I am Princess Leia! | 4

Casting begins for Star Wars. Carrie Fisher wins a role, runs into the rain, and shouts to the heavens: ?I am Princess Leia!? George Lucas doesn?t want Harrison Ford in the cast, but it just so happens Harrison's building a door all week and is in the right place at the right time. Mark Hamill awakens on Robert Englund?s couch just in time to find out about ?the perfect role? for him - with dialogue that is absolutely befuddling. The men inside R2D2 and C3PO come to terms with the extraordinary discomfort of their costumes - and their dislike for each other. Alec Guinness hates science fiction ?fairy-tale rubbish? and considers Lucas to be ?a touch boring.? Meanwhile Lucas is plowing his own money into Star Wars and still has no green light from Fox. That?s when he faces a choice: Either make the movie for half of what he needs or Star Wars will be shut down.

Bleeding on the Page | 3

Francis Coppola urges a struggling and dirt poor George Lucas to write something human and stop being ?so weird.? The result is American Graffiti, the classic coming of age movie. United Artists agrees to pick up the project along with one other idea, something vague about wars in space. But the deal falls apart in part because ?nobody knows what American Graffiti means.? Universal comes to the rescue but retains final cut. The screenings are great, but Universal is convinced it will be a disaster, so they cut the film - because they can. A resentful and hungry Lucas scribbles a two-page treatment for something called ?The Star Wars.? Everyone in town rejects the project, except for Fox exec Alan Ladd Jr, who buys the idea for a paltry sum and offers a thin vote of confidence for George Lucas. Then, American Graffiti is released and becomes a hit. Lucas renegotiates not for more money but for sequel and merchandising rights, both worthless at the time. Now he spends every day for the next three years writing the script. Grueling days. Bleeding on the page. Pulling teeth would be easier and more pleasant. We meet Lucas?s dog, an Alaskan malamute named ?Indiana? who inspires a certain Wookiee named ?Chewbacca.? We discover the inspiration for ?R2D2.? Meanwhile, it?s clear that Fox is dragging their feet - that many at the studio wish Star Wars would simply?go away.

Dreams of Star Wars | 2

A young Carrie Fisher meets the paparazzi in the arms of her celebrity mother, Debbie Reynolds. It doesn?t take Carrie long to decide that acting?s not for her. So naturally, an actor is exactly what she becomes. Carrie models tops for Warren Beatty - with and without a bra. Meanwhile, George Lucas has decided to study film. Even though no film school graduate had ever gotten a job in the industry. He quickly becomes a star at USC, determined to make his movies his way, no matter what the rules are. He works day and night on a diet of coffee and chocolate bars. He graduates just as movie attendance is cratering and Hollywood is shutting down. He meets another young cinematic firebrand, Francis Coppola, and they join forces on his first movie, THX1138. Warner Brothers hates the movie and takes it back to cut it themselves. It limps into theaters where one young film buff is left awestruck. His name is Steven Spielberg. Meanwhile Lucas dreams of a movie with heroes and villains, ray guns and spaceships, thrills and adventure beyond the stars.

Two Suns Setting | 1

A torturous first day of shooting Star Wars in the Tunisian desert. Including a one-time ?carpenter to the stars,? an actor named Harrison Ford. Cut to: A young George Lucas captivated and thrilled by a new gadget called ?television? and the thrilling, swashbuckling serials of Flash Gordon. Later, Lucas falls for fast cars. More speeding tickets than baseball cards. Fights at home with his father over work and school and career. ?I?m gonna be a millionaire before I?m 30,? he shouts at his dad. But he?s failing classes and his best hopes are for a life as an auto mechanic. Then, one fateful day he?s in his tiny Fiat turning left across traffic. That?s when a car smashes into him - an accident that nearly kills him. And an experience that will change his life forever.
