Lucas has film plans

George Lucas is done with “Star Wars,” but not with filmmaking.

The “Star Wars” creator said he's looking forward to making his “own little personal films” that he doubts will be for the theater crowd.

Lucas recently spoke at Ebony magazine's Power 100 Gala, shortly after announcing the sale of his storied Lucasfilm to Disney for $4.05 billion.

Lucas was “very sad” let Lucasfilm go but excited about his educational foundation, which will benefit from the sale.

He also plans to make more movies. His last one was this year's “Red Tails,” about the Tuskegee Airmen, but he said he barely got it in theaters.

He said the movies he's working on now “will never get into theaters.”
