George Lucas A Life

George Lucas: A Life is the long-awaited life-story of the cinema legend and Star Wars creator. This is the first biography of the director to encompass the Star Wars prequels and everything that followed, such as the blockbuster series with Indiana Jones. The book takes us back to 1977, where a problem-plagued, budget-straining independent science-fiction film opened in a mere thirty-two American movie theaters. That was of course The Star Wars, now one of the most adored-and successful-movie franchises of all time. It also gives us an insight on how this influential and beloved filmmaker changed the way that movies were made, marketed and merchandised.
