Many fans know that George Lucas was the man behind Star Wars and too many he will always be the one that brought the series to life.

It's odd then that George himself has used this rather offensive phrase to describe Disney now owning the franchise.

Speaking to Charlie Rose, George said that selling Star Wars to the movie studio was like selling ‘them to the white slavers that take these things, and …’

He didn't really explain further but we know that he stopped himself there after realizing how that might sound.

Disney bought the rights to Star Wars for $4 billion, a sum which they have already made a quarter back after the first two weeks and after Disney gave the thumbs up to J.J Abrams to head the new three movies George has said a few things about not liking the 'feel' of episode 7.

‘They wanted to do a retro movie, I don’t like that. Every movie, I worked very hard to make them different. I made them completely different — different planets, different spaceships to make it new.’

Though he did acknowledge that if he was asked to be involved he was ‘just going to cause trouble because they’re not going to do what I want them to do’.

‘All I would do is muck everything up.'

There you have it, Finally he admits that he would muck it up. Just like episode 1.
