” But really, it’s bs.

      He’s not interested in seeing how things are with the franchise he’s owned forever, which changed filmmaking forever, and affected people around the world.

      Him not actually being contacted for creative consultant advice may have pissed him off. So now, he might be a little hot. “Nah, fuck it man whatever, fuck you guys. I don’t care about it. No, I don’t give a shit if they kill Han. Whatever dude. I hope they kill off Leia and Luke too. I haven’t seen shit, I’m not really interested to be honest with you. It’s not playing in any theaters. I don’t know, whatever dude. I don’t give a crap. I only watch trailers in theaters. I don’t like using my own theater. Just fuck it man, whatever”

  • December 8, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    The only problem I have with George is his “constant” tampering with the OT over the years. When I originally heard about the special editions back in 97 I thought it would be mainly about cleaning the prints and removing matte lines. But when I saw A New Hope I hated all the new digital creatures and that first digital Jabba. Yuck. Empire I enjoyed. Return of the Jedi had that horrible Jabba musical number. Since then with the DVD releases it has been even more and more changes. New CG Jabba, Hayden Christensen spirit. I bought the 2011 Blu-ray box set but I can’t stand watching any of them anymore. I’m giving them away to a gift charity this Xmas. From now on Star Wars is only the Despecialized trilogy by Harmy. I do have hopes for the new films.

    It’s weird all these people who say “the ot weren’t thst great” why are you here? Just odd

  • December 9, 2014 at 1:46 am

    The prequel films were not as good as their story but are still a top production of an interesting tale to watch.

    An incomplete success of pre-empire trilogy Star Wars is a better nearly than anything else.

    they gonna do great theater screen opening for George Lucas

  • December 9, 2014 at 4:49 am

    i think i get what people are saying about the story being “bigger” than the movies themselves…i read the novelizations of the movies, Jedi was the first movie i actually watched of the original 3…the movies for me were the “first step” into a larger universe, the early Han Solo & Lando novels and the comics, and of course the toys…THEY carried me away into that galaxy far, far away even more so than the movies. As far as people saying the prequels and now these sequels will “ruin” the original OT…i don’t understand…how? i LOVED Mortal Kombat..the 2nd one, not so much…but in NO way did it ruin the first for me…how could it? I just don’t re-watch the 2nd part.

      The teaser spoilers were wrong anyway.

  • December 9, 2014 at 6:42 am

    I appreciate those who stuck up for me. I probably should have used a different choice of words, however anyone who thinks George hasn’t been rude to his own fan base or others who’ve worked for him (examples cited above) is in denial.

    What I think more people should appreciate is that Star Wars was a group effort… that’s what made it great… & that’s what will make the new films great. There were so many people who put their own personality into SW, having removed any one of them would have drastically altered the film for the worse. What a lot of folks don’t realize is Lucas’s ex wife helped him work on the stories… I actually think a lot of what made the OT story so compelling was her input & editing… along with that of many others (like Kasdan). If Williams hadn’t have scored… if Ralph hadn’t done the concepts… if Johnston or others hadn’t thought outside the box to make unique ship concepts that stood the test of time… it wouldn’t have become such a classic franchise to begin with. I recognize it was Lucas’s vision… but not solely his own.

  • December 9, 2014 at 7:08 am

    In my opinion, Lucas ruined Star Wars all together when he made Anakin the chosen one after all that evil he did, killing kids, killing Jedi, etc. It didnt make any sense at all. Thats like calling Hitler himself the chosen one of World War 2. Let him kill alot of people out of anger, then he dies ending the war and now hes redeamed..lmfao…. The whole saga is about the conflicts between the Jedi and Sith. 2 trilogies made about the Jedi and Sith, and now this last trilogy wont have sith ? just inquisitors ? and a so called chosen one of light killing Jedi cause why ? peeps say Jedi was corrupt ? what waz corrupt about them ? they didnt interfere with the Senate, they didnt slam Communisim down anyones throats. It was a persons choice if they wanted to be a Jedi, they didnt force anyone to do anything…. forget CGI and Jar Jar, making Anakin the chosen one waz the dumbest thing i ever seen in my life… If thats Lucas only vision with that, then to me , hes no different than the ones who murder others for fun or hate…. Plus the Jedi prophecy he made up didnt even fit with Anakin. Was Anakin born in a time of great despair ? No. The Empire and Sidious wasnt even in power yet. Was Luke ? No. Only ther Senate was taking over, but not the Galaxy. hell, the Death Star hadnt even been built yet. Stupid story all together…. and now the last trilogy will only focus on Inquisitors ? sorry but too boring….

