George Lucas Talks Fantasy Cinema in
TCM's Latest A Night at the Movies Documentary

One-Hour Special to Explore Fantasy Films that Inspired Lucas' Career

As excitement continues to build over the new trilogy in the Star Wars franchise, the man who created it – George Lucas – is going to take Turner Classic Movies (TCM) viewers on a ride through some of the movies that have sparked his imagination and inspired his career. This November, Lucas will talk extensively about his fantasy favorites in the one-hour special TCM Presents A Night at the Movies: George Lucas & The World of Fantasy Cinema, the latest in the network's ongoing series of genre documentaries. Produced by Amblin Television and award-winning filmmaker and author Laurent Bouzereau, the one-hour special will premiere Tuesday, Nov. 25, at 8 p.m. (ET).



George Lucas & The World of Fantasy Cinema will kick off a 24-hour salute to fantasy movies, with such memorable films as The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947), The Thief of Bagdad (1940), The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao (1964) and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958). A complete schedule is included below. Each of these films represents the power of cinema to transport us into a world of dreams.



TCM launched the A Night at the Movies franchise in October 2009 with A Night at the Movies: The Suspenseful World of Thrillers. Subsequent specials have focused on movie epics, horror films and holiday classics. TCM's A Night at the Movies documentary specials are executive-produced by Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey (TNT's Falling Skies).



TCM recently released its first volume of original specials from A Night at the Movies on home video. Sold exclusively through TCM's online store – shop.tcm.com – TCM Originals: A Night at the Movies, Vol. 1 includes four memorable specials: The Suspenseful World of Thrillers (2009), The Gigantic World of Epics (2009), Merry Christmas! (2011) and The Horrors of Steven King (2011).



Laurent Bouzereau, who writes, produces and directs TCM's A Night at the Movies specials, is an award-winning filmmaker and author. Bouzereau has created many documentaries on the making of films and on some of the world's most acclaimed filmmakers, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Peter Bogdanovich, Brian De Palma, William Friedkin, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lean, and many others. Bouzereau directed Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir and the TCM original documentary Don't Say No Until I Finish Talking: The Story of Richard D. Zanuck.
