George Lucas Explains The Meaning Behind Star Wars [Video]

Star Wars fans will dig this: Charlie Rose had the opportunity to interview George Lucas last week, and George took a bit of time to chat about the “meaning” behind the Star Wars universe.

Sure, some of us (including myself) may have a few issues with how George handled the prequels, but when you hear him talking about the ideas that drove his overall inspiration for the original Star Wars movies–themes related to mythic storytelling, religion and mortality–you get a better understanding of why those first movies were so magnificent and influential.

Watch the video after the break…
