I saw this tweet on Phil Szostak’s twitter feed and it’s a very important message delivered by Lucas himself back in 2005:
I think it’s so easy to forget why George Lucas made Star Wars in the first place. I sometimes forget about the real world when I watch Star Wars films or I am writing about something relating to Star Wars. But George knew exactly what he was doing when he created these characters. He wanted them to be a long-lasting and positive influence on the world.
Some people do take things way too seriously which is when you kind of have to step back and be like “okay, this isn’t positive”. Especially those people online who take Star Wars to the extreme making death threats against the actors who portray fictional characters in the Star Wars universe. That isn’t what Star Wars is about and it surely isn’t what George Lucas created.
Thanks for reading, stay safe out there my friends and I’ll catch you tomorrow!
