When his film "Red Tails" was released earlier this year, George Lucas said that he was retiring and ready to move on to other things - which, yes, would mean no more "Star Wars" films.
The filmmaker reiterated as much when TMZ photographers flagged him down as he was exiting an L.A. eatery on Wednesday. They asked when fans would get to see the seventh, eighth and ninth installments in the "Star Wars" series - and, well, the answer is don't hold your breath.
"Never," Lucas responded as he made his way to his car. "I'm retired."
It looks like he meant what he said in an interview with New York Times magazine earlier this year: "Why would I make any more ['Star Wars' movies] when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?" he inquired. "I think there are a lot more important things in the world."

As the star of a wildly popular film franchise, you’d think Daniel Radcliffe would be well-versed in pop culture phenomenons. But as it turns out, Harry Potter himself hasn’t seen “Star Wars”!
In an interview with Moviefone, Radcliffe reveals that he’s never seen the 1977 space opera. “Yeah, I know. It’s really bad,” he says of the gap in his film knowledge.
The 22-year-old actor explains, “I saw 'The Phantom Menace,' and everyone's like, ‘You saw that one! You didn't see the originals?!’ I know! I was ten! I didn't know any better!”

If you're upset with George Lucas over his controversial audio tweaks in this month's Blu-ray release of the complete "Star Wars" saga, you may get the chance to talk it over with him at dinner - if you save your pennies.
In celebration of all six "Star Wars" episodes being available for the first time on Blu-ray - along with a whopping 40 hours of extra content - Lucasfilm has launched an initiative to benefit Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C).
Through Friday September 23, you can bid on one-of-a-kind "Star Wars"-related goods on eBay - including dinner with Lucas. (Francis Ford Coppola, John Lasseter, Chris Columbus and Phillip Kaufman will be there, too!) Other items for bid include a "Star Wars" edition 2012 Volkswagen Passat and over 100 collectibles.

Two feuding costars you thought you’d never hear about - Harrison Ford and Chewbacca – addressed their “rift” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” this week.
Ford was plugging his new flick, “Cowboys & Aliens,” when a certain furry “Star Wars” co-star stopped by his dressing room to say hello. What ensued wouldn’t be out of place on a “Real Housewives” reunion special.
