Lucasfilm Ltd. (LFL) is an American film production company founded by George Lucas in 1971, based in Marin County, California. Lucas is its current chairman, and Micheline Chau is its president/chief operating officer.

The company is best known for producing the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films, but it has produced other box office hits, including American Graffiti. It has also been a leader in developing new film technology in special effects, sound, and computer animation, and because of their expertise its subsidiaries often help produce non-Lucasfilm pictures. Lucasfilm is set to move away from films and more into TV, due to rising budgets.[2]

Organization of the companyEdit

Lucasfilm was reorganized to consolidate all the companies to be under Lucasfilm. Now, Lucasfilm is made up of seven divisions:

  • Lucasfilm - film and television production and promotion
