So Kathleen Kennedy will be taking over the franchise. Hey, she could hardly do worse than the prequels.

Here’s what’s interesting to me: Lucas made the first trilogy through Hollywood and blew the doors off the genre. When he finally returned to it, after so many years of trying and failing to do other work, he decided to go indie, with no other boss but himself.

We all know how well that worked out.

Now he’s back to it again, and he’s not only going corporate, but he’s turning the whole thing over to the corporations.

Some people just weren’t meant to put out their own stuff.
