Quote of the Day: George Lucas on “Star Wars”

George Lucas, who’s penned all five Star Wars films–including Attack of the Clones, to CNN:

“I’m able to tell the story the way it’s meant to be told, and I don’t have to listen to what [studio] market research does.

“They would be listening to the fans–‘and these people think you should be doing this, and these people think you should have that character in there.’

“These [stories] are not put together by a marketing department. They’re purely sort of a creative act that was created to tell a great story.”
