George Lucas told Cannes on Friday how he had to sneak into his own first premiere at the French film festival and explained why 'Star Wars' movies have always been for kids.

US director George Lucas attends a “Rendez-Vous With George Lucas” at the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, southern France, on May 24, 2024. George Lucas told Cannes on Friday how he had to sneak into his own first premiere at the French film festival and explained why “Star Wars” movies have always been for kids.

“It’s always great to be recognised,” he said. “Obviously we have a lot of fans and all that kind of stuff. But in terms of awards, I don’t make the kind of movies that win awards!”It was a box office flop, and studio Warner Bros refused to pay for him to travel to France when it was selected for the festival.“We got to see the movie. We snuck in. We didn’t have tickets. We didn’t have anything. We just went in,” he said.

Lucas recalled how he was then approached by a Fox executive, offering to make “anything you want… you got any other movies?”
