Art & Experience: George Lucas might have created the modern blockbuster with 1977’s Star Wars, but a new interview with the director suggests that he’s not the biggest fan of his (accidental) legacy.

In the interview, Lucas gives his thoughts on the new “Star Wars” film, and he says that he doesn’t enjoy being criticized for making the movies he wants to make.”You can’t experiment. You can’t do anything. You have to do it a certain way. I don’t like that; I never did.” He’d rather make experimental films.

“I started out in experimental films, I want to go back to experimental films, and of course, nobody wants to see experiemental films.”

The Star Wars creator, who sold all rights to the long-running space opera to Disney in October 2012 for $4bn ($2.61), has remained largely in the background as new episode The Force Awakens gathers hype ahead of its release next month.
