George Lucas to Donate  Billion from Disney Deal to Charity

The goddamned George Lucas! Now we have to feel bad when we curse him for making Han shoot first!



Source: The Hollywood Reporter

That George Lucas sure is a dick. He edits the original Star Wars movies whenever he gets a chance and refuses to release the unedited original trilogy on Blu Ray. He made the prequels. He created midichlorians. And Jar Jar Binks. He made Indiana Jones 4. With Shia LaDouche.

Except... he's also a pretty cool dude. I mean, he created Star Wars and Indiana Jones in the first place, which is pretty cool. And then, after selling it and his company, Lucasfilm, to Disney for $4 billion, he pledged to donate all of the profits to charity. The donation continues a pledge made by Lucas in 2010, which said:

I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education. It is the key to the survival of the human race. We have to plan for our collective future—and the first step begins with social, emotional, and intellectual tools we provide to our children. As humans, our greatest tool for survival is our ability to think and to adapt—as educators, storytellers, and communicators our responsibility is to continue to do so.

Is Lucas dying? Is he just so rich that it doesn't matter? Is he thinking about his legacy? Or does he just really, honestly care about people and want to help the country and the human race?

Nah. Remember Jar Jar Binks. Never forget!

Excellent news. This almost makes up for midichlorians.

Well, it sounds like you've outbid the Mexicans, the job is yours.

This way, I'll have a couple cool billion left over for putting birth control in the drinking water and also in Red Bulls.

I read that "since George Lucas will donate most of his Disney proceeds to charity, this means the Star Wars films have done more quantifiable good for humanity than any work of art in history. (Yes, even the prequels. ESPECIALLY the prequels)"

VERY cool.
