Like the famous opening shot of the very first Star Wars George Lucas A Life is sweeping humbling and instantly transports you into the world of the mad dreamer Fellow nerds unite Finally we get a book that examines the history of a titan who really changed our lives Beautifully obsessive and relishes every detail Just like us Brad MeltzerA sweeping perceptive biography This in depth portraitis never less than fascinating Masterful and engaging just what Lucas fans and buffs who love the nitty gritty of filmmaking have been waiting for Kirkus starred review Maestro biographer Jones tackles another brilliant entertainer The world knows George Lucas as the filmmaker who brought us Star Wars one of the most iconic Hollywood franchises in history but as Jones in depth fascinating and even gripping exploration reveals Lucas is much than a gifted storytellerJones digs deep to limn the highs and lows of Lucas career and life capturing his drive and innovation in crisp sparkling prose Masterful and essential for film and pop culture enthusiasts Booklist. Star Wars opened in the UK when I was 8 the absolute perfect age and it has remained a firm favourite of mine ever since and I ve been eually fascinated by George Lucas for most of that time too especially after reading Dale Pollock s excellent Skywalking This huge the hardback is 472 pages before the notes and references book takes Lucas up to 2016 and although the bulk of it is cut and paste there are a few original interviews mainly from people I haven t seen uoted in the past it s well presented and nicely written Making a point of Lucas liking for control and his disdain for the studios and their non creative executives it ties everything together well especially with the Disney deal My main reason for reading was to pick up the story after Skywalking but Lucas life up to Return Of The Jedi in 1983 is far exciting a read than afterwards though that latter period includes the building of Lucasfilm the divorce and the lean years I remember well as a Star Wars fan and Jones deals with it in a brisker fashion A good read certainly better than the Baxter cut and paste but the must read for me remains the authorised though since distanced from Skywalking a better book and focussing much deeper on a interesting timeline

The author clearly hasn t interviewed or possibly met George Lucas but if like me your a starwars nut then this is worth a read Shame it s put together with pass interviews snippets
