all I can say is I think I would much rather have what we got than that “microbiotic” world…https://www.flickeringmyth.com/2018/06/george-lucas-says-fans-would-have-hated-his-star-wars-sequel-trilogy/
What he’s describing sounds like Osmosis Jones, which I don’t even he would want a SW film to be like. He’s probably just poorly describing his ideas. I assume they’d have the creativity of the Prequels, which would be a marked improvement over the Sequels we got in at least that regard. I wonder if he’d have learned some lessons from the Prequels and avoided making the same mistakes. As Jar Jar’s role proves, he responds to criticism at least to some extent. It’s pretty clear he wouldn’t have directed the whole trilogy. I suspect he’d have taken an approach similar to the Originals, if not even more backseat. Hell, for all we know, maybe he’s doing that right now but (understandably) doesn’t want anyone to know.
We didn’t find out until after the Disney deal that the real reason he wanted his own studio space was so he could make the ST right there in his backyard.
I love the idea of George Lucas, waking up, grabbing some breakfast, and heading to the set of the latest Star Wars in his PJs.
From what I understand Solo was being developed by Lawrence Kasdan even before the Disney buyout, and Lucas had at one point planned to write/direct Episode VII himself.
Add to that Rogue One being in development before the buyout.
