1967 film student George Lucas has writer's block trying to finish his "Space Wheat" script, until a beautiful fellow student with a familiar hairstyle teaches him that the best stories are in plain sight.
Think of this as "Austin Powers:Episode One" A nine minute spoof of Notting hill and Austin Powers. Set six years before the events of the original Austin Powers. Mr. Evil, younger, not yet... See full summary »

In 1967, writer's-blocked USC film student George Lucas has only three days to finish his script or he won't graduate. He ends up falling for a girl named Marian (with her hair done up in buns on the sides of her head) who encourages him to write what he knows and feels. Written by

This short implies that George Lucas got the inspiration of the Howard the Duck movie from a pet duck named Howard. This is false as Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik were the actual creators of the Howard the Duck comic. George Lucas only served as a producer for the movie adaption and had no involvement with the creation of the character. See more »
My script is now complete. Soon I will rule the industry, and you'll still be writing line one of whatever it's called.

A Long Time Ago, In A College Campus Far Far Away. . .
The origin of Star Wars can finally be revealed in George Lucas In Love a brilliant short-film which gives the true story behind the writing of the classic movie.
This is another well-known spoof of Star Wars & is a brilliant comedy about how it all began. Taking his inspiration from his colleagues, teachers & a woman with a familiar hairstyle a young film student by the name of George Lucas endeavours to write a sci-fi screenplay.
Although short in length this film isn't short in laughs as there are numerous jokes about the films we know so well. Many of these are visual gags but some incidents also mirror events in A New Hope. This film never fails to hit the mark taking inspiration from not only Star Wars but the Oscar winning Shakespeare In Love.
Like Troops this feature defies its low-budget constraints to give a very professional feel. The acting is good especially from Martin Hynes & the film even imitates the style of Star Wars with similar wipes & cuts. Every Star Wars fan should beg, borrow or steal a copy of this film as you can't afford to miss it!
