Theatre at the Mill’s Movies @ The Mill Season One presents
The Trial of George Walton Lucas Jr.
The CGI smash hit of 2010’s SXSW Festival sees a computer generated state of California put the creator of Star Wars on trial for his constant re-tweaking on the franchise and other crimes against cinema. The documentary was given unprecedented access to Lucas Films and the history of ‘The Force’ in order to put together a must see for any Jedi in training (or Princess of a destroyed planet).
Following Lucas’ trial we showcase the cases for the defence and prosecution.
For the prosecution
Since serving as executive producer for this Sci-Fi tale of a talking Duck who must save the world Lucas has disowned the film. Two things stand apparent during this film, 1. you can’t just ignore your mistakes and 2. the early warning signs of how terrible Jar Jar Binks was going to be were there.
For the defence
As co-creator and executive producer George Lucas is jointly responsible for bringing Henry Jones Jr. (
) to the big screen as he races against the clock and the Nazi’s in an effort to find the lost ark of the covenant. Starring Harrison Ford and Karen Allen. Indiana
After the screening there will be a chance to cast your vote in our audience jury and decide whether George Walton Lucas Jr. is guilty or innocent.
