George Lucas was initially much more Luke Skywalker like. Around Return of The Jedi he became more like Anakin, when he started to listen more to the lie that SW was only for kids, instead of an all ages mythology. He was seduced by the very thing he warned against, technological prowess alone over soul. By the time of the sale to Disney, he fell prey to anger hatred but most of all, fear. He was afraid of what would happen to SW if he passes away, who would have the strength and resources to keep the SW fire alive.
He thought he could trust the massive cash and legal power of Disney to keep SW safe. He thought Kathleen would keep her word and not betray him and the work and vision he once had in SW, he thought Iger would do the same. He thought wrong.
The light and the hope of SW movies is now mostly extinguished, murdered by the ideological insanity of Kathleen, the greed of Iger, the laziness of Jar Jar Abrams, and the cowardice of Ruin Jonson.
But, the fire and spirit of what made SW is not dead. The things that inspired Lucas to craft a great vision is still there. The way he once saw the potential in combining old pulpy serials, westerns, Kurosawa, universal mythology and most of all, treating the external and internal conflict of good and evil with sincerity heart and respect. Those things are still there and will always be there, though it will not come from Disney. But it will someday return in one form or another from someone else. SW has passed into twilight, but it will never truly die. It can't, the power of good stories are too strong.
Merry Christmas everyone, may the Force be with you. Always.
