George Lucas Companion

Author:   Howard Maxford
First Edition:   Paperback (January 1, 2000)
Length:   178 pages
Language:   English
Publisher:   B.T. Batsford

Publisher's Summary:
The first of the Star Wars prequels, The Phantom Menace, was released in May 1999 amid colossal excitement from fans and public, and indifference bordering on disdain from critics. The George Lucas Companion charts Lucas's rise to the loftiest heights of Hollywood's elite, his relationships with actors, producers and other film-makers, his technical innovations and the astute way he has played the Hollywood power game as an executive producer. Maxford also includes all available information on the yet-to-be filmed Star Wars prequels 2 and 3.

Besides the Star Wars series, the book covers all Lucas's film and television work, including THX 1138, Willow, the Indiana Jones movies and their spin-off TV series. Lucas's company, Lucasfrilm, has become a powerful independent force in Hollywood. Its special effects arm alone, Industrial Light and Magic, is universally recognized as a world leader. All aspects of the Lucasfilm organization are covered in detail - as are the leading contributors to the Lucasfilm legacy, such as Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Sir Alec Guinness, Lawrence Kasdan and Gary Kurtz.
