6 Times When George Lucas Acted Bizarre

6 Times When George Lucas Acted Bizarre

There’s no denying the fact that George Lucas is a genius. Not only did he make the most amazing film franchise in history, but also had the prescience to see that merchandising was the key to amassing money. The man merits a huge amount of respect since he constructed a media empire, pushed VFX further than anybody before him, and was a truly strong movie producer. However, although he was great, he was bizarre too. Here’s how…

1. He stated the best Star Wars motion picture is really the most awful one

It might not be your most loved Star Wars motion picture, but The Empire Strikes Back is loved by most fans and critics. Right from its soundtrack to its dark end, everything about the film is rather iconic.
However, Lucas doesn’t agree. At the Publicist Guild Awards in 2007, he was giving an award to one of his companions when he figured out how to sneak in a sharp underhanded compliment to the movie. He said;
“George Lucas, giving the award to Sid Ganis, who was the in-house publicist on Star Wars: Episode Five – The Empire Strikes Back, said, ‘Sid is the reason why The Empire Strikes Back is always written about as the best of the films, when it actually was the worst one.'”




 

2. He’s very bitter about The Force Awakens

Lucas seemed to be very bitter before as the release of Episode VII drew nearer. Part of it appears to have originated from when Lucas gave over his drafts of the Prequel Trilogy to Disney, which the franchise’s new guardians. Obviously, Disney dismissed his take on the Prequels.The Force Awakens obviously did amazing business. With every record it broke, another dash of salt was poured on Lucas’ $4 billion injury. He said in an interview;
“All those Star Wars films … I loved them, I created them, I’m very intimately involved in them, and I sold them to the white slavers that take these things and uh, and … [laughs]”
It’s a despicable thing to state and Lucas actually apologized after this bit spread.
