Art vs Artist 2021
Once again I have no idea what I am doing, but I am still doing it. I suppose that is a perfect segue into my biggest problem with Star Wars: It’s Creator. George Lucas.
Even though he wrote the entire original and prequel trilogies, the only reputable films in the series that George Lucas has directed was the very first Star Wars. Like many creators, and quite honestly most humans, Lucas capitalized on his success to propel his career and form the basis for most of his decisions since then. The problem is that although he created what many fans believe to be the best of Star Wars (Original Trilogy), he also created what many believe to be the absolute worst (Prequel Trilogy).
This presents an interesting dynamic between the creator and the fans, as while some acknowledge Lucas as a genius, others chose to outright omit him from the story altogether. While those of us who were raised on Star Wars: The Clone Wars don’t suffer from this conundrum as much (Absolutely everything Dave Filoni works on is of consistently good quality), we can still emphasize. After all, is the creator truly a god if he isn’t always good?
Lucas himself has been treated as an expert and held himself high among Star Wars fandom. He famously owns a piece of property in California named Skywalker Ranch, and often is treated as the expert. In my last post I mentioned how Dave Filoni was hired on to Star Wars: The Clone Wars. His Interview consisted of George Lucas sitting down with him and explaining how a Jedi would resolve a conflict peacefully. As cool of an interview as that is, Lucas cares more about how his work will be interpreted than the quality of the person producing it.
If you, unlike me, favor Lucas’ direct works, i.e. the Original and Prequel Trilogies, then you have mixed feelings on praising him. The Jedi Church religion itself denies direct involvement with Lucas as a member or founder, separating the art from the artist in a very direct manner.
So Lucas treats himself as the great creator, and Star Wars fans treat him generally as the vehicle of the creation of their love. He is neither a god nor a fool though. He is just a guy. The original Star Wars was hardly truly original, and it’s writing isn’t as indelible as many hold it up to be. It’s setting and effects are what stand out, which is something even I recognized as a child. Now with more years under my belt, Luke Skywalker’s journey is the same as the “Hero’s Journey”.
But I guess I can touch on the writing itself next time.
