So, it came out last week that George Lucas likened his movies to his children and Disney to white slavers in an interview. You can search the interview out on Google and see how ludicrous his statement was. However, I would like to present the two following take-aways.
First, if those movies really are George’s children, then a more accurate metaphor would be that Disney and J.J. Abrams are Child Protective Services. Clearly, those movies (and by extension, my childhood) are in much better hands, now.
Second, after reading this article, it is evident that Disney also has some attorneys who have reminded Mr. Lucas that one should be careful how one refers to the people who bought your franchise for four billion dollars. Let’s look at all those zeros: $4,000,000,000. Yes indeed, that is some serious back-pedaling.
