    Nothing. George has been pretty clear he hates Star Wars now, but then I think he never really liked what everyone else liked about Star Wars in the first place so...

    I never understood this sentiment.

    Star Wars is his baby. If he doesn't like what they did with it, they are the ones who didn't get it.

    Oh I see you changed your post lol

    Jesus... does this man ever wear anything else? Is this his only shirt? We should start a fund raiser to get George a new shirt.

    So you think he had better things to do than attend a high profile event of a movie that's part of a highly successful franchise that he created? And nothing to do with being embittered over the direction Kathleen Kennedy has taken things?

    I have no idea what his family and business obligations are. He was at the TFA premiere, but not the Rogue One premiere (though he spoke with Gareth). He played a key part of Celebration this year. These red carpet events are not important to everyone, and I don't make a whole lot out of his decision not to attend.

    I'm sure Lucas spoke with Rian, too, and might of even watched a private screening of the movie. I take Lucas curious absence from the proceedings as a sign that he's completely disillusioned with the new movies. But I guess we will never really know for certain. Either way, it's sad, regardless of the circumstances, that he wasn't there.

    He was clearly disillusioned with TFA, but seemed to like Rogue One. I've often wondered what he'll think of this next chapter.... or what any of us will think of it, for that matter. But I'm not going to read into things that I just simply don't have the information to be able to judge. He couldn't make it tonight... for whatever reason. That's good enough for me.

    No. Star Wars would be crap if not for the talented people Lucas surrounded himself with that helped him refine his vision into something so enjoyable. I credit people like Lawrence Kasdan, Irvin Kershner, Brian Depalma, Marcia Lucas, Ben Burtt, Frank Oz, and John Williams for Star Wars success. Without them the original movies would have been no better than TPM.

    Who cares what George Lucas thinks of these new movies? The man hasn't had a decent idea since the 1980s. Stay away, George. Build your museum, hang out at the mall food court, make your experimental home movies that you show to no one. Thanks eternally for the OT. But Star Wars requires you no more.

    Not yet, they're about half way through Act III now, so maybe 25 minutes from now.

    I have no disrespect for GL's creative mind. I have disrespect for the cult that has been built around him. I have disrespect for the notion that credit is due solely to him for how great Star Wars is. I have disrespect for the notion that his word is the first, and final on the quality of anything within the universe. The man isn't a god. He's a man. He's a film creator, and like any film creator he had to be surrounded by countless people that helped him mold his creation into greatness. Unfortunately, he's also a man who later let his ego drive those people away, and made him believe that he needed no help in molding his creation any longer.

    It's well worth it to read at least a few of the latest posts before posting yourself. We're moving on from this.

    The disrespect George Lucas have for the Star Wars fans is inexcusable.

    You did not mention Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz who, without getting any credit, co-wrote ANH with Lucas.

    TOPIC: When is it over?

    The movie should be about over, the credits should be rolling any second now.
