Did You Know?


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 »


George: I'm just beginning to think that space oats isn't the answer.
Marion: Well, maybe you weren't meant to write agricultural space tragedies.

Simply splendid!!!
21 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

Nothing more to say about this movie than how absolutely I adore people who come up with ideas like these.

To put young George Lucas into college and show his inspirations for all the famous Star Wars characters is such a simple idea that it is pure genius. I especially liked the Han Solo and Chewbacca inspiration - way cool!
