By George is our three-episode series on the work of George Lucas, separated by themes and dotted with his history. In this episode, we’re tackling American Graffiti, THX 1138, Freiheit, 1:42:08, Look At Life, and how they relate to Star Wars. In part one, we cover the theme of adolescence. In part two, it’s all about the theme of freedom. Then, finally, in part three, we cover the concept of trauma and how George Lucas uses it to further his character’s journeys.
