List RulesVote for your favorite movies that was either produced, directed, or written by George Lucas.

A list of the best George Lucas movies, ranked from best to worst. George Lucas's highest grossing movies have received a lot of accolades over the years, earning millions upon millions around the world. This list included many universally loved films. Some films, like tiles from great franchises like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, have always been thought of as George Lucas projects. But Lucas's involvement in other classic movies, like Willow and Labyrinth, may be a surprise.

The order of these top George Lucas movies is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated George Lucas movies will be at the top of the list. George Lucas has produced, directed, and written a lot of films, so people often debate each other over what the greatest George Lucas movie of all time is. If you and a friend are arguing about this then use this list of the most entertaining George Lucas films to end the squabble once and for all.

If you think the best George Lucas film isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become number one. The greatest George Lucas performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand.

"This list answers the questions, "What are the best George Lucas movies?" and "What are the greatest George Lucas roles of all time?"
