Star Wars” creator George Lucas recently sat down for an interview with Charlie Rose where among his many comments, he took a shot a shot at Disney.

He jokingly compared selling the space opera franchise to Disney for $4 billion in 2012:

“sold them to the white slavers that take these things”

Lucas went on to tell Rose that he has accepted his creation being in others hands, and why he decided in not being involved in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”:

“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.

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.'”

The Force Awakens” continues to be a mammoth blockbuster hit, with fantastic reviews from fans and critics, but the one criticism has had in certain corners is the one shared by Lucas; that it’s too nostalgic and doesn’t break new ground, subsequently many have said that the film is a retelling of  “A New Hope” .
