Description: Cast, crew and experts detail the secret histories of the most iconic film and television series in Icons Unearthed. A look at the most famous galaxy far, far away and will spend six hours exploring the Star Wars films from Episode I to VI. The first hour of the series, which was what I previewed, looks to the origins of the franchise, the film that is now known as “A New Hope.”

Although the film turned out to be a financial blockbuster, Lucas was rejected by two studios before 20th Century Fox finally greenlit it. And even though Fox’s Alan Ladd, Jr. approved it, he had no idea what Lucas’ “space opera” was really about. The docu-series “Icons Unearthed: Star Wars” takes a deep dive into the franchise Lucas created. It boasts the first on-camera interview with Lucas’ ex-wife and film editor Marcia Lucas.

    A fantastic look behind the scenes at one of the greatest film epic ever! Very interesting to see how George Lucas’s wife is lionized for not only her editing skills but also her prioritizing story and character development over special effects. I couldn’t agree more. In the later episodes of the doc people are giving Lucas credit for being the first director to go all digital. Well that’s great, but if there’s no story what’s the point? That’s why today’s movies are so utterly forgettable. Every director is trying to outdo the other in terms of special effects, when more attention needs to be paid to the story. A fantastic addition to the library of any Star Wars fan. Or any fan of great documentaries. And oh yeah, the sound and video quality is outstanding, ALL COMMERCIALS have been removed, can’t even tell they were there. This is why I keep coming back to MVR. Their love of for the content of the products and attention to detail is unmatched. Highly recommend.

    This documentary series of the Star Wars films is riveting! I had read a bit about Marcia Lucas but nothing to this extent. How I wish she had been available for the prequels. George gave us the gift of a new galaxy, never before seen. Now I know Marcia gave it a heart. It was wonderful to see the background history, especially for the original Star Wars (New Hope). In 1977 my husband and I went to the theater 7 times that summer, sitting front row center, leaning back as the Imperial Star Destroyer slowly soared overhead. We went crazy along with the rest of the audience. For those who were there, but especially for the following generations who weren’t, buy this series, Icons Unearthed: Star Wars! It will give you that sense of amazement for an iconic film that changed the movie industry. Nothing had ever been seen like it before. This documentary series is well-done as is the quality of the actual DVDs which all played perfectly. When I first saw this series, I really didn’t think I would get the chance to own it. So glad I found MVR’s site. Thank you so much for making this splendid series available! The Force is with you.
