Thursday’s New Years eve domestic box office should move Star Wars the Force Awakens into second place all-time domestic box office. Star Wars the Force Awakens should be the All time Domestic box office movie by Tuesday after 19 days of release.
Star Wars the Force Awakens is showing a slower dropoff in daily earnings than some other blockbusters. This seems to indicate that a $1 billion domestic box office is assured by the end of January and a final total could be $1.5 billion in domestic box office.
“Disney] wanted to do a retro movie,” he said. “I don’t like that. Every movie, I worked very hard to make them different, with different planets and different spaceships…”
Lucas also talked about creating story outlines for the new films, which Disney didn’t use.
“[Disney] looked at the stories, and they said, we want to make something for the fans. I said, all I wanted to do is tell a story of what happened, it started here and went here… it’s a family soap opera, ultimately. We call it a space opera, but people don’t realize it’s actually a soap opera, and it’s all about family problems. It’s not about spaceships.”
* So George Lucas did not want to make Star Wars movies for the fans
* George wanted to make Star Wars soap opera
Therefore confirming what fans knew that Disney saved Star Wars for the fans by freeing Star Wars from George Lucas
