George Lucas shares his thoughts on Martin Scorsese’s comments about Marvel films not being ‘cinema’

Star Wars AND Indiana Jones Creator George Lucas recently shared his thoughts on the director Martin Scorseseis of the opinion that Marvel films are not “cinema”. He talked about it, offering his point of view on the current state of Hollywood.

During an interview at the Cannes Film Festival, Lucas was asked about Scorsese’s views on superhero films, and he responded:

“Look. Cinema is the art of a moving image. So if the image moves, then it’s cinema. I think Marty has changed his mind a little.

Lucas went on to talk about how there is no original thought and imagination in the Hollywood studio system: “The stories they tell are just old movies. Let’s make a sequel, let’s make another version of this movie. There is no original thought. The big studios have no imagination.”

I couldn’t agree more with Lucas. It’s rare to see a major studio greenlight an original film idea. They are simply no longer willing to take risks.

Lucas went on to confirm that he is retired and said, “The last thing I did as a producer was something called Strange magic, which is an animated film. So I was making the films that I wanted to make rather than…funding myself and having my own studio. I’m building a museum in Los Angeles. It keeps me very busy.”

I’m sure Lucas will keep busy, but I’d definitely like to see him come out of retirement and make another movie one day.
