George Lucas Reveals His Post-‘Star Wars’ Plans and New Movies

No 'Star Wars: Episode 7' for George Lucas! In case you haven't heard (yeah right), Lucas recently sold his Lucasfilm empire to Disney for a meager $4 billion, giving the future of 'Star Wars' over to the Mouse House and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.

But what about George? He'll act as creative consultant on the next 'Star Wars' trilogy, starting with 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' but by and large he'll be leaving the force in someone else's hands. So the question is, what does the man do with his time now?

VW Super Bowl Commercial Tease [VIDEO]

Last year, Volkswagen had one of the best Super Bowl commercials with their pint-sized Darth Vader who channeled the force to start Daddy's VW. Looks like Star Wars is the theme again this year with a teaser ad that has a pack of dogs barking the Imperial March. (Love the Chewbacca dog!)

If this ad has you saying, "What?" - Volkswagen says it will all make sense when you see their Super Bowl ad. I say, it doesn't have to make sense - it's dogs barking the Imperial March! Awesome!
