Star Wars - the creators
When one thinks of the mighty franchise that is Star Wars, the mind will almost always think of George Lucas. This is the man millions of fans have to thank for introducing us to the galaxy far, far away after all. What many fans don't know though, is he wasn't the only "Lucas" involved. There was another who helped him conceive his ultimate vision. Her name was Marcia Lucas, and she was his wife.
