George Lucas Was Working On ‘Star Wars’ Episodes 7, 8 & 9 Before Disney Acquisition; “Constantly Talking” To J.J. Abrams
Almost a year ago Disney first announced that they had purchased George Lucas’s Lucasfilm and that a fresh new trilogy of ‘Star Wars’ films, as well as standalone movies, would be on the horizon. George Lucas’s son, Jett, has revealed in an interview with Flicks and the City that the Star Wars creator was “very torn” on letting go of the series, comparing it to a parent sending their kid off to college. “I knew that he was very torn on the matter, he was like a kid who had turned 18 and was ready to leave the house. Every parent has wanted to let their children go, but they want to hold on to you.”
He also reveals that his father had already started work on new episodes before the Disney acquisition, “We knew probably a year prior (to the purchase) he had started writing and researching, starting his whole little process. About a year later was when the idea of selling to Disney came up…It’s nice because he’s happiest when he’s writing and doing something with his time.”
Co-written and directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ won the top honor at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the Palme d’Or. The film is set to be released in France on October 9th, in the US on October 25th, and in the UK from November 15th. The film centers on a 15-year-old girl named Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) who is climbing to adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A classmate (Jeremie Laheurte) falls for her, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with an overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma (Léa Seydoux), who will soon enter Adèle’s life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction.
