This just in:"If the words Star Wars make you want to speak up, we want to hear from you! Did the new trilogy leave a sour taste in your mouth? Whatís your stance on the Special Editions? Are you ready to stand up for George, or to stand up to him?
The People vs. George Lucas (www.peoplevsgeorge.com) is not only the first truly democratic feature film in history; itís also a unique opportunity for the millions of opinionated Star Wars supporters and detractors everywhere to speak up about the franchise and its creator, George Lucas.
Slated for release in 2009, The People vs. George Lucas is a new kind of Star Wars fan film, and weíd like to encourage you to participate in the making of this exciting new documentary. This film is about empowering the fans. Itís about telling George what we love and hate about Star Wars. Itís about expressing what this franchise means to us, what we wish had been handled differently, and what our hopes for the future are. Above all, itís a celebration of what binds us, the fans, together.
