Does anyone want another Star Wars flick?

A new “Star Wars” flick comes out in August.

It’s a cartoon, based on characters from the second, really crap set of movies.

The New York Times has an annoying interview with George Lucas today. The article begins with the legendary director/producer talking about how he doesn’t like to sell movies.

“I love making movies; I’m not the biggest fan of selling them,” he said. “But since I’m in the selling mood, that’s what you’re here for. I’m doing all my selling for two more weeks. Then I’m sold out.”

However, the article goes on to say that “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” the latest flick, is introducing a new “Star Wars” cartoon that will air on the Cartoon Network.

Lucas is sick of selling, but he made a new movie simply to sell a new television series?

And, on a side note — how is that George Lucas continues to build upon the bland characters created in those horrible prequels?

Depressing.

  1. Instead of jumping on the Lucas-bashing bandwagon, why don’t you wait until the box office results before asking such a moronic question as “does anyone want a new Star Wars movie”? It constantly amazes me how many people find it to be the in thing to do to trash anything created by Lucas, yet they all (including you I’m sure) flock to the theater every time he releases a movie.

  2. “I love making movies; I’m not the biggest fan of selling them,” he said. “But since I’m in the selling mood, that’s what you’re here for. I’m doing all my selling for two more weeks. Then I’m sold out.”

    Sure….

  3. Bryan: Why does one have to wait until the movie comes out before asking the question “does anyone want a new Star Wars movie?”
    I think you meant to say, “I, Bryan, want to see the new Star Wars movie.”
    I haven’t seen a Lucas flick in a theater since that first Star Wars prequel. I waited to see the others on HBO.
    As far as trashing everything the man creates, I offer one name: Jar-Jar Blinks.

  4. Well first of all, I didn’t say “why does one have to wait until the movie comes out before asking the question”….I asked YOU to wait until you see the box office before asking that question, since the answer will no doubt be “the majority of the WORLD”. I stand corrected on your personal experience with seeing the movies in the theaters, but the fact remains that you are among a very small minority, so you can’t argue with the man’s success, nor the popularity of the films. 9 out of 10 people trash everything Lucas does, yet those same 9 find themselves at the theater every opening day.

  5. Hey Bryan,
    First of all . . . thank you very much for commenting, I really appreciate it!
    I don’t think “Clone Wars” is going to to make tons of money. If I read the article correctly, it cost just $1.5 million to make. That is $1.4 million less than what Lucas spends to trim his beard these days.
    I look at the latest “Star Wars” flick as nothing more than an attempt to build some cheap buzz for the Cartoon Network series (why else would they open the film so late in the summer?).
    Based on the fact that George Lucas himself had trouble selling the cartoon series, I do not think 9 of his 10 detractors will be there on opening day.
    I loved THX-1138. American Graffiti never gets old. Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and, albeit to a lesser extent, Return of the Jedi are classics.
    Star Wars, 4, 5 and 6 sucked, as will this crappy cartoon.

  6. I didn’t realize there was a Star Wars movie coming out until this past week. I have no intention of seeing it. I’ve seen only the first prequel, and it honestly sucked. I’m not even that huge a fan of the old trilogy.
