The essential biography of the influential and beloved filmmaker George Lucas. On May 25, 1977, a problem-plagued, budget-straining independent science-fiction film opened in a mere thirty-two American movie theaters. Conceived, written, and directed by a little-known filmmaker named George Lucas, the movie originally called The Star Wars quickly drew blocks-long lines, bursting box-office records and ushering in a new way for movies to be made, marketed, and merchandised. It is now one of the most adored-and successful-movie franchises of all time. Now, the author of the bestselling biography Jim Henson delivers a long-awaited, revelatory look into the life and times of the man who created Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Indiana Jones. If Star Wars wasn't game-changing enough, Lucas went on to create another blockbuster series with Indiana Jones, and he completely transformed the world of special effects and the way movies sound. His innovation and ambition forged Pixar and Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic, and THX sound. Lucas's colleagues and competitors offer tantalizing glimpses into his life. His entire career has been stimulated by innovators including Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola, actors such as Harrison Ford, and the very technologies that enabled the creation of his films-and allowed him to keep tinkering with them long after their original releases. Like his unforgettable characters and stories, his influence is unmatched.

The step-by-step companion to the work of George Lucas. George Lucas has directed only five full-length pictures in thirty years, and yet he is one of the most influential of all contemporary filmmakers: not simply a director, he's also a writer, a producer and an unparalleled technical pioneer, responsible for advances in digital projection, CGI and quality cinema sound. Yet he remains defiantly outside the Hollywood system, financing his - and other people's - pictures out of his own funds, creatively answerable to no one but himself.Starting with his time as a film student, this is a critical journey through the films Lucas has directed and actively produced. It encompasses his abstract early works such as Look at Life and 6.18.67, the mainstream successes of American Graffiti, Star Wars and Indiana Jones and the record selling Star Wars prequel trilogy. There is also an extensive section detailing other projects in which he has had a hand, such as Paul Schraeder's Mishima, Haskell Wexler's controversial Latino and Francis Ford Coppola's Tucker: The Man and His Dream. Thsi is an indispensable reference to the work of George Lucas- the mogul, the mythmaker, the one man brand and the most successful independent filmmaker who has ever lived.
