Here is a piece of bad news for all the sci-fi movie fans out there.
One of the pillars of sci-fi films revealed that he is retiring from making commercial films and will just focus on making small films out of his garage. Star Wars creator George Lucas, 68, said he has decided to retire from making blockbuster movies so that he can spend the majority of his time in his garage making non-commercial films, which happens to be his true passion.
Lucas said after years of making big films, he realized that it is now time to make hobby movies that make him smile and feel happy. Although some people are clearly sad about his retirement, others are skeptical that Lucas will really retire from making big films. Skeptics said Lucas has often said he wants to retire from making commercial films, but he has always continued to crank out the hits, including the recent Red Tails, which he produced.
Whether Lucas’ announcement is true or not, the fact remains that he will be sorely missed if he really decides to retire from making commercial films. The man is a genius at creating special effects in movies.
