Whether or not you've enjoyed Lucas's recent movies, his impact on movie making and the movie business is absolutely unparalled. Here's just a short list of achievements behind the camera and behind the scenes:

Wrote and directed American Graffiti, which was made for $770,000 and grossed over $115 million domestically. AG helped to finance Star Wars.

Wrote, directed and produced Star Wars.

Created ILM, which is the leader in special effects.

Created Droid, a film editing program in 1980. This was later sold to a couple of guys who renamed it Avid. Avid video editing and Pro Tools are the industry leaders in Film Post Production and Music creation and production, respectively.

Created Pixar. Sold it to Steve Jobs for $10 million.

Launched the film careers of Harrison Ford, Cindy Williams, Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, as well as directors Ron Howard, Joe Johnston and Steve Sommers, to name a few.

He recently donated $175 million to the USC film school, his alma mater.

I welcome his vision for television, especially considering the piracy issue that the film industry will soon be facing.
