Star Wars Producer on the Prequels: ‘I’m Not a Fan’

Now that the Star Wars series is out on Blu-ray with all sorts of additional tweaks made by the ever-tinkering George Lucas, it's generating debate about his three prequels once again. Expect that conversation to heat up even further with the release of Lionsgate's documentary The People vs. George Lucas, coming to DVD on October 25. In this exclusive clip from the DVD's special features, the prequels are unfavorably dissected by Gary Kurtz, a producer of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and American Graffiti, who acknowledges the movies' technical expertise while admitting he has "trouble with them on several different levels," including story and character.
