George Lucas On Steve Jobs' Resignation

Posted By Eric on August 25, 2011

Yesterday, longtime Apple CEO and tech industry legend Steve Jobs announced that he was resigning as chief executive of the company and moving into a less active role as chairman of the board. The Star Wars angle to this story begins with the fact that in 1986, before he developed some of the world's most iconic portable electronics, Steve Jobs bought what became the Pixar animation studio (which he would later sell to Disney) from an aspiring young director named George Lucas.

When news broke that Steve Jobs was stepping back from his work at Apple, the Wall Street Journal contacted Lucas to get his opinion on the situation. Here's what Lucas told the Journal:

?A person like Steve Jobs comes along once in a lifetime,? [Lucas] said in an email, sent through a spokeswoman. ?Steve?s contributions to technology, marketing and design are overwhelming. He has changed America forever ? for the good ? and has built a strong company that will continue to be creative and successful.?
