This was back in the day, mind you - the age of long hair, tight jeans, cocaine.

Pretty sure pedophilia was frowned upon then too.

That's not what my American History teacher told me...damn public school education.

So now we're lumping the 1980's in with Ancient Greece?

Lol

Its all coming out now isn't it Lucas.. you sick bastard.

I have to agree with anybody that says that this doesn't say anything about Lucas, but the kind of character that Lucas wanted Indy to be, and the kind of movie that he wanted Raiders to be. It would have turned "You broke my heart" into "You ruined my life" and would have severely altered the whole tone of the film. I can just imagine Marion being completely distrustful of Indy, not going anywhere with him, not wanting to be near him, but having to be because he's trying to save her father. And then there is Indy, feeling incredibly guilty for what he has done, feeling that now might be the time to make it right, if he can make it right at all. Granted, Raiders would not have been the sweeping adventure we all know and love: it would have been a dark and deep human drama, one that I don't think audiences were ready for then and would obviously cause no small amount of controversy even now, but a pretty deep movie none-the-less.

Maybe make Marion thirteen-fifteen, and make Indy in his early twenties (21 or 22, still young and dumb enough to do something like this) to narrow the gap and make it a little less creepy, but I could have seen this movie working. Though, I am glad they went the route they did and we have an awesome adventure movie instead of a disturbing examination of adolescent sexuality and mental trauma. I say this was actually a good idea of Lucas', just one I'm glad, in hindsight, he didn't pursue.

Drake the Dragonheart:
That I have to say strikes me as creepy.

no, the empire strikes you as...
well you get it now.

Oookay, one more reason to avoid Lucas.
Not that I needed another one, but... there you go.

Beginning to have serious concerns about the real reason Jar Jar Binks was exiled from Gungan City.

I mean, being exiled for clumsiness? That's got to be a cover!

Really? Never guessed, look when I found out that Lucas and Lea were brother and sister, I breathed a sigh of relief that this creepy bastard didn't do that too anything else I thought was actually good, now I realize that was because someone on the crew was bright enough to slap his hands away from the editing desk and gave him a coloring book, unfortunately that person seems to have gone on and done other things, or died.

indiana jones and the temple of pedo bear instead of the thugees worships a statue of kali ma they worship a statue of pedo bear

Well, it would be an interesting and unusual character flaw. The MPAA wouldn't like it though.

As south park so kindly puts it, Lucas loves to rape things.

After reading some of this, I decided to Wikipedia ol' Georgie. He calls himself a "Buddhist Methodist". What the hell is that?

Longshot:
Everyone is just jumping on the Lucas-hate-bandwagon.

Pretty much.

I have no idea why people would think Lucas is a "pedo" or whatever just because of this. Seems strange to me. Indiana Jones is a work of fiction.

If I write a story where people are murdered, does that make me a murderer? Or would that make me out to have a lust for murder?

zoozilla:

"Cock locked and ready to rock!"[/reference]

That is very strange, though. Then again, it is George Lucas. When you think about it, a lot of Star Wars is quite....weird.

Umm, ANAKIN SKYWALKER is 12. Padme looks to be, weeell, about 24.
Yeah, that totally works out in the end.

Padme is supposed to be 15/16, making the gap only like 4 years. Call it Dawson's Creek casting in her case, they were probably thinking of her as from Leon when they made the decision.

Keane Ng:
Maybe he's just a huge troll and has just been messing with us all these years...

That's surprisingly easy to believe. Of course, the best trolls are the ones who're entertaining to watch.

The_root_of_all_evil:
Which particular parts? Jabba's 'love' slaves but no female Hutts? C3P0 being camper than a row of tents? The kindly old man that wants to show the young boy something out in the desert and then ends up fighting his father? Han and Chewie? Lando and Han? The Trash Monster? Padme turning into Leia? That midichlorians are passed along the family line?

Jabba's from a hermaphroditic race, so that opens up more of the dom/sub idea there than would be safe for the brain. Ol' George's psychology is a fascinating wasteland indeed. This is coming from someone who can enjoy the prequel trilogy un-ironically if he holds his head just so.

Must...resist..making "Ancient Grease" pun...
Damn.

you know, this kind of reminds me of that episode of south park, where indie gets raped by george lucas and steven spielberg

but that was a cartoon and still quite disturbing, not actual people being filmed...

Actually, that's nothing, in my filmmaking society's upcoming shoot the story involves incest and voodoo, and my last idea for a short film included an 18 year old girl whose family all die when she's young and she gets raped and sexually abused by her uncle, who it later transpires is really her father, and she tries to kill herself not long before starting a sexual relationship with her (male) best friend, it's hinted she had a lesbian affair with another friend when she was about 16/17, and she happens to be a crazed sadist who later kills her uncle/father as he tries to rape her again. Oh, and she's about as nutty as a fruitcake and fruity as a nutcake. Now THAT is messed up. Yeah, I'd probably be better pitching this to a film company in Japan... anyway, George Lucas seems pretty tame after that.

Forgot to mention, another film idea I had included a girl who murders her boyfriend and another girl who's in love with a sadistic ghost trying to kill them all. I should probably go see a psychiatrist...

Longshot:
I don't see the problem. Suggesting that Indy had an affair with an 11-year old doesn't say anything about Lucas. Instead, it says something of the character they wanted to create in Indy. Indiana Jones was always flawed. This could have been an element of a darker, even more flawed Indy. It was discarded in the end.

Everyone is just jumping on the Lucas-hate-bandwagon.

I agree with most of that.... how much more interesting would Indy have been had they done this? Sure, it's taboo, but conflict is the essence of drama, so they say...

