Didn't George Lucas do Lord of the Rings back in 1977?

I'm no fan of Lucas, but some people seem to have confused him with Uwe Boll.

Wow, the insufferable voice saying "Imagine if George Lucas did Lord of the Rings" was enough to get me to stop. It might be clever from there, but no thanks.

It was Ralph Bakshi. But Anthony Daniels did the voice of Legolas so that may be the source of your confusion.

That was a joke referring to the fact that some people claim that Star Wars is a rip off of Lord of the Rings due to the number of similarities between them.

Ah, missed the joke, probably because I'd never heard that!

Some friends of mine did a Star Wars/LOTR mashup skit for a convention masquerade several years back. It was shorter and more amusing...
