Quote of the Day, We Would Have Seen Jar-Jar As A Saviour edition.

This quote is accurate (go to the link for context).

George Lucas’ final trilogy plans are so dumb, fans would have begged for the return of Jar Jar

I understand that emotions are high over Star Wars, but: it could have been worse, my droogies.  Merciful God in heaven, it could have so very much worse. Always remember that George Lucas hates Star Wars for what it did to him, and hates us for making it impossible for him to seek closure. If he had been given the chance, Lucas absolutely would have giggled as the knife started to turn.

    I find it hard to find much pity. He was given what, $4 Billion?

    I am sorry to say that all I can take is satisfaction in his misery. It also boggles me that the human mind can operate in such a fashion. Lucas created something beloved my millions, but hates that creation.

    There is also the point that Disney seems to be only a slight improvement, under current leadership.

    Want to make a ton of money Disney? Re-release the original trilogy, remastered but un-tinkered. That’s it. Release. Cash checks.

    I respectfully disagree. Not sure that it would have been good, but at least Lucas could make good characters.

    • Luke says:

      Objection: Leigh Brackett made good characters.
      Star Wars had archetypes more than it had characters. They became characters in the Empire Strikes Back, directly due to Leigh.
      Lucas gained more control in Return of the Jedi, and the wheels started falling off.
      Followed by Lucas gaining total control and retconning the archetypal characters in the remastering.
      Followed by the utter inanity of an unfettered George Lucas in the prequels. Seriously, try describe any of the characters without invoking their clothes or job. Calling them two-dimensional is being kind. Worse, they don’t successfully tap into Jungian archetypes, so the utter failure is highlighted.

      • ChrisValentine says:

        That description is, to some degree, a simplification of the actual surrounding facts. SFDebris did a very good series on the various pitfalls Lucas faced in making the various movies. Its quite long, but also fairly exhaustive.
