A spin-off of the Arts & Entertainment network's bio of George Lucas, this brisk little-guy-makes-it-big story will thrill kids (and adults who remember their own tough starts). It takes the legendary filmmaker from his days as a small, picked-on kid to his days as one of the biggest writers/directors/producers in Hollywood. Lucas became a millionaire before he was 30 (as he promised his parents he would), The biography also examines the storytelling techniques and revolutionary technology that made STAR WARS and its sequels and prequels so successful. Narrator Robert Abia follows Lucas's ups and downs in a matter-of-fact, easy-to-understand reading that sounds like a voice-over for A&E's "Biography" series--but shorter and faster, just the way Lucas likes it.
