George Lucas Announces Retirement
"I'm going to retire to my garage with my saw and hammer and build hobby movies."
Lucasfilms is about to be minus its Lucas, if creator and moviemaker George Lucas is serious about his announcement to retire. In a recent interview with Empire, Lucas spoke a little more on the matter.
“I’m moving away from the company, I’m moving away from all my businesses, I’m finishing all my obligations and I’m going to retire to my garage with my saw and hammer and build hobby movies,” Lucas said. “I’ve always wanted to make movies that were more experimental in nature and not have to worry about showing them in movie theaters.”
So Lucas is down, but he’s certainly not out of the movie business. Although we shouldn’t expect to see him fiddling with either the Star Wars or Indiana Jones universes again, it’s possible that we’ll get a few fresh “hobby” movies from the legendary filmmaker.
