Star Wars creator George Lucas sat down with Charlie Rose to talk about the franchise’s legacy — and he appears to be a little bitter with what Disney did with it. Late in the interview, when the filmmaker was musing about the protocols of “breakups,” he let slip — and quickly laughed off — a line that has raised a few eyebrows and rankles. After agreeing that the first six Star Wars films are his “kids,” Lucas referred his $4 billion deal with Disney: “I love [the movies], I created them, I’m very intimately involved in them, and I sold them to the white slavers that take these things and …” — with a rather nervous laugh, he trailed off.

Bitter much, George? No one forced you to sell to the “white slavers” — what a pretentious description.
