[Movies] George Lucas Discusses His Level of Involvement with Star Wars: Episode VII Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.03.2012
What will he do as a consultant?
As previously reported, George has revealed that he will be "just a consultant" in relation to future Star Wars films following Lucasfilm's purchase by Disney. But what exactly does that mean? According to Lucas, not all that much beyond a source of background information.
Lucas spoke with Access Hollywood about his role in the new films and said, "[If the filmmakers ask], 'Who's this guy?' I can tell them. I mean, they have a hundred encyclopedias and things, but I actually know a lot. I can say, 'This is this and this is that.' Basically I'm not — I don't really have much to do."
Star Wars: Episode VII is being written by Michael Arndt and will hit theaters in summer of 2015.
