    You didn't know who Kasdan is, so, that doesn't say anything.

    I know it is all about virtual points, badges and trophies or whatever, but if you can answer your question by clicking on a tweet or google or just plain reading, try that. Please.

    I would but I'm in Sydney with a bad signal for wifi that shuts down every couple minutes and unless I use my data, it's sort of hard right now...I believe I didn't know who Kasdan was might have been a misunderstanding (forget because it's a long time ago) I will do it in the future, but I was just asking because I can't exactly do anything major as of now

    So no credit should be given to people like John Williams, Ralph McQuarrie, Ben Burtt, Dennis Muren, Rick Baker, Lawrence Kasdan, Irvin Kershner, the cast, etc.?
    Film making is a collaborate effort, not the work of one man.

    It's collaborative until you see The PT :p but really though, those people, like @Make It Up Man said, were all literally employees...I mean, yes, they are now legends and helped to build industry standards and SW wouldn't be what it is from a visual/auditory standpoint if it weren't for those guys.

    The truth is hard to understand when it comes to Star Wars.

    Actually, it really is. No one stood up to Lucas. You can actually see it in the behind the scenes features (my favorite is when you see people watching The Phantom Menace for the first time. You can see their reactions in their eyes). Gark Kurtz (who produced A New Hope and Empire) said that people were afraid to question any of the decisions Lucas made. And here's an actual quote from Anthony Daniels: "George has changed a lot over the years, but I think he finds it slightly hard to collaborate. He made decisions that I believe might have been better discussed with other people."
    George Lucas had far more control over the prequels than he did on the originals.

    I think he had more control because his producers on The OT (Gary Kurtz being one of them) all pretty much declined to come on board the prequels and he found Rick McCallum who was his main Yes Man and you can see it in the way he talks to George in the behind the scenes features and the way Rick talks about him is as if he is in love with Lucas...I think I saw something about TPM where Steven Spielberg is visiting George at a location during the sunset the day before they started shooting and George shows Spielberg the new battle droids and Steven is like, "...wtf is this" but still liked it.

    Anybody wonder or can lead me to something. The more I watch and "wonder" about SW and how George Lucas creation came to fold. I like it all. no matter how the PT is, the OT will hands down is the best and the ST is making the story more evolved. but the scene with Yoda(this is prolly where every speculation comes from) "There is another" line. Can it be that he foreseen certain events in the force that Rey could be what GL wanted to continue. It may not be Rey but could just come from GL saying "the story of SW continues on and there is another means its not over. I mean the titles of the episodes of course doesnt give us a full description, ANH(just saying that there could be Hope in someone followed the path. IDK, just finished ESB so there is alot of questions I have.

    Appropriate if it happened, at least his work can be admired by him for the rest of his days.

    Fun fact: even though he sold LFL to Disney, he still owns the property and the buildings so the parent company has to keep paying him to house his company there...what would be the odds that Disney ends up paying for the entire museum with it being located at Skywalker Ranch
    ?

    I love both the Original and Prequel trilogies. A great story is told in those six films. Plus George is a good guy. Even if you don't like the Prequels, lets not talk ill about the man. He doesn't strike me as one who just wanted money. He wanted to tell a story, and surrounded himself with those he thought would be able to help him get his vision of the story out there. He's a good guy. He has feelings. Money can't cover up feelings you have when you constantly hear how awful a person you are for making three films that didn't turn out as great as a certain percentage of the population hoped they would. Hence that was probably a big reason of him selling Lucasfilm to Disney. Other reasons would be there too, but outspoken fans who hate the Prequels was probably a big factor in that discussion.

    True. The haters are reasons many consider the Star Wars fanbase one of the worse fanbases around. It's one thing to not like something, in this case the prequel trilogy, but it's completely different when you hear how much people hate those films. And then if you try to say why you like them, you're jumped upon and attacked for not being a real fan and are an idiot for liking them, while they are the true fans, as to them all real fans hate anything not resembling the Original Trilogy.

    no person deserves to be talked ill about or even hated because of his art.

    I wonder if Disney has the right to change the PT and OT or are they carved in stone forever?!
