Happy Star Wars Day!
Despite its currently popularity, did you know that George Lucas had a difficult time convincing a movie studio to invest in his idea of ‘Star Wars’? In his early draft, ‘Luke’ was an old general, ‘Han Solo’ was a frog-like alien, and the ‘Skywalker’ family was named ‘Starkiller’ instead. It took George Lucas 3 years of improving drafts and reorganizing ideas. His fourth and final draft is the story of Star Wars we all know and love today.
“May the 4th be with you” at school. Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
Both United Artists and Universal Studios turned George Lucas down. 20th Century Fox was the third studio, which finally agreed to give George Lucas a little money to develop his idea.
