Jon Favreau Star Wars Series May Film This Fall

14 June 2018

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm with the intention of making a lot more Star Wars movies, Lucas opted out of having creative control over the films and chose to rather instead just take the many billions and not do much.

"Originally, I was trying to have the story be told by somebody else; there was somebody watching this whole story and recording it, somebody wiser than the mortal players in actual events".

As points out, this isn't the first time the filmmaker discusses how he would have continued the trilogy if he hadn't sold his company, Lucasfilm, to Disney in 2012. This is something which Lucas himself has been openly critical of as he has previously lambasted the current trilogy for relying on nostalgia rather than building and exploring new worlds.

Lucas' vision of what he wanted to do with Star Wars will never make it to the big screen the way he wanted to-although there may be more instances of certain aspects trickling in there. She's not the only "Star Wars" actress to distance herself from social media after harassment: Daisy Ridley deleted her Instagram account in 2016. But given that Lucas no longer ran the show, filmmaker J.J.
