The People vs. George Lucas Episode II

If you haven’t seen the 2010 documentary The People vs. George Lucas and are a Star Wars fan, you’re missing out on a great examination of the lack of relationship between George Lucas and his fans. I thought it covered its bases pretty well, but apparently the filmmakers think there’s more to say, so they’ve announced The People vs. George Lucas Episode II and scheduled its release for December 2015, just in time for Star Wars Episode VII. In this documentary, they hope to examine further developments in the relationship between George Lucas and his fans, including the sale of Star Wars and Lucasfilm to Disney, as well as the future of the franchise without George Lucas.

I wonder if this is a bit premature, since we haven’t been able to see much of Disney’s plan for Star Wars beyond “killing” the Expanded Universe and replacing Star Wars: Clone Wars with Star Wars: Rebels. I guess the filmmakers still have much they want to talk about. And if George Lucas does end up contributing more to the new trilogy beyond his role as Creative Consultant, maybe they’ll have enough to say for a third documentary?
