Personal Quote:

[About the origin of "Chewbacca"] There was a dog in American Graffiti (1973), but I didn't use "Indiana" for the part because it was a night scene and I wanted a white dog. My wife was very upset that I didn't put my own dog in the movie; so I said I'd put Indiana's spirit in the next one. And that's how the "Wookiee" came into being. See more »

Trivia:

During pre-production of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), George created a phony working title - not for fan purposes, but to save money. Vendors and service providers, upon getting wind of the next Star Wars picture, were doubling their prices. See more »

Trademark:

Stunning visual effects sequences, provided by Lucas's own special effects company, ILM (Industrial Light & Magic). See more »

Star Sign:

Taurus
