* OccidentalOtaku: A major eiga otaku, for many different classic film genres, including JidaiGeki. [[note]] Notably, ''Star Wars''' "Jedi" are named after the Jidaigeki genre, hence their Samurai-like portrayal[[/note]]

In high school, George was a car buff, and wanted to be a professional racer, until a near-fatal crash days before graduation; [=EMTs=] actually [[OnlyMostlyDead declared him dead at the scene]]. After recovering, he attended a community college and turned his passion to filmmaking.

George is infamous for his iron-fisted grip on the ''Star Wars'' franchise. This may be from Warner Bros.'s ExecutiveMeddling in ''THX-1138'' to cut it down and reduce its marketing budget. It may also stem from the disastrous ''Star Wars Holiday Special'' and also how in its original conception, nobody really understood Lucas re-imagination of the space opera genre and he felt overly protective to ensure that the Franchise didn't simply decay into another sci-fi serial. He is known these days for being a ScapegoatCreator in the eyes of his fans who, since the 90s, have blamed the perceived faults of the series on Lucas' failures. Among certain Star Wars fans, Lucas is considered a great producer who works best when he simply oversees his staff developing his general ideas with the likes of Creator/LawrenceKasdan doing script rewrites, but falters without a strong staff or excellent collaborators to make his ideas work.

Added DiffLines:

* InsultBackfire: The "Why would I make any more [''Star Wars'' movies]" example listed above? It was supposed to highlight all the grief the fandom had given him over the prequel trilogy, but let's just say it didn't go unnoticed when the general reaction to his statement was a resounding, "Good!"

* ProtectionFromEditors: Some people think that part of the reason why the Prequel Trilogy was flawed was that Lucas' production posse, unlike producer Gary Kurtz and co-writer Creator/LawrenceKasdan in the original trilogy, didn't have the nerve to tell their boss when he was on the wrong track artistically.

*** This comes again with ''The Force Awakens'', where he has had increasingly less kind words towards Disney and the direction they wanted to take. He goes from likening the premier as going to your ex-wife's wedding to calling Disney 'white slavers'.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Troll}}: Wanted to build a production studio on his ranch in Marin County, California, but his wealthy neighbors protested the development, claiming that it would ruin their views. Rather than fighting them, Lucas backed down... and began work on a low-income housing project on the property instead. Served as both a hilarious "screw you" to his neighbors and as a sweet PetTheDog moment, as affordable housing is a pressing issue in the Bay Area and Lucas pledged over $150 million of his own money to fund the project.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Well duh, but the most influence he had was with the first six movies and ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars.'' He does a little work with the general EU but isn't quite as involved as sometimes believed.
