Movies / George Lucas and ‘Star Wars’: 7 of His Biggest Mistakes

There’s no doubting George Lucas’s legacy as the creator of the Star Wars franchise. Back in 1977, he single-handedly revolutionized the way we see science-fiction, spawning a saga that would become one of the most expansive and beloved fandoms in the world. As it is with any great filmmaker though, Lucas wasn’t without various flaws. As years went on, those flaws became more and more prevalent, leading to a level of fan vitriol that’s been unprecedented in Hollywood.

That all being said, we’re not here to talk about George Lucas the man. Having never met the guy ourselves, we can’t rightly judge whether or not he’s a good person. That’s not the goal here. What we’re trying to suss out is the reasoning behind some of the more ill-fated Star Wars decisions he made along the way.

It’s worth noting that we’ll be affording him a pass on a few things, most prominently Luke and Leia’s kiss in Empire Strikes Back, based on the assumption that their familial relationship wasn’t yet determined at the time. We’ll also let go of the excessive use of green screens in the prequels, having come around in an era when the technology was just developing.
