George Lucas Does Not Have 'Much To Do' With 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

121203_LucasGeorge Lucas will take some part in the planned Star Wars: Episode VII planned by new Lucasfilm owner Disney, but it will likely be a minimal role.

Speaking at the Governor's Awards Saturday, he gave some insight on his duties in the next Star Wars installment being guided by Disney.

"[If the filmmakers ask],'Who's this guy?' I can tell them," he told Access Hollywood at the event in Los Angeles. "I mean, they have a hundred encyclopedias and things, but I actually know a lot. I can say, 'This is this and this is that.'"

Continuing, Lucas added, "Basically I'm not -- I don't really have much to do."

Lucas recently said in a more official capacity following the sale of Lucasfilm: "... Now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I've always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime."

He also said he'd like to do "little personal films" going forward.

Speculation has continued to swirl over who will direct the next Episode VII, though Lucas' longtime friend, Steven Spielberg, nipped any rumors he's in the running recently saying Star Wars is not his 'genre.'

"I'm pretty sure he'd never want to do that!" Lucas said when asked if he'd give his approval should Spielberg ever change his mind. "I don't think he'd want to."

Star Wars: Episode VII is slated to hit theaters in 2015.
