Spielberg and lucas

It is a well-known fact that Steven Spielberg is a huge Star Wars fan.  In fact Spielberg has been a fan right from the beginning.  Before the beginning in fact.  When Lucas showed an early cut of Star Wars to a test audience which included several directors it was only Spielberg who loved it and could see pass the incomplete special effects at the time.
Spielberg could see huge potential in Star Wars and his friendship with the director, George Lucas proved to be an asset to Star Wars in general.  The Jaws director often slipped in Star Wars references into his movies and even assisted George in the creation process of Star Wars.
We have to thank Spielberg for the Star Wars soundtrack composed by John Williams we all love and enjoy.  It was Spielberg who recommended John Williams to George Lucas after working with him on the shark chasing movie, Jaws.  For that alone Star Wars fans including myself are eternally grateful.
While making Revenge of the Sith, George Lucas asked Steven to “play” with the Mustafar duel and also the Yoda duel during the animatic stage.  No one knows for sure how much input Spielberg actually had on these scenes but his name is credited in the end credits as Assistant Director so it must have been quite a bit.
Read the rest of my article over on the Coffee With Kenobi website where I mention other Star Wars references in Spielberg's movies including Indiana Jones, E.T. and Poltergeist.
