George Lucas Criticizes Latest ‘Star Wars’ Installment

George Lucas has criticized the latest installment of “Star Wars,” the series he created, in an interview with Charlie Rose, describing the film as too “retro” for his taste and jokingly comparing the Walt Disney Company, which bought the rights to the franchise in 2012, to “white slavers” who had bought his children.Mr. Lucas appeared particularly unhappy with the direction the “Star Wars” franchise has taken since he sold the rights to it, along with Lucasfilm, his company, to Disney for $4 billion.He compared the sale to a breakup and a divorce.“These are my kids.All the Star Wars films,” he said.“I love them, I created them, I’m very intimately involved in them.”“They wanted to do a retro movie,” he said.“I don’t like that.Every movie, I worked very hard to make them different, make them completely different with different planets, different spaceships, to make it new.”
