Love him or hate him, George Lucas created this Star Wars thing that most of us still do love. While most of us can agree on the original trilogy, the prequel and sequel trilogies are both met with mixed reviews. Fans had lots of bad things to say about Lucas after the prequel trilogy, though the films seem to be more loved today than they ever have been.
The initial reaction to the prequels hit Lucas pretty hard. Friend to Lucas and President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, says she doesn’t think Lucas will ever work on Star Wars again. You can see what she had to say while speaking with Rolling Stone below.
“I doubt it. But listen, I think that would be fantastic, if he would be interested in doing that again. But I doubt it. He’s loving doing his museum [Los Angeles’ the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art] right now. That’s a huge project, which is going to be absolutely fantastic. It’s a narrative museum, so it really keeps him engaged in storytelling. I think he’s loving that and he’s loving his little girl [six-year-old daughter Everest]. So he’s pretty fulfilled.”
From what Kennedy had to say above, it seems all Lucas would have to do is ask, and Disney would oblige. I assume the fanbase would be split on this idea, as they are on other issues concerning the franchise. As for me, I do hope George Lucas will one day return to a galaxy far, far away. And if he chose to do so, I hope he would knock it out of the park.
