A Star Wars fan posted a quote from George Lucas along with several photos from “A New Hope,” which was released in theaters on May 25, 1977 – just shy of 45 years! The quote read, “You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you.”

George Lucas is second only to Walt Disney imo when it comes to film making’s influence on American culture. Disney grew into an entertainment empire. Lucas created the single best film franchise in American culture. Every one loves Star Wars.

Thank the Lord for this man. https://t.co/s9JAQ54po2

Another fan paid “Birthday respects for George Lucas – Genius storyteller and visual effects innovator (ILM).” He posted it alongside a photo that read “The secret is not to give up hope. It’s very hard not to because if you’re really doing something worthwhile I think you will be pushed to the brink of hopelessness before you come through the other side.”

Another fan tweeted, “Happy Birthday George Lucas! Thank you for this wonderful galaxy that has inspired so many of us!”

Attached to the tweet was a foreword that Lucas had written for prominent Star Wars writer Alan Dean Foster and his 1993 book, “Splinter of the Mind’s Eye.”

Lucas wrote, “After Star Wars was released, it became apparent that my story, however many films it took to tell, was only one of thousands that could be told about the characters who inhabit its galaxy.”

“But these were not stories I was destined to tell,” he continued. “Instead, they would spring from the imagination of other writers, inspired by the glimpse of a galaxy that Star Wars provided.”

“Today, it is an amazing, if unexpected, legacy of Star Wars that so many gifted writers are contributing new stories to the Saga.”

Hopefully, there are still many more stories to tell in a galaxy far, far away!
