Pedogate: George Lucas Wanted Indiana Jones To Be A Pedophile
Conversations with Steven Spielberg reveals sinister ideas for characters
In the planning stages for the first Indiana Jones movie, a transcript of a conversation George Lucas had with Steven Spielberg reveals that Lucas originally wanted the main character to be a pedophile who had raped an 11-year-old girl when he was 25.
During the conversation, Lucas suggests that the older man, Indy, was a young girl, Marion's, mentor when he started a relationship with her when Spielberg adds that they should say that the child "came on to him".
Lucas then goes on to say that once the girl becomes 16 or over, the relationship "becomes uninteresting".
The conversation between the creators of the film seems odd at best, but when you consider recent arrests in Hollywood of pedophile rings, the need to for relationship between a grown man and a child in the film becomes even more sinister.
Recently a string of former child stars has come forward to expose a power Elite pedophile ring that "controls Hollywood" with Corey Feldman even attributing the death of his childhood friend Corey Haim to ritual child sex abuse.
The part of the transcript of most interest is:
George Lucas: I was thinking that this old guy could have been the mentor. He could have known this little girl when she was just a kid. Had an affair with her when she was eleven.
Lawrence Kasdan: And he was forty-two.
George Lucas: He hasn’t seen her in twelve years. Now she’s twenty-two. It’s a real strange relationship.
Steven Spielberg: She had better be older than twenty-two.
George Lucas: He’s thirty-five, and he knew her ten years ago when he was twenty-five and she was only twelve. It would be amusing to make her slightly young at the time.
Steven Spielberg: And promiscuous. She came onto him.
George Lucas: Fifteen is right on the edge. I know it’s an outrageous idea, but it is interesting. Once she’s sixteen or seventeen it’s not interesting anymore. But if she was fifteen and he was twenty-five and they actually had an affair the last time they met. And she was madly in love with him and he...........
And here is a line from "Marion" the female in the film:
Marion: "I was too young, it was wrong and you knew it,"
Indy's response: "You knew what you were doing"?
According to Escapist Magazine: In the Indiana Jones films, the beginning of the love story of Indy and his main flame Marion goes something like this: Indy's the protege of Marion's father, who's a top-tier archaeologist. Naturally, as usually happens when people go on archaeological digs together, Indy, who was in his mid-20s, and Marion, who was in her teens, end up falling in love. The relationship ends when Jones decides to be a jerk and runs off to do his own thing.
That already sounds pretty sketchy, but it seems relatively benign compared to George Lucas' original idea for the relationship. According to the recently released transcript for Raiders of the Lost Ark that documents Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Lawrence Kasdan's brainstorming sessions for the film, Lucas originally wanted Marion to be even younger.
"[Jones] could have known this little girl when she was just a kid," the transcript has him saying. "Had an affair with her when she was eleven."
Shortly afterward, Lucas wants to make her twelve. "He's thirty-five, and he knew her ten years ago when he was twenty-five and she was only twelve," he said. Then, as justification for the age gap, he says that "it would be amusing to make her slightly young at the time."
Amusing? More like illegal, buddy. Anyway, as the transcript goes on, Lucas reveals a fixation on the age gap, even as he seems to become aware that he sounds completely insane and starts suggesting Marion be older. "Fifteen is right on the edge," he said. "I know it's an outrageous idea, but it is interesting. Once she's sixteen or seventeen it's not interesting anymore."
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.
