While today’s helping of Star Wars news has little to do with Star Wars: Episode VII and who may be directing or starring in it, it does provide interested fans with a bit of backstory on why George Lucas decided to step aside and how Kathleen Kennedy came to preside over Lucasfilm, and the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. It’s the third installment of the five-part interview hosted on StarWars.com (you can find the two previous sessions here and here). Hit the jump to hear Lucas and Kennedy relive the good ol’ days. 

Check out the third portion of the interview with Lucas and Kennedy below:
