George Lucas Star Wars
After some major deals and a dose of new blood, the “Star Wars” franchise has finally reached the point where scores of new developments can be tracked with nary a mention of George Lucas within. Instead, J.J. Abrams continues to meet with every massive name around for potential roles in “Star Wars: Episode 7," but it wasn’t too long ago when a hint to the direction of the franchise came from one man alone, and today we’ve got a look back at that quaint time.

We have to tip our hat to this decision, because financially, it finds the studio walking away from easy money. As you might recall, "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" was re-released just over a year ago, the first in a planned series of rejiggered "Star Wars" re-releases, this time in 3D. It did pretty modest business -- $22 million, which isn't bad considering what they spent on marketing and conversion didn't cost all that much -- but it's certainly not "The Lion King" sized numbers either (which went on to surprise everyone by making over $90 million). But even though "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack Of The Clones" and "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith" were slated for back-to-back releases later this year, that's off the table.
