Prophets of Science Fiction ~ George Lucas

Today on Far Future Horizons,  in breathless anticipation for the upcoming  Los Angeles premiere on December 14th, 2015 of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we present another exciting installment of the acclaimed documentary the Prophets of Science Fiction.

This episode focuses on the life and work of the film director and producer George Lucas.

From Luke Skywalker's light sabre to Darth Vader's Death Star, the Star Wars franchise is one of the defining science fiction works of the later 20th century. George Lucas' prolific imagination has already inspired two generations of scientists and engineers to push the envelope of technology. By introducing computers into the filmmaking process, he changed the way movies are made, and the way we all see the future.

Prophets of Science Fiction is hosted by Executive Producer Ridley Scott.

A very good review by Janice Kay concerning this episode of Prophets of Science Fiction: George Lucas appeared in Science Fiction.Com.
