Because you dissed the Star Wars prequels, George Lucas has sworn he won't ever make another movie about that faraway galaxy. He says, "Why would I make any more, when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?"

In an interview with the New York Times, he also seemed stung by criticism that he changed the original Star Wars trilogy too much for the various re-releases:

On the internet, all those same guys that are complaining I made a change are completely changing the movie. I'm saying: 'Fine. But my movie, with my name on it, that says I did it, needs to be the way I want it.'


Yes, you have scared off Lucas from making Star Wars: Episode VII. I hope you're proud of yourself. Lucas said Red Tails, in theaters this weekend, would be his last blockbuster movie. Although he wouldn't rule out making one last Indiana Jones film, as his swansong.

And Lucas claimed that the "nuke the fridge" scene in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was his idea, even though Steven Spielberg took the blame for it in an interview a while back. Spielberg was "just trying to protect me," said Lucas. But he also said that scene was totally fine, and "the odds of surviving that refrigerator – from a lot of scientists – are about 50-50."
