Director George Lucas has been compared to inventor Thomas Edison

According to SciFi Wire, “Alice in Wonderland” producer Richard D. Zanuk believes, that the “Star Wars” filmmaker is as reverential as the man who invented the lightbulb.

“He is the only person, with the exception of Sam Goldwyn, who literally put his own money in,” said Zanuck.

“Sam financed and owned 100% of all those great pictures he made, and no one else has ever done that, not like he did. George put it back into ILM & Skywalker Ranch & THX sound.”

He added: “[Lucas ] put it into the greatest equipment, all of it up to date… He is the only one who ever gave back to the industry in terms of the technology investment. And I guess James Cameron, now, but that´s on a different scale. He´s really been an innovator like nobody else. He is the Thomas Edison of our time.”
