Jp and Ron go back to 1971, a time when a young George Lucas was just starting his journey as a filmmaker. His first film THX 1138, based on a short film that he did as a student, is a futuristic dystopian tale of two people trying to break free from the Orwellian world in which they live. A cold and challenging film at the time, it has since been re-released and reassessed over the years, and now has become a cult classic. Many of the ideas and themes that Lucas has since explored in all his movies including Star Wars started with THX 1138. So strap in for a fun discussion as we look back at a future not so far away where Star Wars was just a twinkle in George Lucas’s eye.
