George Lucas says he will make television shows

(Posted August 4, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

Star Wars creator says that television is an easier medium to work in than film.


In a keynote speech at an annual computer graphics convention, Star Wars boss George Lucas said his company Lucasfilm will be more focused on TV. He hinted that he won't produce any theatrical films in the near future, and that directors and writers who want to work with Lucasfilm would be steered toward television projects.


Lucas also said he didn't want Industrial Light & Magic, his special effects house that revolutionized visual effects starting in the late '70s and recently moved into a spacious new campus in San Francisco, to get any bigger than it already is. If a major studio builds a competing F/X house, Lucas said he won't try to compete by forcing ILM to grow larger as well. "You lose too much of the humanity," he said.

 

With that, he turned off his eyes, wrapped himself in an energy cocoon, and was carried away by robot servants.
