For the past year there’s been more and more people talking about Marcia Lucas and how important she was to Star Wars and how it’s because of her the series is what it is but
It also makes me sad because we talk about her like she’s dead but she’s still alive
After the divorce George didn’t just take Star Wars from her he took EVERYTHING from her
She won an Oscar for Best Editing for Star Wars and she hasn’t worked since the divorce.
He blacklisted her.
People she thought were her friends stopped talking to her
She dropped off the face of the planet.
Literally I wrote a little essay on her a few months ago and the only recent news about her was that there was a house in Southern California up for sale under her name
And I just think about how fucking unfair it is that this woman who made Star Wars no longer gets to be involved and the redemption arc for the new trilogy that I REALLY want is Marcia Lucas coming back to edit again.
