“Star Wars: Rogue One” is coming out tomorrow. I just wanted to throw a shout out to one of our writer’s at theOffice, Chris Weitz, as I’m very excited to see the movie!
With the upcoming release of “Star Wars: Rogue One,” I decided to tribute this week’s “In-Depth” article to George Lucas. Not only is he the man responsible for “Star Wars,” but he also created “Indiana Jones” and “American Graffiti.”
Sometimes, writer’s create worlds, characters, and stories that are bigger than themselves. They create a life of their own, which is crazy to think about. When that time comes, a really tough decision has to be made. Kill it or let it live on without you. I think it’s one of the toughest choices as a creator. I wouldn’t say there’s a right or wrong decision to make, and there’s no way to truly know until certain events unfold.
It seems like Lucas has made a wonderful decision to let people enjoy the “Star Wars” universe in new and interesting ways.I imagine it’s a bit like watching your child go off to college. “Star Wars” has created a life of it’s own. There are communities built around it, and people look to the stories for inspiration and entertainment. The stories are a source of great joy for people world-wide. It seems like he completely understands the position he’s in, and wants to let the world enjoy what he’s created to the fullest, even if it means he’s no longer involved. I can’t wait to see what happens with the new stories to be told.
