She was the film editor of the original trilogy. She didn't hold back. Also apparently she really hated Rey.

Always interesting to see what the people involved with an original work think of continuations made by others. Thanks for sharing.

No wonder George dumped this crazy broad lol

The whole foreword is her just lashing out at everything (I despise the sequels and Disney, BTW)

Of all things, she saved and helped make Star Wars a big name alongside the other editors.

"They don't get it," Lucas writes. "And J.J. Abrams is writing these stories — when I saw the movie where they kill Han Solo, I was furious... Absolutely, positively there was no rhyme or reason to it. I thought, You don't get the Jedi story. You don't get the magic of Star Wars. You're getting rid of Han Solo? And then at the end of this last one, they have Luke disintegrate. They killed Han Solo. They killed Luke Skywalker. And they don't have Princess Leia anymore. And they're spitting out movies every year."

A bit hyperbolic, no? She did her job, alongside a team of other editors and George Lucas.

Lets not kid ourselves, the only great Star Wars movies were New Hope and Empire Strikes Back. There hasn't been a truly great SW movie in over 40 years.

She won an Oscar for the editing, and considering the amount of special effects and sound effects, it was very much a movie that was "made" in post production.
