George Lucas in Love (1999)

Ever wonder how George Lucas dreamed up Star Wars?

Well, I’m reasonably sure that this film doesn’t have the answer, but what we have instead is a wonderfully witty little short which dares to present its own warped vision of George’s attempts to write the original Star Wars script back in 1967, mixed with his romance with the girl with the familiar hairstyle – and a lot of knowing winks at the original trilogy of films.

Even better, it leaves us with a stunning and unexpected (if somewhat familiar) ending – and a last, post-credits snippet that hints at the less glamorous moments in George’s career.

Truly marvelous.  And all packed into seven minutes.

So stop making excuses and watch it!
