Biography George Lucas: Creating an Empire


Rating:   Not Rated
DVD Release:    
Studio:   A&E

Publisher's Summary:
A two-hour portrait of the genius who created some of the cinema's greatest treasures, including American Graffiti and the Star Wars series.

George Lucas: Creating an Empire is an amazing life story of one of the most imaginative and prolific creators of film. When he was young, George didn't take school - or anything else - seriously. But when he enrolled in film school, it was clear he'd found his calling.

His first successful film was American Graffiti, but Lucas is best known as the man behind the Star Wars trilogy, three of the most popular movies of all time.

He developed new technology and filmmaking techniques that revolutionized Hollywood, and the phenomenon continues with three much-anticipated new movies, including Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

Lucas has gone on to build a film empire that includes Industrial Light and Magic, the top special-effects company in the world. His epic story is told by much of the cast that has been a part of his life, including Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Harrison Ford, Ron Howard, Carrie Fisher, Liam Neeson, Haskell Wexler, Peter Travers, James Cameron, his sister Kate Nygaard, his daughters Amanda and Katie, George himself, and many other friends and associates.
