GEORGE LUCAS' LOVE for Disney goes way back. I don't know how this went unnoticed for so long, but Lucas slipped an homage to Disney into the "Star Wars" movie "The Empire Strikes Back" . . . which came out 33 year's ago. I worked for the Mouse myself and I can tell you that there are hidden Mickeys within the park rides in Orlando.
