Having created a couple of little known flicks you might not have heard of - Star Wars and Indiana Jones - Lucas is swapping Hollywood for crosswords and Werther’s Originals.
But hang on a minute. This is the man who created the blockbuster, for Yoda’s sake. Will he really be content walking his dog round the block? We think not.
That’s why we’ve come up with a few ideas of how George could while away the hours…
A spokesman wouldn’t confirm if Lucas has more money than God because we didn’t ask one, but it’s safe to say George has more money than Greece so why not buy Greece? It’s great for holidays and hummus is lush.
Lucas said he’s retiring to “my garage with my saw and hammer” but how about retiring to his garage with MC Hammer. Now that’s a reality show we’d pay to watch...
KEEPING UP WITH LUCAS & HAMMER - Episode I
MC HAMMER: This is my new workbench.
GEORGE: Very nice.
MC HAMMER: You can’t touch this. [beat] This is my new power drill.
GEORGE: Wow, it loo--
MC HAMMER: You can’t touch this.
GEORGE: [Under his breath, into a microphone] Release the Rancor.
MC HAMMER: Pardon?
But maybe Lucas is really retiring to his garage to build his very own Death Star, which he’ll launch into orbit next Summer so he can make movies in space.
If that’s the plan George, can we come too? It’d be an experience to Jedi for.
