For those of you geeks out there looking to get your Star Wars fix for the day, here's a great documentary called The Mythology of Star Wars that you can watch right now in its entirety. The doc includes commentary by George Lucas as he talks about the mythology behind the Star Wars universe. There's actually some really interesting stuff discussed in this video so I think it's worth watching.
Here's the Synopsis:
Bill Moyers joined George Lucas at Skywalker Ranch in northern California to talk about the ancient myths and personal values that have synthesized into Star Wars. The epic themes in Lucas' cinematic stories are a springboard for a candid conversation about family, fatherhood, spiritual beliefs, and the importance of moral tales for every generation. Intercut with movie footage from the original trilogy as well as the prequel, The Mythology of Star Wars with George Lucas and Bill Moyers provides a revealing journey in the company of the filmmaker through some of the most famous scenes of the Star Wars saga.
