《星球大戰》系列原創者佐治魯卡斯 (George Lucas)日前於一個訪問中直言不喜歡近日屢創票房紀錄的電影《星球大戰:原力覺醒》;對於迪士尼收購《星戰》系列版權一事,他更形容感覺像「把自己的孩子賣給白人奴隸販子」(“sold them [my kids] to the white slavers”)。節目出街後引起公眾哄動,佐治魯卡斯隨即發表聲明,向迪士尼道歉,稱於節目上「失言」及「錯用比喻」,並澄清自己為迪士尼擁有《星戰》版權感到「興奮」 (thrilled)。

近月上映的《星球大戰:原力覺醒》自開畫以來在世界各地口碑不俗,也不斷刷新電影票房紀錄。但至少有一個人不喜歡這齣電影 — 他是《星球大戰》系列原創者佐治魯卡斯 (George Lucas)。繼去年 11 月公開批評新戲的劇本婆媽如肥皂劇後,他日前再於一個電視節目上,坦言自己不喜歡這齣旨在懷舊的電影。

"[Disney] wanted to do a retro movie… I don't like that."

被主持人 Charlie Rose 問到將來有否機會為《星戰》新作出謀獻計,魯卡斯否認並明言迪士尼不傾向讓他參與其中。

"They weren't that keen to have me involved."

魯卡斯又於訪問中形容自己將一手一腳創作的《星戰》系列電影為親生骨肉,而當年將《星戰》版權賣斷予迪士尼的舉動,就好像將子女賣給「白人奴隸販子」(white slavers) 一樣。2012 年,佐治魯卡斯以40.5億美元(約315.9億港元)將《星戰》版權賣斷予迪士尼影業。

"All those Star Wars films ... I loved them, I created them, I'm very intimately involved in them, and I sold them to the white slavers that take these things…"

訪問於星期三(美國時間,下同)播出後引起廣大爭議。佐治魯卡斯隨即於星期四發表聲明向迪士尼道歉,稱於節目上「失言」及「錯用比喻」。

“I want to clarify my interview on the Charlie Rose Show. It was for the Kennedy Center Honors and conducted prior to the premiere of the film. I misspoke and used a very inappropriate analogy and for that I apologize.”

他又指自己與迪士尼合作多年,尊重該公司,亦盛讚迪士尼經營及發展《星戰》系列表現出色,他為該公司擁有《星戰》版權而興奮。

I have been working with Disney for 40 years and chose them as the custodians of Star Wars because of my great respect for the company and Bob Iger’s leadership. Disney is doing an incredible job of taking care of and expanding the franchise. I rarely go out with statements to clarify my feelings but I feel it is important to make it clear that I am thrilled that Disney has the franchise and is moving it in such exciting directions in film, television and the parks. Most of all I’m blown away with the record breaking blockbuster success of the new movie and am very proud of JJ and Kathy.”
