George’s idea of retirement: Make more movies?

“I hate to say it, but basically I’m retiring,” George Lucas said Monday during a dinner with higher-ups at Ebony, according to a New York Daily News blog post. But he goes on to say he wants to focus on making more movies – without having “to worry about entertaining people.” Which is pretty much what he’s been saying for years! Oh, George.

    Decades, actually. The earliest statement about his “personal movies” that I have found so far dates back to winter 1977. ;-)

    If he makes just one more film like American Graffiti, I will be content. That movie is incredible, and he’s never made a better one since.
