Does George mean anything to you? The People vs George Lucas is a documentary that delves into the impassioned feelings and opinions expressed by fans and foes of legendary screen icon George Lucas, and the many debates surrounding his legacy. The film will use a courtroom debate approach combined with fan films related to Lucas to make this the "world's first digitally democratic feature documentary." Although this teaser only shows just talking heads, it looks good and I'm already interested. It's rare I get seriously interested in a documentary but this is one that has me hooked, maybe because I'm a Star Wars fan?

The People vs George Lucas is a documentary on George Lucas being directed by documentary filmmaker Alexandre O. Philippe, of Chick Flick: The Miracle Mike Story and Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water previously. The film is being produced by Exhibit A Pictures and Quark Films, but doesn't have a US distributor yet. This is a very early teaser trailer, but it's likely that The People vs George Lucas will show at film festivals in the near future, including Toronto, Sundance, or SXSW. Stay tuned for more soon!
