George Lucas is the critically acclaimed director of THX 1138, as well as the producer of a myriad of independent films. In 1973, he directed and co-wrote American Graffiti, which won the Golden Globe and garnered five Academy Award® nominations. Four years later, Lucas’ Star Wars broke all box-office records and set new standards for sophistication in film visuals and sound. Lucas continued the Star Wars Saga as storywriter and executive producer with The Empire Strikes Back in 1980, followed by Return of the Jedi in 1983. He returned to directing in 1999 with Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, the first major live-action film to be projected digitally. Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones broke new ground as the first major movie shot using entirely digital media. Lucas is the creator of the classic Indiana Jones character, and co-wrote and executive-produced Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade—the trilogy based on Jones that won eight Academy Awards. He is the founder and chairman of The George Lucas Educational Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving the K-12 learning process by documenting, disseminating and advocating for innovative, replicable and evidence-based strategies that prepare students to thrive in their future education, careers and adult lives.
