Trivia:

Was present the day George Lucas began writing the first draft of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). Although he does not remember it, everyone present that day claims he came up with the infamous line "In a galaxy far, far away..." when Lucas asked how he should begin the script. See more »
