Om forfatteren

George Walton Lucas, Jr. (born May 14, 1944) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, and entrepreneur. He founded Lucasfilm and led the company as chairman and chief executive before selling it to The Walt Disney Company on October 30, 2012. As a graduate of the prestigious Cinema vis mere Studies program of the University of Southern California, George Lucas represents the movie-educated generation of American filmmakers, which emerged in the 1970's, including Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, and Brian DePalma. Lucas's award-winning 20-minute student science fiction film, "THX-1138," and a student fellowship to work with Coppola, launched a career of unprecedented financial success. Backed by Coppola, he made a feature-length version of "THX-1138" (1971), then gained wide recognition with the release of "American Graffiti" (1973), a look at high school in 1962 whose rock-and-roll soundtrack set off a wave of 1950's nostalgia. Made for $750,000, "American Graffiti" grossed nearly $50 million. However, Lucas's "Star Wars" (1977) broke all box-office records and defined the basic terms of Lucas's legacy: Spectacular technical effects and a comic-book sense of adventure. Lucas wrote the scenarios for the "Star Wars" sequels, "The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) and "Return of the Jedi" (1983), and later for the "Indiana Jones" films, but he handed over directing to others. The American Film Institute awarded Lucas its Life Achievement Award on June 9, 2005. He has been nominated for four Academy Awards: Best Directing and Writing for American Graffiti, and Best Directing and Writing for Star Wars. He received the Academy's Irving G. Thalberg Award in 1991. The Discovery Channel named him one of the 100 "Greatest Americans" in September 2008. In July 2013, Lucas was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama for his contributions to American cinema. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

"I find this lack of faith disturbing."

This movie novelization has nothing extra to add to the galaxy. It has little add ons or something extra in the pages.

The characters felt a little two-dimensional. No extra thought process or emotions added. I felt this was a replica of the movie even though it wasn't word for word but . . . Scene for scene.

After reading the prequel trilogy, there are small plot holes that can be explained rationally, like how Artoo is a new model and Owen wanted Anakin to mind farming.

I don't know how Lord Vader managed to drink from a cup, but I will try and figure it out later. (Or never).

To me, this novel is a collection piece :) The writing wasn't spectacular, but it will remain a classic because this is where everything started.

The classic that birthed a universe.

It’s fun to go back and read the original script. While the meat of the story remains what we know from the movie a few early differences stand out.

So much better many years ago. Now the dialog seems just dumb. The special effects, particularly the alien creatures, is unsurpassed.
