When it was announced that Disney bought Lucasfilm and the studio was going to make more Star Wars movies, the question of ‘What will George do?’ rang out and was quickly answered with ‘he’s just a consultant’. Lucas spoke with Access Hollywood about what his being a ‘consultant’ entails.
“[If the filmmakers ask],‘Who’s this guy?’ I can tell them,” he said. “I mean, they have a hundred encyclopedias and things, but I actually know a lot. I can say, ‘This is this and this is that.’ Basically I’m not — I don’t really have much to do.”
Lucasfilm also posted the fourth part of Kathleen Kennedy and Lucas’s conversation about Star Wars which you can check out below. In this segment, they explore what makes the appeal of Star Wars universal.
Disney is said to be planning on taking the ‘Marvel’ approach to Star Wars and releasing a new film every 2-3 years with some that focus on different aspects of the Universe. Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.
