George Lucas Talks About "Breaking Up" With Star Wars & Disney

One of the big questions surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens is what role did George Lucas play in the story of the sequel trilogy.  We've heard for a while that Disney and the filmmakers decided not to use Lucas' story treatments and we've heard conflicting statements about how much Lucas' story ideas were changed.  Lucas appeared on CBS this morning yesterday and appeared to set the record straight on how involved he was in the new Star Wars.  Check out the video below,

So it seems that Lucas was not very involved in the project.  It sounds like there may have even been some hurt feelings during the early phase of the "break up", as Lucas puts.  I think it's disappointing that Lucas is almost completely uninvolved.  That being said, we know from New York Comic Con that at least some of Lucas' ideas were used by the Lucasfilm Story Group to flesh out the story between Episodes VI and VII.
