Lucas: Spidey silly, more Star Wars not
Okay, let me get this straight — the Spider-Man movies are silly, but Jar-Jar Binks is a nifty idea?
Ohh-kay. Glad we cleared that one up.
George Lucas tells Fox News‘ Roger Friedman, regarding Spidey, "It’s a silly movie. There just isn’t much there. Once you take it all apart, there’s not much story, is there? People thought Star Wars was silly, too. But it wasn’t."
Oh, and he’s making two more live-action Star Wars films for TV, which he tells Friedman should be about an hour each, "but they won’t have members of the Skywalker family as characters. They will be other people of that milieu."
Are Tag and Bink too much to hope for, or are they just too silly?
