At the end of the last episode of Legends of Tomorrow we saw that Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) was a director in 1967 Los Angeles. EW have the news that a younger version of George Lucas will appear in the next episode on 24th January.

Matt Angel (Sweet/Vicious, Grimm) is set to play Lucas in the episode called Raiders of the Lost Art.

“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim. “As a result, he never makes Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark. As a result, Ray, who became an engineer because of Star Wars, and Nate, who became a historian because of Raiders, slowly start to lose their brilliance, because those things that inspired them to become who they are didn’t exist.”

Describing the story as “Flowers for Algernon with Ray and Nate,” Guggenheim says the episode is one of the most ambitious that Legends of Tomorrow has done. “We were watching a cut of it, and I said to Greg [Berlanti] that 209 is either going to be the episode where we’ll say that the show found a new gear in terms of how zany it can be, or it’s the episode that’s going to get us all fired. It really is. You’re laughing out loud, I think with it, but it’s like, ‘Are we really doing this?’ It’s the ’70s bar fight on steroids. The whole episode is that level of crazy.”

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