    • December 9, 2014 at 6:20 pm

      The Jedi aren’t communist, their Zen-Buddhist.
      Actually the Federation bears WAY more similarity to currently existing “communist” governments.
      The Empire is Fascist.
      Basically star-wars PT is Germany vs Russia in WWII all over again, but with the Germans winning the war.

      Agree about anakin though, but I don’t think Anakin can ever be truly redeemed, justice/karma/destiny-wise, he can be a ghost, But he’s still a convicted world-destroyer.
      Kinda’ like how you can be a convicted murderer but still get religion and repent your sins.
      Darth Vader will never be “Even-Steven” (no matter what anyone else says), but he CAN better himself and do service in his own ghostly ways, so Good On Him

  • December 9, 2014 at 10:08 am

    Heres my arguement…..

    1. 1) The Force has been unbalanced for however long the Sith have existed, over 1000 years at least.

    2) If another Jedi were to fall to the Dark Side, the Force would again be unbalanced.

    3) Are the Jedi in TPM aware that the Force is unbalanced? If yes then that would be a clear signal to them that the Sith are still around as they are the only thing that can unbalance the Force.
    Connected to this, if the jedi think, “Kill all Sith= Balance, any Sith alive=Force unbalanced.” Then since they think that all the Sith were wiped out 1000 years ago, they would have thought that the prophecy was fullfilled then.

    4) Added to no 3. If the prophecy was made over 1000 years ago then, since the Jedi thought that the sith were all killed they would have needed another chosen one around back then. If they didn’t, then they would have thought that the stih were all killed.
    If they didn’t have a chosen one and think the sith were all killed then you don’t need a chosen one to kill the sith.
    If the prophecy is younger than 1000 years then that would have been a signal to the Jedi that the Sith are still around.
    Otherwise the prophecy is kind of redundant.

    5) The Force has a light side and a dark side and that doesn’t change if all jedi or all sith are killed.
    But it is kind of odd, any number of Force users can use the light side but if any of them use the dark side then that throws the force out of balance. So the dark side can exist but it can’t ever be used. Even odder, the Jedi use only one side of the Force but the Sith use all of it.
    One of these unbalance the Force but not the other.

    And before someone brings up EU and what Plaegiuos or whoever did, that isn’t in the films. The films do present a fairly simple logic, there can’t be any Sith alive or else the Force becomes unbalanced and Anakins job is to kill them all. A kind of Force Terminator.
    To me, if the Force want the Sith dead then why doesn’t it do it itself? It also makes Anakins fate kind of simple, he exists to kill people, nothing more.

    Personally I think that a concept like Balance could have been made more interesting if it had meant a change in how the Force is viewed.
    That the old Jedi and Sith are both too dogmatic in their viewpoints, one is blinded by their own brilliance, the other drowned in their own darkness. That a new approach was needed. And ironically, that new approach came from Luke.
    Or they could have used the old unused prophecy from the OT, “In the time of the greatest Darkness, there shall come a Savior and he shall be the Son of the Suns.”

    So glad Lucas not doing any more of these.

    • December 9, 2014 at 6:27 pm

      The light side is using the Force respectfully, some might say “properly”

      The Dark Side abuses the force to they’re own purposes, causing imbalance, but getting more power, some might say using it “properly”.

      This isn’t Apples and Oranges here, it’s about Peace -vs- Assholery, or dare I say it, Right and Wrong.

