well i certainly miss lucas’ major input in the movies. the man was the very core of star wars - something that’s been clearly missing since he’s been gone imo. one can’t simply replace the core of something like star wars.
continuing a conversation me, dom and coffee had on another thread: i don’t think one can separate creation from creator in this case. to me, it’s just like if 4 guys all of a sudden bought the beatles’ rights and simply decided to produce new albums under the name of “the beatles” - they wouldn’t be the actual Beatles at all.
coffee gave me a very good example as counter argument though - comics - where you have multiple authors. so if i consider the disney star wars movies fan fiction, i’d have to consider 99% of comic books fan fiction. i’m not sure how to respond to that yet, but maybe i do consider all those 99% fan fiction. oh well.
i just wish lucas was still sort of the mastermind behind star wars.
