George Lucas

  1. Review: “Strange Magic” Is More “Terrible Karaoke Musical”

    Definitely strange, but far from magical.

    I have a lot of respect for George Lucas after hearing him say that he made Strange Magic because he felt girls needed adventure stories as much as boys. After being disappointed by the way he relegated strong women in the Star Wars films to damsels, I get the sense that he's finally getting the point.

  2. George Lucas: I Made Strange Magic “Because You’re Not Supposed to Make [Adventure] Movies for Girls”

    Only the Sith deal in absolutes. Anybody can like adventure movies.

    There's no doubt that even though George Lucas intended Star Wars for young boys, the films appealed hugely to the rest of the human race as well. But this morning, in an appearance on CBS This Morning, the filmmaker discussed some of his motivations behind writing the story of Strange Magic, an animated musical starring fantasy creatures (directed by Gary Rydstrom, with writing credits from Lucas, Rydstrom, David Berenbaum, and Irene Mecchi) that hits theaters this Friday.

  3. George Lucas Says He Was Making Star Wars Episode VII Until Disney Saved Us Stepped In

    When you wish upon a Death Star...

    Listen, I love George Lucas for creating Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and more, and I love the original trilogy, Ewoks and all—especially Ewoks, haters. Yub nub. But unless The Force Awakens turns out prequel-trilogy-bad, I have no desire to see what Lucas would've done with Episode VII, and as he tells it, we were all about to find out until the Disney deal came along.

  4. Mark Hamill Says the Force Awakens Ball Droid Is a Practical Effect He Got to Play With; We Are Jealous

    Don't worry. We can always go back and replace it with CGI later.

    BB-8, also known as the "ball droid," "rolling droid," or "most adorable thing about the Force Awakens trailer" is a real thing that exists in the world, and that makes us so happy. That's not the only thing Mark Hamill talked about in a recent interview, either. Read on for more about Jedi beards, returning actors, and little mechanical balls of wonder.

  5. New Star Wars Attractions Coming To Disney Theme Parks, Will Be Based On The New Movies

    But I wanna blow up a DEATH STAR!

    If your first thought upon seeing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was "whatever that weirdo circular droid is, I wanna ride it," then your dreams might soon come true. Yesterday, Walt Disney Co-Chief Bob Iger announced that the company is looking to expand its theme parks to include new Star Wars-based rides and attractions—but only ones which are based on the upcoming films.

  7. The First Trailer For Lucasfilm’s Strange Magic Arrives

    When we first reported on Lucasfilm's Strange Magic, starring Kristen Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, I was hopeful. After this first trailer though, I'm not quite sure how to feel.

  8. New Movie By George Lucas, Strange Magic, Will Hit Theaters In January

    Aw, yay!

    Personally I'm just happy it's not a Frozen sequel as was previously rumored, but all this other news about the movie is great, too! A new story full of goblins and fairies! CGI from Industrial Light and Magic! Kristen Chenoweth and Alan Cumming in the cast! Yes please.

  9. Dorkly’s Take On George “Child Ruiner” Lucas Is… Different

    "Meesa here to make you question everything you ever loved!"

    You consider yourself damn lucky I didn't use a pic of Jar Jar for this post, TMSers. As for Dorkly's comic... I can't tell you whether there's Jar Jar or not. I don't want to spoil it. The last panel packs quite a comical punch, and you should go in blank.

  10. Meanwhile In Star Wars News: Lupita Nyong’o Is Adorable, George Lucas Is Ornery

    Basically the status quo at this point.

    We don't know much about the role Lupita Nyong'o will be playing in Star Wars Episode VII, but we do know this: she is going to be the best thing about it. Just look at her. Please be our friend.
