George Lucas Clarifies His Role As "Consultant" On The New STAR WARS Trilogy

George Lucas talks more about his role as "Consultant" on Star Wars Episode VII and comments on those Steven Spielberg rumors. We also have the fourth instalment in the series of video interviews with Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy, titled: "Reflecting on the Star Wars Phenomenon". Check it out!

Access Hollywood managed to get a few words with George Lucas at the Governor's Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday and quizzed him on what exactly his role as "Consultant" means for Star Wars Episode VII and beyond. After the mostly disastrous prequels, many fans have met the idea of Lucas having ANY involvement with the new movies with a great deal of trepidation (despite him creating the beloved universe and characters). "[If the filmmakers ask],‘Who’s this guy?’ I can tell them. I mean, they have a hundred encyclopedias and things, but I actually know a lot. I can say, ‘This is this and this is that.’" In other words, "Basically I’m not — I don’t really have much to do," he added. As for those recent reports about Steven Spielberg helming Episode VII, Lucas was also quick to dismiss the idea, stating: "I’m pretty sure he’d never want to do that!"
