NY Times. Interview

Lots of good stuff here...

-FU Fanboys
-He came up with nuking the fridge
-studios said FU to Red Tails

Yeah that's ok George, you don't need to make Indy 5, that's quite alright.

Red Tails looks good though, my hopes are up for this one, can't be as bad as the prequels.  I love anything WWII.

What a tool.

This quote will forever be ingrained in my memory:

“Why would I make any more,” Lucas says of the “Star Wars” movies, “when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?”

The guy just does not get it. People don't care about whether you make MORE, they just want you to stop screwing with the ones that were already released.

This whole excuse of tinkering as a way of asserting final editorial control is ridiculous. I'm fairly certain he had final say over EVERYTHING in the Prequels but that doesn't stop him from tweaking those over and over again.

He seems pretty interested in that live action show. Not.

It's right up there with Shatner telling trekies to "Get a life!".

His PR department is probably saying "Oh crap!".

After reading Rinzler's "The Making of Star Wars" I have a better understanding of George and why he's not satisfied with his vision. Not having the faith of the studios, and the lack of a budget to do as he'd like... he's just a perfectionist. And to top it off, Fox was struggling and on the verge of collapse until George saved their asses (only with the biggest box-office smash of its time), only to have Fox turn around and fine him for going over budget and then want to come back to the negotiating table to take away sequel and merchandising rights. I don't blame George's attitude towards the studios at all. And as a fan, I don't care about the changes because I'm happy with them as they are. I think they are perfect as they are, mistakes and all. A perfectionist as Lucas is wants to see the best final product. Kudos to him.
