35 years ago, George Lucas released his brain child to the world—Star Wars. From a movie that executives thought would flop (so much so that Lucas retained all merchandise rights AND got them to remove the credits from the beginning of the movie) to a multi-billion dollar franchise that is still alive and well today, it’s a one-of-a-kind story.
For all the shit we give him, I can’t thank him enough. Because even though it happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, it told us to reach for the stars and never give up hope.
Vor entye, George Lucas. And May the Force Be With You.
