Wow. It worked! The Internet broke George Lucas!

There’ll be no living with it now.

The criticism got to Lucas. He found it difficult to be creative when people were calling him a jerk. “It was fine before the Internet,” he says. “But now with the Internet, it’s gotten very vicious and very personal. You just say, ‘Why do I need to do this?’ ”

Well, the most obvious answer there is: you don’t.  Instead, you sell your intellectual property to Disney, which has this weird idea that you’ll sell more product if you produce product that people want to buy.

  1. That’s a radical concept for a company the size of Disney in this day and age. It would probably be smarter of Disney to hire a few lobbyists to get themselves declared “too big to fail”, or a “priceless national cultural icon” or some such.

  2. I’ve always said George Lucas could do whatever he wanted with his stuff. If we want to buy it, is another matter. I can also criticize said work without being insulting. The prequels and everything since, to say the least, has been bad.
    The exception being Genndy Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars microseries. Everything Tartakovsky touches is gold.

  3. George Lucas then went on to show the reporter the giant plane he was building named the Spruce Goose, and his collection of stool in mason jars. . .
