Lucas plans 'little personal films'
George Lucas looks to move on from his "Star Wars" legacy to pursue other "personal films."
NEW YORK — George Lucas is done with "Star Wars," but not with filmmaking.
The "Star Wars" creator says he's looking forward to making his "own little personal films" that he doubts will be for the theater crowd.
Lucas spoke Friday night at Ebony magazine's Power 100 Gala, days after announcing the sale of his storied Lucasfilm to Disney for $4.05 billion. The deal would allow for more "Star Wars" films.
Lucas was "very sad" let Lucasfilm go but excited about his educational foundation, which will benefit from the sale. He also plans to make more movies. His last one was this year's "Red Tails," about the Tuskegee Airmen, but he said he barely got it in theaters. He said the movies he's working on now "will never get into theaters."
