Not everyone’s favorite Star Wars films are made by Disney. Some hate them, like Marcia Lucas, the former chief editor of the first three films in the George Lucas franchise. In a recent interview, the one who was his wife from 1969 to 1983 strongly criticized the big-eared firm, the main characters as well as the various scriptwriting decisions.

“They did not understand the magic of Star Wars”

While being interviewed, Marcia Lucas violently criticized current Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, as well as director JJ Abrams, for all of their scriptwriting decisions. ” Now that she’s running Lucasfilm and making movies, it seems to me that Kathy Kennedy has no idea what Star Wars is. With JJ Abrams they don’t understand a thing ” did she say.

The choice to kill Han Solo and Luke Skywalker particularly upset her. ” They got rid of Han, they disintegrated Luke. They killed Han Solo, they killed Luke Skywalker, and they no longer have Princess Leia. And yet, they spit out movies every year! They didn’t understand the magic of Star Wars She blasted.

For the ex-wife of George Lucas, Rey’s character is simply disgusting. « They think it’s important to please a female audience, so their main character has turned into a female supposed to have Jedi powers. »She indicates. ” But we don’t know how she got these powers, or who she is. It sucks! The intrigues are terrible. Just terrible. Horrible She adds.

Now 75, the former editor, who also worked on American Graffiti and Taxi Driver, ends her interview by proposing to Kathleen Kennedy and Abrams to ” come talk to him “. Hopefully the multiple and upcoming Star Wars productions will rise in his esteem …
