If there’s someone who knows heroes, it’s George Lucas.  After all he created two of our most iconic film heroes: Luke Skywalker and Indiana Jones.  As well, he spent 20 years getting his real life heroes movie made, Red Tails.

So when Capt. Hank Hughes, a decorated platoon leader and veteran of two tours in Afghanistan needed help readjusting and getting back to his first love — he’d majored in films in college, George Lucas stepped up to the plate.  Says Lucas,

“These guys are heroes, and we need to help them”

And now, Xesh is about to meet someone who will change his life forever, a former great Je’daii . . . the prisoner of Bogan!
