"The issue was ultimately, they looked at the stories and they said, ‘We want to make something for the fans,’" Lucas said. "People don’t actually realize it’s actually a soap opera and it’s all about family problems – it’s not about spaceships. So they decided they didn’t want to use those stories, they decided they were going to do their own thing so I decided, ‘fine…. I’ll go my way and I let them go their way.’"
This marks the first time Lucas is not intimately involved, which Lucas compared to a breakup.
"When you break up with somebody, the first rule is no phone calls. The second rule, you don’t go over to their house and drive by to see what they’re doing," he said laughing. "The third one is you don’t show up at their coffee shop and say you are going to burn it… You just say ‘Nope, gone, history, I’m moving forward.’"
Before we feel bad for George Lucas, how many billions of dollars did he get from Disney? So Lucas gets $4.06 billion to sell Lucasfilm and now is sad they didn’t want his ideas. Well, I hope the $4 billion is enough to console them.
