At the Emmys Sunday night, Ewan McGregor picked up an award for his performance in Halston and notably showed up without his iconic Obi-Wan Kenobi beard. McGregor later confirmed to Deadline after his Emmy win that filming on the Star Wars series has wrapped and teased it will live up to all the hype:

“We finished shooting our series, and it was really, really good fun. I really enjoyed working with [director-executive producer] Deborah Chow, and I think it will not disappoint. The new technology that we employed doing it is cool, and it was a different experience than making the original three films that I did.”

Original ‘Star Wars’ Editor Marcia Lucas Roasts Disney’s Sequel Trilogy

"It sucks. The storylines are terrible." The post Original ‘Star Wars’ Editor Marcia Lucas Roasts Disney’s Sequel Trilogy appeared first on Heroic Hollywood.

Original ‘Star Wars’ Editor Marcia Lucas Roasts Disney’s Sequel Trilogy

Star Wars editor Marcia Lucas recently shared her honest thoughts about Disney’s sequel trilogy.

Disney’s Star Wars films have been largely successful both crucially and financially. However, there’s still plenty of discourse out there from fans and even those who worked on the original films.

‘Star Wars 9’ Editors Feel ‘The Last Jedi’ Undid ‘The Force Awakens’

Marcia Lucas, an ex-wife of George, is considered to be the unsung hero of A New Hope after “saving” the original Star Wars film in the editing room and won an Oscar for it. In the book “Howard Kazanjian: A Producer’s Life,” Lucas spoke out against Disney’s sequel trilogy

“I like Kathleen. I always liked her. She was full of beans. She was really smart and really bright. Really wonderful woman. And I liked her husband, Frank. I liked them a lot. Now that she’s running Lucasfilm and making movies, it seems to me that Kathy Kennedy and J.J. Abrams don’t have a clue about Star Wars. They don’t get it. And J.J. Abrams is writing these stories—when I saw that movie where they kill Han Solo, I was furious. I was furious when they killed Han Solo. Absolutely, positively there was no rhyme or reason to it. I thought, You don’t get the Jedi story. You don’t get the magic of Star Wars.”

Marcia Lucas continued to pull no punches with her critiques of Disney’s Star Wars trilogy:

“You’re getting rid of Han Solo? And then at the end of this last one, The Last Jedi, they have Luke disintegrate. They killed Han Solo. They killed Luke Skywalker. And they don’t have Princess Leia anymore. And they’re spitting out movies every year. And they think it’s important to appeal to a woman’s audience, so now their main character is this female, who’s supposed to have Jedi powers, but we don’t know how she got Jedi powers, or who she is. It sucks. The storylines are terrible. Just terrible. Awful. You can quote me—‘J.J. Abrams, Kathy Kennedy—talk to me.’”

In the book, Marcia Lucas didn’t have nice things to say about the prequel trilogy either:

“George is, in his heart and soul, a good guy and a talented filmmaker. I wish he would’ve kept directing [other kinds of] movies. But when I went to see Episode I—I had a friend who worked at ILM, who took me as a guest to a preview—I remember going out to the parking lot, sitting in my car and crying. I cried. I cried because I didn’t think it was very good. And I thought he had such a rich vein to mine, a rich palette to tell stories with. He had all those characters. And I thought it was weird that the story was about this little boy who looked like he was six years old, but then later on he’s supposed to get with this princess who looked like she was twenty years old. There were things I didn’t like about the casting, and things I didn’t like about the story, and things I didn’t like—it was a lot of eye candy. CG.”
