I think I can safely say, he is the only one who created an incredible six-part space saga. And now it seems he has decided to retire. It is George Lucas we are talking about.
According to Empire, the creator of Star Wars and founder of Lucasfilm has decided to “move away:”
“I’m moving away from the company, I’m moving away from all my businesses, I’m finishing all my obligations and I’m going to retire to my garage with my saw and hammer and build hobby movies. I’ve always wanted to make movies that were more experimental in nature, and not have to worry about them showing in movie theatres.”
Lucas had his ups and downs. A down I really can’t forget is the huge disappointment that was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But I like to think he just need to find his muse again and that this is not a goodbye to film industry.
