Lucas might have virtually started a new religion with the Star Wars movies, but he milked them for every merchandising dollar he could for 35 years, then sold the rights to Disney for a staggering $4bn . How does he expect Disney to recoup that money? By making low-budget Star Wars art movies? To then turn around and suggest that, “I couldn’t even get Red Tails into theatres and I’m George Lucas” is even more hypocritical. As if the Lucas name alone should suffice, rather than the quality of the movie, which, in this case, was not high. And yes, Spielberg, you gave us Lincoln, Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan and many more decent movies.
