George Lucas has revealed why he opted to sell Lucasfilm to Disney, a choice he called “painful.”

Lucasfilm, the first Star Wars franchise hub, was sold to Disney in 2012.

The filmmaker spoke to author Paul Duncan for his new book, The Star Wars Archives: Episodes I-III 1999-2005. Duncan shared an excerpt of the book on Twitter, which featured the conversation with Lucas.

“I’ve spent my life creating Star Wars – 40 years – and giving it up was very, very painful,” Lucas went on. “But it had been the proper thing to try to to . i assumed i used to be getting to have a touch bit more to mention about subsequent three [films] because I’d already started them, but they decided they wanted to try to to something else.
