What can you tell us about the new Star Wars films?
[Kathleen Kennedy (June 5, 1953)]
[George Walton Lucas, Jr. (May 14, 1944)]
Why you’re asking questions when you know we can’t answer?
Well, we can certainly say that we’re absolutely going to make movies. We’re sitting down with a couple of writers and we’re starting to discuss ideas and we’re starting to talk about what those stories might be, and we’re recognizing that I think they could be pretty fun and pretty great.
And what do you see your role as creative consultant, what does that mean?
I just said that I would, I would back her up and I would be there if and especially helping with the script and making sure the script sort of – there’s a lot of blank spots in the story treatment – if we can fill in and…
I think the incredible thing about George is, this is not like a series of books like Harry Potter where you’ve already got a template of what the stories might be.
These are original stories and original ideas that come out of a world that essentially is in George’s head. So the beauty of the collaboration that can continue is, as we work our way through these scripts, if we’re sitting and saying hmm, you know, I wonder if this character can do that, or does this make sense within the rules of Star Wars, that’s really; he’s the keeper of the flame when it comes to that.

It’s the same thing with the first three films. That’s all my job is, is to be the keeper of the flame.
You know, it’s really exciting because I think there’s a whole generation of filmmakers that have been inspired by George and Star Wars and they’re absolutely thrilled, excited, and daunted at the prospect of possibly being able to step in and carry the mantel of making these movies. And I think that’s exciting too, is that those new filmmakers coming into this franchise and being able to take all the incredible ideas and characters and places that we can go within this universe offer incredible opportunities.
What do you looking for in a director?
Enthusiasm, obviously you know having a sense of how to tell stories within complex worlds like this. There are many people who sprang to mind, with writers and directors that I’ve worked with in the past that I’m really excited to try to bring into the fold on this. I think we have a unique opportunity to go after some incredibly talented people. It’s not going to people who don’t already have some affinity for Star Wars probably. It’s going to be somebody who really appreciates what Star Wars meant to them and is excited to dive in and be a part of this. I think that’s the thing that I think will become immediately apparent, are the directors who walk into the room and say, I can’t wait to be a part of this.
Well, and since you brought it up I suggest that everybody send the resume to you. Well not to Kathy, she doesn’t have time.

Yeah, I think it’s going to be a pretty long list.
