When when means you want more (link)

and you will like it!

wtf? This man just cannot leave well enough alone.

Artists are vaguely concerned about their legacy, and how thier work is seen. This man and Art parted ways, many many years ago.

I do agree with the "less is more" philosophy of art. However, if you consider how many Star Wars books have been written by people other than George Lucas, then you can see how much more of the franchise certain fans demand. If they want a Star Trek spin-off with storm troopers, why not give it to them?

Now mucking up the original Star Wars to make Han Solo cuddlier (nice guys shoot last) is less forgivable. This falls into the same category as erasing Rosencrantz and Guildenstern so that Hamlet doesn't have to kill them. Hopefully, a devoted fan and hacker out there will make his own CD version of the original and release it to the underground.

Please, can someone shoot him now. Before I actually hate Star Wars.

"He added that it was unlikely any of the stars of the movies would be involved in the TV series."

If there's a such thing as "No Shit Quote of the Year Award," this oughta be a contender.

At any rate, Lucas doesn't give a rat's ass about his legacy. He just doesn't understand why his later work hasn't had the impact of his earlier stuff, even as sycophants swirl around him telling him what a great job he's doing and how he totally doesn't need any sort of editing or constructive criticism evar.
