In a ceremony at the D23 Expo earlier today, George Lucas had the distinct honor of becoming a Disney Legend. Lucas has had a long working relationship with Disney — and he is a life-long fan — so it was only fitting that he receive recognition for his collaborations and accomplishments.
After being introduced by Disney CEO Bob Iger, and joined onstage by C-3PO and R2-D2, Lucas gave gracious acceptance speech — which you can see in the video below:
Lucas has also been immortalized as an emoji in the new Star Wars app!

Congratulations Mr. Lucas, and thank you for all the years of joy! May the Force be with you…. Always!
