During his 60 MINUTES interview with Lesley Stahl on March 28, George Lucas had this to say:
"The problem is the studio executives.
"The problem is that the studios used to be owned by people who cared about the movies. Now they're corporations.
"They don't love movies. They don't go to movies. They don't know what a movie is.
"And they do focus groups to try to determine who will go see a movie. And Hollywood does that. They try to change the story to fit what they think what the polling results are."
"You can't do that. That's not the way you make movies.
"Because it is not a business. ... It is an art form."
