George Lucas Exclusive to the Onion:

"The Events in Star Wars Actually Happened to Me."

Illustration for article titled George Lucas Exclusive to the Onion:

"But 'escapist fantasy'? How can people say that? Do they have any idea what I went through? Hanging upside-down in that ice cave on Hoth was one of the worst nights of my life. It’s still very hard for me to deal with, which is a big part of why I needed to process these life experiences through filmmaking. It’s all very emotional. My wife and kids get a little upset and start crying when I talk about this stuff. But I think it’s good to really explore and confront your past, as I did in Star Wars."
