Whodunit? 10 Famous Ghostwriting Collaborations

George Lucas and Alan Dean Foster

The novelization of George Lucas’ space opera opus Star Wars isn’t a typically throwaway version of the big screen gem. Novelization Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (originally dubbed Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker) delves deeper into the mythical universe, containing scenes and info that didn’t make it into the 1977 classic film. Although the book was credited to director George Lucas, the real author is ghostwriter Alan Dean Foster who has contributed other works to the Star Wars novel series.
