Not sure if we’ve had a specific thread on Lucas’ inconsistent statements before.
There are a few older threads re various interviews and speeches by George Lucas in the ‘Archival / Historical discussions’ section of the General SW Discussion Index - and the ‘George Lucas / Lucasfilm’ section of the Theatrical Cuts vs. Subsequent Releases Index which highlight some of contradictions or discrepancies from the man himself. Though unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be one thread that goes through them all - or none that I can find so far…
Hopefully someone here will remember one (or know of one elsewhere) 😃
