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."
Best moment in the article for Lucas haters: sympathy being expressed for the criticism Lucas gets — from Michael Bay. 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.
