- More Star Wars: George Lucas not only hates fans, but apparently journalists too, as instead of being interviewed by adults, he's asked reporters to bring children to interview him about the rerelease of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in 3D.
George Lucas says he's retiring because he's sad people don't like him anymore, basically. When asked about making more "Star Wars" movies, Lucas responded, "Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?"
Lucas told the New York Times that one studio executive wouldn't even come to a screening of his latest project, "Red Tails."

You also get both Steven Spielberg and George Lucas trying to fall on their sword for being responsible for the much-maligned "nuke the fridge" scene in Indiana Jones & the Crystal Skull.
He does say he'll still make smaller, more personal films, though. Oh, and he'll do another Indiana Jones movie, too.
