George Lucas Says Filming STAR WARS Was Painful

George Lucas recently gave some candid commentary to EW (via Blastr) on what it was like to film Star Wars: A New Hope. Lucas revealed that the process of filming was hard, painful and unpleasant at times.

Here is what he had to say:

I didn't expect the film to be successful at all. I don't think anybody did.

He goes on to say:

The first film was really hard. It was painful. It was unpleasant. We never had enough time or enough money, and we were always compromising on everything, and it was a difficult experience all the way around.

Phantom Menace is being re-released in 3D on Feb. 10, 2012. Even though the filming process was so "painful" for Lucas, I plan on going to see the films as they arrive in theaters. Are you looking forward to seeing them again in theaters? What do you think about Lucas' statements above?
