Prequel haters have been hoping that George Lucas would be heavily involved with the new Star Wars movies so they’ll have a reason to bash them endlessly and write more songs about Lucas raping their childhood. Well, it looks like they’re in for some crushing disappointment as Lucas has revealed that his involvement as a “consultant” is really nothing more than being a Star Wars encyclopedia that they can call to find out who characters are and how they connect, as he explained to Access Hollywood:
“[If the filmmakers ask],‘Who’s this guy?’ I can tell them,” he told Access at the event in Los Angeles. “I mean, they have a hundred encyclopedias and things, but I actually know a lot. I can say, ‘This is this and this is that.’”
“Basically I’m not — I don’t really have much to do,” he said.
So as you can see, his involvement is minimal. You don’t have to worry about Lucas messing up the movies in any way.
