You can't do it unless you can imagine it.
Website Purpose and Publisher Information
My name is Hayden. I go to Holman Middle School. I made this website because I had to do a Research Project on someone famous. I picked George Lucas as my subject because I wanted to learn more about his life other than making the Star Wars franchise and the Indiana Jones series.
Early life: Before the ideas
George Walton Lucas, Jr. was born on May 14, 1944 in Modesto, California. George has two sisters, Ann and Kathleen. He spent his childhood with comic books. He liked reading "Buck Rodgers" and "Flash Gordon." Another thing George loved was car racing. The thing that made him not like it that much was that he got in a car accident. The car accident had happened 3 days before George was going to graduate high school. He then went to the Southern University of Florida to study film. He got to go there because his grades were high enough.
Film Life before/the start of Star Wars
The first movie George released was THX-1138. George directed it but it didn't go that well. In the box office it supposivly (failed). He had lost the supporters he once had and knew he needed a big response. So he then released the movie American Graffiti. American Graffiti got the viewers and supporters of him to come back to give him confidence after THX-1138. After American Graffiti he wanted to create something out of this world that hasn't been done before. He thought of Star Wars. He wanted it to be amazing graphics with amazing SyFy objects that made the movie really stand out. So he made Lucasfilm Ltd., LucasArts, and more.
Georges accomplishments with Star Wars and more
After the first Star Wars movie he had made $513 million dollars. Also George Lucas broke the box-office record with the first movie of Star Wars. Then he shared some of his money with the people who helped him accomplish things in his younger age life. After some Star wars movies he created a new franchise with Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg, called Indiana Jones. He got divorced with Marcia Lucas. After that incident he adopted a girl named Amanda. Later in his life he got married again and then he got divorced again. After that he adopted two more children, Katie and Jett. Jett is the youngest and Amanda being the oldest. Due to these major films he has been awarded with many awards.
