George Lucas may have bowed out of the "Star Wars" game, but that doesn't mean he's out of the loop while work on the new trilogy unfolds. During an interview with Flicks and the City, Lucas' son, Jett, who was in "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith," detailed his father's involvement with the new movies.
"He's constantly talking to J.J.," Jett said, referring to director J.J. Abrams. "Obviously J.J. was handpicked. He is there to guide, whenever. He'll help where he can. At the same time, he wants to let it go and become its new generation."
Jett compares George Lucas' passing of the torch to that of a parent struggling to watch his or her 18-year-old leave the house. He's happy to see the series go yet still mourns the loss.
Watch the entire interview to see Jett Lucas discuss some of the speculation surrounding the "Star Wars" movies, including Saoirse Ronan's audition and his own involvement. "I already know what happens," he said. "I'm happy with what's going to happen."