Um, let's see where to begin. Artists often use art to explore their own desires. George Lucas is a hack to begin with and Star Wars would've died an early death if it hadn't been for Lawrence Kasdan. The first kiss between Luke and Leia, thanks George. The second kiss between Luke and Leia, thanks for not telling Lawrence where that relationship was headed. I really would've rather seen her kiss the Wookie. Really.

CyberKnight:
"Ani, you'll always be that little boy I met on Tatooine." --Padme, Episode II
I thought that line was creepy before...

This.
Given how much little boy fantasy is in a bunch of movies created by a guy who clearly never matured as an artist I'm really sure his desires come through. Finally: Big time hero movie is also a full on pedo from the same guy that brought us ewoks? Lucas built the hate bandwagon himself and installed a large scoop on the front of it. Even if Lucas doesn't belong in NAMBLA I'm pretty sure Kyle and Stan would have a field day with this one.

EDIT: Let's say for one moment you're right. How well do you think George would've handled it? Think Young Indiana Jones would've made it? Would we have wanted it to?

Marion was 16, not eleven

Macgyvercas:
Marion was 16, not eleven

That's the point, George Lucas originally wanted her to be 11, then 15 before settling on 16. He wanted Indy to be a paedo, basically.

Macgyvercas:
Marion was 16, not eleven

What... have you not READ the THREAD? The point is, Lucas' original ideas for the films was that she would be eleven. *facepalm*

Edit: Ninja'd.

Is it me or would the Temple of Doom be a very fucked up film if this actually happened.

Trivun:
...and another girl who's in love with a sadistic ghost trying to kill them all.

Go watch "The Frighteners", they did that. :-)

i suddenly feel sick

I'll be right back, I think I have a use for the Ion Array now....

Fair enough, I wouldn't mind seeing that actually, but The Frighteners was meant as a comedy horror, whereas my film idea is sicker than Hostel. Characters die in a car crash (viciously mangled and still alive, they die slowly), suicide by hanging, they see visions, girl kills her boyfriend then gets stabbed by her friend's ghost in the back of the head, and the remaining two die in a mental hospital. They have their hearts cut out while they're still alive and they both bleed to death. In fact, the girl in love with the ghost tells him that calmly as he's cutting out her heart, and she lets him do it. How messed up is that when you compare it to the Frighteners?

Captain Blackout:

What? You shut your whore mouth! Lucas, a hack? No way...!

/sarcasm

Chris Hansen: "Mr Lucas, why don't you take a seat right there....."

Where's PedoBear when we need him.....?

Uhm, okay, that'd be a wee bit more messed up than The Frighteners... ^^

Is it just me or does "Indiana Jones was nearly a sex offender" sound like a song?

"Indiana Jones was a sex offen-dah
after he was out on that drunken ben-dah
met a young'un from the opposite gen-dah
An' he ploughed her 'till the mornin'!"

Yog Sothoth:

I'm imagining a shoop of an Indiana Jones DVD with the pedobear seal of approval on the box...since it would be my second PB pic post in less than 24 hours I'm gonna leave it though.

But I will say this...11...11...ELEVEN?! Seriously? What? Was he just trying to make everyone hate the main character from the get go? Trying sabotage the film? What?

Well, this is the guy who raped Indy, Short Round, and a Storm Trooper. Nothing really surprises me about George Lucas anymore.

So freaking what?

Indiana Jones is a FICTIONAL character. And as far as I know, there is NOTHING illegal about depicting a murderer, child rapist, and any other "negative" thing. It's not a real person, it's not real life, so what the fuck is your problem?

I agree it does sound slightly creepy, but... so what? There is rape, murder and torture in the movies, and as far as I know, these things are seen as rather negative in real life.

I can't say I'm a fan of the guy, mostly because he's a money-whoring bastard who killed Star Wars. Or helped, anyways. But why do you even care that he's supposedly a "deviant".

George Lucas: The most successful troll in history... probably.

I haven't heard or seen anything to make me like Lucas in the past 10 years, makes me kind of sad.

Keane Ng:

As Cinematical points out, this, along with the Padme/Anakin relationship from the Star Wars prequels, suggests that Lucas really has some kind of fascination with romances with age-gaps. Don't forget the relationship between Luke and Leia, either. That was pretty off, too. George Lucas, a sexual deviant? Never would've guessed it.

I forgot that Anakin was a little kid when he met Padme. The Luke and Leia thing freaked me out.

the captain:

Nice South Park reference.

You know, in my honest opinion, Episode 1 was crap, but I've seen worse. Episode 2 was okay, but not up to Star Wars standards. Episode 3 is arguably better than Episode 6 (mainly due to ewoks, however Episode 6 does have that very nice opening in Jabba's palace). The Clone Wars miniseries was FANTAS-diddly-ASTIC, but that was done by Tartoskovy, with approval and suggestions coming from Lucas. The new Clone Wars movie is not only the worst Star Wars movie ever made, but it disrespects the miniseries. The 4th Indiana Jones movie was only slightly better than Episode 1 of Star Wars, mostly due to the few scenes where Indy actually fights the Russians.

But this is sad, however, I think Lucas likes writing kids, and they were just brainstorming. They may just have been goofing off with some very sick humor, at least it wasn't incorporated into the movie.

I don't know what to say...my current opinion of Lucas is mixed. He has made some great movies, some crap movies, definitely is a sell-out, but for some reason still likes to think he's doing good. I think he is redeemable, as seen by the gradual rise in quality in Episodes 1-3, but is still very unlikely to change his ways.

Meh, at least he isn't as bad as SONIC TEAM, right?