  • December 9, 2014 at 1:54 pm

    Leave the man alone. It’s his universe. He made a few mistakes, but it is an artist and has the right to do so. Without it, there would not be Star Wars. The guy is showing its age a little screwed up his old age, but, well yes it is. And now we all hate it.

  • December 9, 2014 at 2:06 pm

    I dont hate the man at all. to me hes the greatest fantasy creator of all time. Its just his idealogy of what the chosen one is. It just didnt make any sense. Now the rumor is , iz that Adam Driver and Andy serkis are Sith lords and Gwendoline Christie is an Inquisitor. Now if thats true, with the Sith, then how the heck is Anakin the chosen one ? Are we all saying just ignore the prequels ? Cause when the last trilogy is complete, and when we see the Star Wars saga as a whole ( 9 eps ) , it wont make any sense at all about the Jedi prophecy. To me, the only way to fix the mess, iz to have 3 prophecies happen before the rise of the chosen one. First would be the false prophet ( Anakin ), second the son of redemption ( Luke ), third a Sith ( between part 6 and 7 ) would take the galaxy into a time of great despair ( maybe 10 yrs after ep 6 … then, 4th would be the chosen ones adventures ( starting in ep 7 ) leading up to the big finale when the man/woman destrys the Sith once and for all….. any other way, its totally ruined….

  • December 9, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    I will never forgive Lucas for getting rid of Yub Nub song.

    I believe that like Anaikin Skywalker, Mr Lucas drifted to the “Dark Side” in the 90’s when he made all those changes. I believe that Lucas will come back to the light one day. There is good in him. I think he feels the conflict within him.

    Viral Hide December 08, 2014 at 17:41 PM
    George Lucas is the father of Star Wars. Anyone comments insulting him will be deleted. We are all here because of him. Show some respect.

    WOW, you decide when george would feel insulted (without knowing him) and have decided to delete comments you don’t agree with?

    That’s awesome.

    What’s the harm in letting people say what they want? You need to grow some thicker skin sweet heart. Especially since your name isn’t george Lucas

    • December 9, 2014 at 6:37 pm

      Viral’s trying to keep his website low on excessive hate, constructive criticism is worth defending, calling Lucas out on making a mistake is valuable.
      Burning Lucas’ proverbial house down with shaky-to-nonexistent reasoning adds very little to the conversation and just plain isn’t constructive.
      I suspect this is what Viral Hide is picking up on…

    Don’t even waste your time man. Everyone here knows and understands that this is a “toe-the-line” site and forum. Dissention isn’t tolerated very well. Calling out a Mod only enrages their sense of pride and egos and it won’t be tolerated haha. I’m only here for the news, pics and so-called leaks…not so much for the hyper-fan speculations and nerd-raging lol.

    Hopefully you catch this message before it’s stricken from the record haha. Sadly, they do that type of lame shit around here :/

  • December 9, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    I think the comments here are quite respectful, not like some other sites where it’s open season on old George. I’ll always be a Star Wars fan, but not a special edition fan. If blu-rays come out in the future with proper color timing and proper restoration of matte lines, etc., I’ll buy them instantly. In the end I can’t forgive the decision of including Hayden Christensen as Anakin’s spirit in ROTJ’s blu-ray. Here’s Luke who has taken this journey from Tatooine, Obi Wan’s death, Yoda’s death and the death of his father. And in the final scene we see Yoda and Ben’s spirits and the redemption of Luke’s father, and we see in Luke’s face the loss and joy of seeing these spirits. But then George had to add Hayden Christensen instead of Sebastian Shaw and completely ruin this scene. Luke still has the same reaction, but don’t you think anyone seeing a young Anakin would emote some different kind of reaction; like is this my father’s spirit standing next to old Yoda and Ben? Thank you to Harmy for my Despecialized original trilogy editions.

    Star Wars is in perfect hands. George Lucas is 100% confident in them so he does not need to think about it and is fully retired and focuses on the new things in his life and will see The Force Awakens once it is released.
