THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS Gets a New Poster…Trailer Still Hits Hard

George Lucas is to some, a God.  To others, he is the Devil.  And that is exactly the concept of the soon to be released THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS.

The new documentary has been seen in film festivals around the world, and now has a brand new poster and trailer, hitting on notes that I think any fan of either STAR WARS or consumerism has pondered once or twice.

The synopsis is as follows:

“The passion the original Star Wars trilogy inspires in its fans is unparalleled; but when it comes to George Lucas himself, many have found their ardor has cooled into a complicated love-hate relationship. This hilarious, heartfelt documentary delves deep into Lucas’s cultural legacy, asking all the tough questions. Has Lucas betrayed his masterwork? Should he just have left the original trilogy alone? Is The Phantom Menace so bad it should carry a health warning? Utilizing interviews taken from over 600 hours of footage, and peppered with extraordinary Star Wars and Indiana Jones recreations lovingly immortalized in song, needlepoint, Lego, claymation, puppets and paper-mâché, above all this film asks the question: who truly owns that galaxy far, far away—the man who created it, or the fans who worship it?”

Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think is the truth…George Lucas as a master, misunderstood filmmaker, or as a money hungry profiteer?
