George Lucas just announced he will NEVER make another Star Wars movie. More surprising was he admitted point blank that the reason he won't make another movie is because of the critics who bash him for constantly altering his original films and for failing to re-release the originals in unaltered high-definition.

The free-spirit in me feels like his creation, his choice to do whatever he wants with it. But a more conservative part of me feels like he should appreciate and even be grateful for the fact that his original films are so popular that they are like pieces of Americana, and that he should not tamper with them out of respect for the massive cult following he created and who helped propel the series to the ridiculous level of success it's at now.

It's one thing to create totally new prequels using the latest technology that perhaps doesnt suit everyone's tastes. But it's another thing to flatly refuse to make more movies simply out of spite. Is George really so vain and shallow as this latest announcement makes him appear

George Lucas is the greatest salesman on the planet. The fact that he can sell the same **** from 1977 like 25 times in various mediums and collector's editions and add in some special effects, special features, and high definition FOR OVER 35 YEARS is impressive.

I for one wouldn't mind seeing movies on the expanded universe, with little to do with the cannon. There's so much expanded universe stuff out there. That said, why do they have to be made by George Lucas? Couldn't he sell the rights to someone else so that he doesn't have to worry about the criticism?

Heck, imagine if Blur Studios made a full length version of the trailers? 0_o

This is true, but anyway its his franchise he created it. At the start all George had was a script and a dream, he worked to where he is now so yes he has the right to do what he wants. If all the haters can go out, make a movie that changes an entire generation and brings forth new ideas from people then makes billions of dollars and all you have to go by is a script, some crew, sets and models that break down I will be impressed.

Lucas may never make another Star Wars film (thankfully).



But he will hold onto the Star Was ip and allow someone else to create movies with it, taking a sizable cut no doubt.



It's been rumored for years he was going to hand off the Star Wars ip to Spielberg and Spielberg could make movies.

I should make a meme for Star Wars fans. Would go as follows:

"Complains doggedly for years about prequels

*picture of Jar Jar*

gets mad when Lucas says he won't make more movies"
