Lucas on the Star Wars divorce

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 25, 2015

George Lucas says he had nothing to do with The Force Awakens and furthermore that the movie was not done the way he would have done it.

“The issue was ultimately, they looked at the stories and they said, ‘We want to make something for the fans,’” Lucas said. “People don’t actually realize it’s actually a soap opera and it’s all about family problems — it’s not about spaceships. So they decided they didn’t want to use those stories, they decided they were going to do their own thing so I decided, ‘fine…. I’ll go my way and I let them go their way.’”

Soooooooooooooooo, if Star Wars is a family story, why did you make it about spaceships and special effects?
