‘Star Wars’ creator George Lucas opened up yesterday with both barrels when talking about the big hollywood studios.

During his interview on the CBS This Morning program the acclaimed film director call the studios unimaginative and talentless – and given the amount of re-imaging that these studios have been doing. Most would probably agree with much of what Lucas said.

“The problem has always been the studios,” Lucas told Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning.

“Although the beginning of the studios, the entrepreneurs who ran the studios were sort of creative guys. They would just take books and turn them into movies and do things like that.

“Suddenly all these corporations were coming in. They didn’t know anything about the movie business.

“The studios went back to saying, ‘Well we don’t trust you people and we think we know how to make movies’,” Lucas continued. “The studios change everything all the time. And, unfortunately, they don’t have any imagination and they don’t have any talent.”

It wasn’t all negativity from the ‘Star Wars’ creator though. He did acknowledge that some talented people have come out of the studio system. After all he got his start within that system before he struck out on his own with ‘Star Wars’.
