George Lucas and Star Wars have broken up. This is a bummer, but I think Lucas’ perspective is the right one to have. Here it it in his own words:
George Lucas is right to move on. I think they’re messing up losing Lucas–he’s a genius who takes things into new directions. I think Star Wars can subsist for a decade without Lucas just based on the great things he’s left behind, so I’m not worried. But it does suck.
