Respectful piece on Lucas' latest projects, including the animated and live actions series, Indy, and a new film, Red Tails.

On the SW EU:

Quote:
“I am the father of our Star Wars movie world - the filmed entertainment, the features and now the animated film and television series,” he says. “And I’m going to do a live-action television series. Those are all things I am very involved in: I set them up and I train the people and I go through them all. I’m the father; that’s my work. Then we have the licensing group, which does the games, toys and books, and all that other stuff. I call that the son - and the son does pretty much what he wants.” He laughs. “Once in a while, they ask a question like ‘Can we kill off Yoda?’, things like that, but it’s very loose.

“Then we have the third group, the holy ghost, which is the bloggers and fans. They have created their own world. I worry about the father’s world. The son and holy ghost can go their own way.”

For awhile now I've felt George doesn't care much about the EU and SW fans, but it doesn't bother me. He's not "God" to me; Star Wars is much more than his story, although no one can say his stories weren't amazing. Mr. Lucas is a great man for starting SW, but his stories are now a strong foundation on which many amazing stories were and are being built.

So if the novels are his children, I'm guessing that would make my fan-fic stories his illegitimate step kids. Poor neglected babies Sad
