The filmmaker George Lucas made the fateful decision to pursue a longtime dream project – a space fantasy movie unlike any ever produced. Lucas envisioned a swashbuckling SF saga inspired by the Flash Gordon serials classic American westerns, the epic cinema of Japanese auteur Akira Kurosawa, and mythological heroes. Its original title – ‘The star wars’. The rest is history, and how it was made is a story as entertaining and exciting as the movie that has enthralled millions for thirty years – a story that has never been told as it was meant to be. Until now. Using his unprecedented access to the Lucasfilm Archives and its trove of never-before-published ‘lost’ interviews, photos, production notes, factoids, and anecdotes, Star Wars scholar J. W. Rinzler hurtles readers back in time for a one-of-a-kind behind-the-scenes look at the nearly decade-long quest of George Lucas and his key collaborators to make the ‘little’ movie that became a phenomenon. For the first time, it’s all here – the evolution of the now-classic story and characters – including ‘Annikin Starkiller’ and ‘a huge green-skinned monster with no nose and large gills’ named Han Solo; excerpts from George Lucas’s numerous, ever-morphing script drafts; the birth of Industrial Light & Magic, the special-effects company that revolutionized Hollywood filmmaking; the studio-hopping and budget battles that nearly scuttled the entire project; the director’s early casting saga, which might have led to a film spoken mostly in Japanese – including the intensive auditions that won the cast members their roles and made them legends; the grueling, nearly catastrophic location shoot in Tunisia and the subsequent breakneck dash at Elstree Studios in London; the who’s who of young film rebels who pitched in to help – including Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, and Brian DePalma.
