Dead horses beware!



Nothing disgruntles fans haven't said, but it's another thing to hear it from people who worked in the industry, especially the woman considered by many to be the person who "saved" Star Wars in the editing room.

A very dead horse. At this point you might as well discuss who's to blame for the fall of the Roman Empire.

But it doesn't matter why Star Wars died because Lucasfilm likes it the way that it is now. They could fix it in one day but they won't.

You're not wrong, but for a lot of us it's vindication to hear it from someone who played a vital role in bringing us the original trilogy. She feels the same way a lot of us do.

For me it's closure.

Yeah, if only Marcia Lucas or Howard Kazanjian were producing, then the sequels could have been awesome like No Easy Way, A Good Son, The Amati Girls, or Extreme Days.

I didn't like the sequel films either, but I don't think these two are in any way authorities in good movies.

Marcia Lucas is an editor, not a writer or moviemaker. And she happens to have edited all three original Star Wars movies, American Graffiti, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore and Taxi Driver. Not a bad resume I gather.

Also, the interview in the book is from 2017, just after The Last Jedi was released. Those were the times when if you didn't like TLJ with all your soul you were a toxic racist misogynistic incel who lived in his momma basement (why never in the attic is beyond me). She was a trailblazer in criticising Disney for how Star Wars was being mismanaged, not an also ran.
