After battling studio executives to get his historical war movie Red Tails released last year, Lucas told Empire magazine that he is sick of Hollywood politics and finally ready to retire.

He said: "I'm moving away from all my businesses, I'm finishing all my obligations and I'm going to retire to my garage with my saw and hammer and build hobby movies.

"I've always wanted to make movies that were more experimental in nature, and not have to worry about them showing in movie theatres."

Lucas has also said that he will not be involved in any future Star Wars projects, though he will reportedly have a hand in an upcoming live-action Star Wars series that is currently in development.
