Even after reading this article, I finally had chance to watch bonus material version DVD from Star Wars Trilogy. (It comes with Episode IV, V & VI) I was amazed how difficult it is to build one of the greatest movies in 1977 when technology is very limited.

If you get chance to look at “How Star Wars changed the World,” picture (based from Wired magazine) – you will see all well-known name, video games, movies, all stuff since Star Wars movie begins. Take a look – click here to view.

I remember that my classmate and I went to theatre and watch this movie. After that, I fell in love with it even there’s no captions back then. I started collecting Star Wars figures, posters, trading cards, bed spreads, curtain, light saber, PJ, t-shirts, etc. Too bad, I don’t have any of these anymore after my parent had ugly custody battle and my mother sold them all at pawn shop.

Anyway, check out two good articles from Wired.com about George Lucas and his business.
