    This is one of the reasons George's input for episode 9 is not needed at this point.

    Until he sold everything ... nobody on earth has been able to tell him "no" since Star Wars was a hit.

    Filmmaking is a communal effort and a lot of people influenced the making of Star Wars but the way some people downplay the role George Lucas had in the making of the original film, a film he wrote and directed, is pretty foolish. People forget how much of a weird, unconventional film the original is on its own terms and a lot of that comes from the weird, awkward young man Lucas was.

    A lot of this stems from the reactions the prequel got, that he screwed up the thing he created, which is kind of true, but I think that had more to do with, not just being surrounded by sycophants, but by being holed up at Skywalker Ranch for 22 years and not directing anything himself. David Lynch rightly said Lucas was never really in love with directing and the best thing he could've done was pass off the prequels to other directors like Empire and Jedi. /ramble

    Didn't he actually ask other directors to come in and do the prequels, i think ron howard said he was approached for it back in the day, it's just nobody wanted to touch them due to the reputation that grew around the original trilogy over the years.

    I wonder if the average Star Wars fan has any idea what a Richard Marquand or Irvin Kershner is?

    The Kirsh at least made other good movies, is still praised by the cast, has tons of cute pics from set, and lived long enough to make it past the dark times and recorded interviews and audio commentaries etc.
