On this day in 1944 George Walton Lucas Jr. was born in Modesto, California and to put not too fine a point on it, he changed the world as we know it. To list his achievements in bullet point form would be impressive no doubt, but would also take away the magic of his creations; Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Willow, ILM, Skywalker Sound, Lucasfilm, the pillars of our daily fandom and the source of endless hours – decades – of entertainment.

To celebrate, the Fantha Tracks team send their best wishes to the Maker on his big day.

Johanna Nybelius

Happy Birthday! You are definitely one of the most visionary film makers ever. For a lot of people doing Star Wars would be the single thing in their life, but George Lucas didn’t stop there instead he created Indiana Jones as well. His ideas have grown in ways that I don’t think he could ever have managed, and it has touched so many lives. Thinking about all the friendship that have their foundation in the love for the creations of George Lucas there is only one thing to say on a day like this. “Thank the maker!”

Richard Hutchinson

Happy Birthday George. George is one of those people whom it is easy to criticise. He could have, should have… and when he stepped away, many fans thought his time was long overdue. It is only when he is gone that you truly realise what he brought to the franchise, as the creator, visionary and world builder he has no equal in modern day story telling. Others have tried and failed to hit his lofty heights. George has changed the lives of so many people in this day of disposable entertainment and for that we are truly thankful.

Happy Birthday Mr Lucas. Over the years you have brought to cinema some of its true masterpieces in American Graffiti, Indiana Jones, and of course Star Wars. They have given us moments of joy and sadness. Laughter and tears. They have impacted upon our lives in a whole manner of incredible ways. Through your creations you have allowed us to find fond friends and loved ones. Your creativity has been a true gift to the world. On this your 76th Birthday, may I wish you all the happiness and joy you have brought to so many of us.

Happy birthday to the Maker, for bringing us the best films and fans around the world.

Greig Robertson

Happy Birthday GL! Writing this as I will unlikely have the chance to say this in person and if I did I probably wouldn’t be able to get the words out (Just like when I met Fav). Thankyouverymuch for creating Star Wars, which has been such an inspiration for me and a positive force in my life.

From the early days of seeing the movies for the first time, playing with the toys in my garden through to current day where I have the honour of singing songs based on your characters to fans around the world, none of it would be possible without your genius. I have the extra pleasure of sharing the Wars with my three boys!

Hope you have a HOT DANG Happy Birthday and here’s to many more! MTFBWY

A famous quote goes along the lines of this: “Give me a child until he is seven and I’ll show you the man”.

I was seven years old when Star Wars was released in the UK. To say that George Lucas has influenced my almost 50 years on this green and blue globe is an understatement.

George gave me the greatest two words – Star Wars. I reciprocate with same said quantity – Thank You.

Becca Benjamin

Happy Life Day to the Maker! Thank you so much for gifting us with stories from a galaxy far, far away full of adventure, hope, love, and self-discovery through the power of newfound family. Bless you, sir and may the Force be with us. Always.
