Avatar Can Top Star Wars Says Lucas
Grand-high nerd George Lucas has said that James Cameron’s new film Avatar (out on 18th December) has the potential to be better than Star Wars.
However if he’s talking about the recently made prequels than we suppose that isn’t saying much.
“Creating a universe is daunting,” Lucas told The New Yorker when asked about Cameron’s latest project.
“I’m glad Jim is doing it – there are only a few people in the world who are nuts enough to. I did it with Star Wars, and now he’s trying to challenge that. It’s a lot of work.”
Then in a sentence which Yoda would have been proud of he added: “I do believe Jim will take this further out than anyone’s ever conceived of.”
Try conceiving yourself a dictionary mate.
