George Lucas Hasn't Spoken to JJ Abrams About "Star Wars: Episode VII"

Posted: June 19th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
George Lucas HasnSubmit Comment
When Disney acquired Lucasfilm and the "Star Wars" franchise, it was announced that George Lucas helped come up with the stories for a new trilogy and will be a consultant throughout development.

Since then, Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) has been hired to write the script for "Star Wars: Episode VII" and JJ Abrams (Star Trek) was brought on to direct. But in a new interview with Access Hollywood, Lucas revealed that he has yet to have one conversation with Abrams.

"I have not spoken to JJ. He's been busy with Star Trek, and Iím sure that he'll let me know when he's got some questions," he said. "So, you know, that's all going well. [Producer] Kathy [Kennedy] tells me it's working out great."

"Star Wars: Episode VII" is set to begin shooting in the UK next year and will then hit theaters in 2015.

lol it would be hilarious if the movie comes out and JJ still never talked to George Lucas at all.

Lucas already talked to Abrams and but couldnt tell
due to the flare from the lenses of J.Js glasses

Why would he? Lucas sold Star Wars. He has nothing more to do with the franchise -- with future installments. He WANTS nothing more to do with it. Doesn't matter; angry, sexless fanboys will still bitch at the guy whenever his name pops up in an article for whatever reason.

George shouldn't get involved...period. He already laid the ground work. He should just lay back, count his money, and just wait eagerly as to what they'll come up with next as a fan like the rest of us. And I think he can relax, nothing will ever be as good as the original...

I mean, he already built the mansion, a pool, with a great foundation. He tried to add a *ahem* second story but came out pretty tacky. Lucas should just sit back back and wait how the new pool house comes out...it really doesn't serve that much of a purpose but will only beautify whats already built....hopefully.

BTW, everyone is welcomed to roll their eyes on the construction analogy...LOL.

@CelluloidMan
In his defense, Lucas does a good job when he helps write the story. He's just not very good at conveying those ideas which is where Abrams would come into it although Abrams tends to write or co-write any of the stories to any films he does.

One good aspect is JJ's writing hack lackeys Orci, Kurtzman, and Lindelof are not writing this and it's the Toy Story 3 guy.

Toy Story 3 was a good movie so we'll see. It can't be any worse than the prequels.

JJ : George,what do you think about Lens Flare?

George : ho ho ho ho...You may have been a good director, but now you're Lens Flare fodder.

Lucas retired, sold off the ship named Star Wars lock stock and barrel. Why the f*ck would he care anymore? He did his six movies, milked the entire thing into what looked like death, and now has a heap of cash. Disney already has ideas where they want to go, and Lucas has none, so why would he offer anything even if he had anything to offer?

Lucas as many other directors did well as long as they were young and hungry for success,as soon as the big cash started to come they lost their hunger along with their mojo so in a way the first Star wars was the rise and fall of George Lucas.
