All of these questions are very much tied together. We all want MORE Star Wars movies, I think that’s not really up for debate for fans. But we want them to be GOOD, and recently that would seem to mean wrestling complete creative control away from George Lucas, something it’s clear he shouldn’t have. The first three Star Wars films were a collaborative effort between many, many people, but now? Lucas is supreme overlord of the property, and the new trilogy was him from start to finish. If the same rules applied to new movies, would you even want him to make them?
The debate at Unreality magazine has commenters pouring out their feelings. Link
Irvin Kershner certainly made the best one and Lucas needs to quietly step away and let someone else pick up the ball....
It's his creation, he can do whatever the hell he wants with it. So what if he replaced the ghost? Why are you so bent out of shape for such a stupid reason? Get over it. You act like he decided to blow up Yavin IV and kill of the Republic.
People like to hate on the prequels; take every little pointless detail and over analyze it. The guy above me is a great example.
