Goofs

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 »

Quotes

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.

Great...despite its short running time.
30 July 2003 | by Boba_Fett1138See all my reviews

This little film was way better then I had expected. Everything about it was done very professional, not only the acting but also the cinematography and the music.

The film tells in a comical and fictional way how George Lucas got his inspiration for the greatest movie saga of all time: Star Wars. The way the story is told is excellent and done in a good quick pace. Maybe a little bit too quick because the film is over before you know it. I think I would have even liked the film better if it was longer and showed more how Lucas got his inspiration.

Even people who are not Die-hard Star Wars fans will understand most of the jokes and references to certain characters in the film that resemble characters that are from the first Star Wars trilogy.

A great very original short comedy!

8/10
