Simon Pegg Says Disney Star Wars Is Missing George Lucas


Simon Pegg may have located his brain.

Previously Simon Pegg already admitted to losing that lovin’ feeling after seeing The Force Awakens.

Then back in July, Simon Pegg confessed his past sins to IndieWire, and paid penance to the Collective by renouncing his own criticisms of Jar Jar Binks.  After having been forgiven by his fellow drones, he was at liberty to impune the purely imaginary harassers of Kelly Marie Tran, free from accusations of hypocrisy.  During that confession, he called The Last Jedi

“…just in a film — a fucking film, that’s all it is. None of it matters, none of it.  I think it would be nice if everyone just got on.”

Simon Pegg himself however,  would not seem to be just getting on.

Simon Pegg reaches another personal milestone, as he comes to realize that Disney Star Wars is missing George Lucas.  ScreenRant reports on Simon Pegg’s latest comments:

“I must admit, watching the last Star Wars film [The Last Jedi], the overriding feeling I got when I came out was, ‘I miss George Lucas.’ For all the complaining that I’d done about him in the prequels, there was something amazing about his imagination. I do feel like his voice is missing from the current ones.”

  1. Simon Pegg should kill himself. I know. I know. Too far. But, let me explain myself. 20 years. 20 years we’ve had to put up with Simon Pegg endlessly, carelessly and mercilessly dumping on Lucas and his SW legacy with The Prequels and calling them baby killing and we’ve been told we shouldn’t say similar things? No. No no no no. We will not have it. I say WE WILL NOT HAVE IT.

    NO CARE.
    NO PITY.


  2. Itchy, you know what’s really funny about this. Every single news outlet has reported it as him talking about The Last Jedi – but he didn’t say The Last Jedi, he said ‘the last one’. EVERY media outlet has reported it with [The Last Jedi] in square brackets, but guess what, the last one was Solo. Everyone forgot about Solo existing, hahaha. And everyone simply assumed he must mean TLJ, because y’know, it sucks.

    It’s left me very curious, was he talking about TLJ or Solo? Because the articles all erroneously report ‘the last Star Wars film’ as being [The Last Jedi]. I listened to the actual podcast, which no one seems to have done, and they still spend plenty of time shitting on the fans, repeating media lies, and shitting on George Lucas, giving him filmmaking tips even, LOL.

    There is one separate comment that drops a subtle hint from Pegg that he is on the side of TLJ critics vs defenders, but when he made the ‘I miss George Lucas’ comment it’s not clear if he was referring to TLJ or Solo.

  5. I couldn’t care less about Simon Pegg. The fact that he feels that SW is “missing” Lucas speaks volumes. With the 4 dumpster fires pushed out by Di$ney, it was made abundantly clear that SW is missing Lucas.

    But Lucas sold it because he wanted other people to do stuff with the IP.He wanted to be part of the creative consultant part of things. But Iger and Kennedy didn’t want him around in any capacity. And the attitudes of JJ, Pegg, Whitta etc. didn’t help things back in 2015.

    Though I never thought I would see ole’ Peggy boy actually saying this stuff.
