Star Wars creator George Lucas is so confident about his abilities as a filmmaker, he refuses to listen to movie-goers. The movies in the Star Wars series have attracted a massive worldwide audience, but Lucas insists he never listens to what fans say about his films. The 57-year-old director says, "I'm able to tell the story the way it's meant to be told, and I don't have to listen to what (studio) market research does. They would be listening to the fans - and these people think you should be doing this, and these people think you should have that character in there. These (stories) are not put together by a marketing department. They're purely sort of a creative act that was created to tell a great story."
