George Lucas says studios don’t have any imagina

October 20, 2014, 09:29 AM

Those are the words of George Lucas to CBS’ Charlie Rose, during a public inteview at Chicago Ideas Week. Lucas created Star Wars for a film studio, 20th Century Fox, but negotiated to own the property (and all of its incredibly lucrative merchandising rights), and as soon as he was capable, he essentially operated as the biggest and wealthiest independent filmmaker in the world. Lucas financed his own movies, made them to his own specifications, and then only used the studios as distributors.
