George Lucas still occasionally – kind of – offers some minor input into Star Wars, Kathleen Kennedy tells Entertainment Weekly.
“Not really,” she said. “But he’ll whisper in my ear every now and then. Usually it’s something specific or important to him about Jedi training. Things like that.”
She also said he’s beginning to “settle” into not having an active hand into the franchise.
“I think he’s starting to settle into this and just be a fan,” she said. “It’s taken a while. It’s hard to let go, after 40 years. That’s a lot of expectation and things he thought a lot about. Suddenly that next generation, that whole thematic idea he came up with, is in process.”
