Who is George Lucas? Well, if the trailer for new documentary The People Vs. George Lucas, he's a little devil and an evil marketing genius. But surely there's more to the man that that?

The documentary, to be released next year, aims to investigate the tortured, contradictory feelings Star Wars fans have for Lucas in light of the prequel trilogy and subsequent spin-offs from the movies, using the power of the internet:

Paying tribute to the YouTube culture in unprecedented fashion, this groundbreaking documentary feature will utilize professional hi-definition footage and amateur homemade videos in equal amounts to craft one of the most original, entertaining, cinematic, and widely anticipated portraits in the history of the medium-the world's first digitally democratic documentary. Chock-full of impassioned interviews, powerful musical performances, never-before-seen polaroids from the original STAR WARS continuity script, stop-motion and 3D animation, Super 8 action figure films, puppet rants and many other surprises, THE PEOPLE vs. GEORGE LUCAS is slated for release in the Spring of 2010 at a theater not too far, far away from you..
