Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” may have turned out to be a great success at the box office but George Lucas, the creator of the ‘Star Wars’ universe’, is not happy with the new movie.
In an interview with Charlie Rose, Lucas, who had sold the rights to Disney for USD 4 billion in 2012, refers to ‘Star Wars’ movies as his “kids”, reported the Entertainment Weekly.
“I sold them to the white slavers that takes these things, and…,” Lucas said with a laugh.

“They looked at the stories, and they said, ‘We want to make something for the fans’. They decided they didn’t want to use those stories, they decided they were going to do their own thing.
“They weren’t that keen to have me involved anyway — but if I get in there, I’m just going to cause trouble, because they’re not going to do what I want them to do. And I don’t have the control to do that anymore, and all I would do is muck everything up and so I said, ‘OK, I will go my way, and I’ll let them go their way’,” Lucas said.
“The Force Awakens” has already earned USD 1.23 billion at the global box office.
When asked about his opinion about the new movie, Lucas said he was not a fan of the “retro” approach.
“They wanted to do a retro movie. I don’t like that. Every movie, I worked very hard to make them different. I made them completely different – different planets, different spaceships to make it new.”
