George Lucas : There is no Star Wars Beyond Episode IV (Return of the Jedi) March 25, 2008

The expanded Star Wars universe – all the great stuff in Star Wars Legacy of the Force books and the Star Wars Legacy series….ISN’T Star Wars to George Lucas.

In an interview over on StarWars.com Lucas admits that for him it ends with Episode IV (Return of the Jedi)

Do you think you’d have other people continue the Star Wars saga past Episode VI or turn some of the other material into films?

But there’s no story past Episode VI, there’s just no story. It’s a certain story about Anakin Skywalker and once Anakin Skywalker dies, that’s kind of the end of the story. There is no story about Luke Skywalker, I mean apart from the books. But there’s three worlds: There’s my world that I made up, there’s the licensing world that’s the books, the comics, all that kind of stuff, the games, which is their world, and then there’s the fans’ world, which is also very rich in imagination, but they don’t always mesh. All I’m in charge of is my world. I can’t be in charge of those other people’s world, because I can’t keep up with it.

Gheeesh. Sounds like a bitter old guy.

There’s rich stories set after Return of the Jedi that could be turned into some great films. But I guess he dosnt need the money any more. Nice for him.

Lucas says the films were about Anakin?

It wasn’t about Anakin till all the prequels came out that’s when he made it about Anakin.

I’m starting to get annoyed with Lucas.

You know, I actually kind of like that. I’ve read some of the books and comics that take place after the movies, but they’ve never really made the same impression on me that the OT did. I’m glad that the EU is out there, but I think it’s kind of cool to view it as a slightly different thing than the movies.
