George Lucas Apologizes For “Very Inappropriate Analogy” Towards Disney [VIDEO]
I guess there is a George Lucas way of doing things, and then there is a Mickey Mouse way. The Mouse now owns the rights of Star Wars... Adios George Lucas!
"It's a very very very hard thing to do." George Lucas explains why he had to "break up" with Star Wars so that he and 'The Force Awakens' could both move on.
According to the New York Post, Lucas says “I have been working with Disney for 40 years and chose them as the custodians of Star Wars because of my great respect for the company and Bob Iger’s leadership. Disney is doing an incredible job of taking care of and expanding the franchise. I rarely go out with statements to clarify my feelings but I feel it is important to make it clear that I am thrilled that Disney has the franchise and is moving it in such exciting directions in film, television and the parks.”
