Reception for The George Lucas Talk Show has been generally positive. Comic Book Resources writer Annalise Yip says it is "equal parts hilarious, weird and entertaining".

- Early years
- Life in Paris
George Aloysius Lucas was an American-born art dealer living in Paris in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
George A. Lucas, an art collector and agent for American patrons, was born in Baltimore in 1824 as the seventh son of Fielding Lucas Jr., who owned a publishing and stationery company. He attended United States Military Academy at West Point and after graduating in 1845, began working as a civil engineer on railroads in New Jersey. Lucas moved to New York in 1853 and began buying works for his Baltimore friends.
Following the death of his father and older brother, Lucas returned to Baltimore in 1856, only to move to Paris a year later. He lived there on an annuity from his father's estate and worked as an agent for art collectors and dealers in the United States such as Samuel Putnam Avery, John Taylor Johnston, Cyrus Lawrence, William Henry Vanderbilt, and Henry Field. He is perhaps most recognized for helping to build the collection of William Thompson Walters, for whom he purchased pieces by ...
Unlike most of his clients, Lucas had a modest lifestyle. He also paid for the apartment of his long-term mistress Josephine Marchand and her servants; however, their relationship was discreet according to the expert Lilian Randall, who translated and decoded Lucas' diary. Until the 1906 visit of his niece Bertha, Lucas had not seen any member of his family since becoming an expatriate, yet he remained in touch with his family and friends in America through correspondence. As he aged, he became
Lucas had a substantial collection, with a large number or prints by Eugène Delacroix, Édouard Manet, Mary Cassatt, and James Abbott McNeill Whistler. At his death, he owned 19,000 prints, 300 paintings, and 170 bronze sculptures. Two months before his death, Lucas bequeathed his art to Henry Walters with the understanding that it would ultimately go to the Maryland Institute for the Promotion of the Mechanic Arts, which had been destroyed in the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904. In 1933 ...

Interviewees include a variety of figures such as Neil Gaiman, MC Frontalot and Gary Kurtz. Lucas appears frequently in archival footage, but is never interviewed directly. The film discusses the extent to which the Star Wars franchise is an artistic creation of Lucas and subject to his vision versus a social phenomenon that belongs to the general public of fans and their participatory/remix culture. The film is dedicated to interviewee Jason Nicholl, a blogger at nukethefridge.com who died befo
Director Alexandre Philippe, a lifetime Star Wars fan from his early childhood, has said that the film was not meant to be one-sided against Lucas, although the title has often created that interpretation. He instead aimed at showing both sides evenhandedly to explore to what extent the Star Wars franchise is controlled by Lucas versus something morally held by the public. Philippe feels that Lucas is a relatively talented director and an "ideas man" based on the original Star Wars trilogy, THX
On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes the film has a rating of 72%, based on 25 reviews, with an average rating of 6.7/10. On Metacritic, the film has a score of 55 out of 100, based on 7 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".

Whereas normal criticism typically involves pragmatic engagement on the artistic merits of a work, Lucas bashing is characterised by a prejudicial stance often combined with...
A common theme throughout Lucas's works is escape. Lucas's films tend to emphasize visuals and plot. They often include chase scenes of some sort, and are often edited to move along at a fast pace. Lucas has a love of the past, and many of his works indicate this (American Graffiti, the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Radioland Murders, and Red Tales.) Additionally, his USC student films and THX 1138 were designed to be abstract and esoteric.
Lucas considers himself a \\"Trekkie\\" and has cited Star Trek as his inspiration for working with sci-fi. He also finds hypothetical \\"war\\" scenarios distasteful.In 1976, Lucas published a novelization of A New Hope, which was initially (like the film) titled just Star Wars. Although Lucas was credited as author of the book, it was later revealed that the book was actually ghostwritten by Alan Dean Foster, who would also write Splinter of the Mind's Eye, the first original Star Wars novel and, i...
