Oscar Isaac, one of the actors in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, recently spoke out about how George Lucas should have kept franchise at just the original trilogy. However, he clarified that Lucas had every right to do whatever he wanted to his work.
Isaac told The Huffington post,
“As an artist, like, he made the sh*t, so why can’t he do whatever the heck he wants with it. There’s a part of me that appreciates that he doesn’t really care if people are upset about it.”
However, he clarified that he liked the original trilogy the way it was.
“But as a fan, I’d much rather go back and watch the old thing, because it’s a product of the time. It’s what did you do at the time with the things that you had. And that’s what made that movie so amazing. At that time with that technology he made this thing and it was f*cking awesome. So, you know, to go back and kind of tweak it with new stuff, it doesn’t make it more interesting for me as a watcher. It makes it less interesting, but I can’t fault him for doing that”.
