George Lucas has apologized for criticizing the Disney's handling of Star Wars and saying he had sold his characters to "white slavers" in a recent interview with Charlie Rose.

"These are my kids". And now it looks like the Star Wars creator has realized that.

He explained to USA chat show host Charlie Rose: "I'm 70".

In a statement issued Thursday, Lucas says he misspoke and used a "very inappropriate analogy".

Disney is doing an incredible job of taking care of and expanding the franchise. Of course, most of these interviews are done long before the films premiere or in this case before the Kennedy Center Honors.

George admitted his vision for the "Star Wars" franchise was different to that of Disney.

As for the all-time record, two films by James Cameron hold the top two spots - "Avatar" ($2.79 billion) and "Titanic" ($2.19 billion).
