In the movie “Star Wars Episode Four: A New Hope”, the film George Lucas uses the archetypes the hero, the mentor, and the tyrant to convey the theme that we as humans grow and change as people because of possible people or events that occur throughout our lives. How this is shown is throughout the movie and through the main stars of the film that are well know as Luke Skywalker and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. In the film we see important events that perceive the change in the characters.

Conventionally, in hero movies, women are portrayed as weak, and vulnerable figures, waiting for the the man to come to their rescue. On the contrary, in Star Wars Vll, The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams, a female is put in the spotlight. The movie presents a social justice topic of gender equality. Being the hero throughout the film, the leading lady Rey, is an independent woman who has been living on her own, and providing for herself since she was young. She can actually trade the droid for plenty of money; however, she decides to stand out for justice and protects the droid all the time. Obviously, she is a woman full of integrity.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been a huge success since it hit theaters December 18, 2015. According to Times Magazine, “the seventh installment in the space saga became the highest grossing film in North America”. Star Wars: The Force Awakens may have some mixed reviews, but no one can deny the numbers. The seventh film made the most out of all of the films, but it may just be due to the already massive fan base. When Disney gained the rights to Star Wars, fans of the universe had mixed feelings. Some Star Wars enthusiasts were even worried that Disney would ruin what George Lucas created. To say the least, the majority of fans were not disappointed with the newest installment in this massively popular science fiction franchise.
Toy manufacturers are promoting gender-biased by producing and selling more toys that are male, if they are biased towards them or if they are biased towards females then they would make, and sell more toys that are female. I believe all of the action figures in the Star Wars Monopoly are male. Also the action figures found on store shelves are male too, which can show that the Star Wars producers are clearly biased towards the men. But this time it is not really because they are biased towards male toys, but it is because they do not want to show that Rey plays a large role in the long awaited movie. Not only does she play a huge role, but she is the main protagonist in the movie, so the producers want that to stay a secret. However, there
The Star Wars Trilogy always have one thing that is stated: the Force. The Force is an unlimited power that is in every living objects. As exciting as that sounds, the idea of the Force has been created out of many religions. The idea of the Force came from different religion such as: Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity
The choice is theirs to cut off their leg and shoot a man or die. They chose not to die even though the consequence means someone else's demise. This is the premise for every saw movie made life and death decisions on a whim. All movies have this same dilemma or set of choices, maybe not as violent but still decisions need to be made. A man with a thousand faces a book to describe this phenomenon of movie magic and all storyline progression. The themes are simple as Joseph Campbell describes in the book pointing out that every story has a repetitious style stolen throughout history. Every motion and step already taken a hundred times before. Of course, this gets old after a while so the scenery changes with the people, but the steps are still
The much-anticipated title of the Star Wars movie Episode VIII has been finally revealed. It will be called “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and ever since the name came to the fore, fans have gone into the debate mode, speculating about the meaning of the title while character-related theories keep floating around.
Topic: The speech that I had the opportunity to observe was called “The Big Questions of the Force Awakens,” which was given by David Johnson. The speech talked about some of the major questions and criticisms left by the movie as well as some philosophical topics that were thought to be discussed in the movie.
The article “Disney using the force of unboxing videos to hype Star Wars merchandise,” by Shan Li, explains of the surprising popularity of unboxing videos on YouTube and how Disney is using this to their advantage. Disney is producing a new Star Wars film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and they plan on selling and advertising Star Wars merchandise. However, according to Li, it’s getting harder and harder to gain the attention of kids recently on the TV. Maker Studios, the network of YouTubers that Disney bought for $500 million, utilizes this popular phenomenon of unboxing toys and reviewing them to hype Star Wars merchandise. They’ll embark on an eighteen-hour video marathon in different countries with different native languages ending at
“Star Wars Episode VIII” spoilers alert! The film and production crew is setting up in Dubrovnik, Croatia and the local scenery is slowly turning into alien world architecture.
Many works, movies, books, and shows are influenced by previous works, such as Sleeping Beauty influencing the making of Maleficent. However, a more distinct example would be Star Wars Episode I-VI inspiring the creation of Stars Wars: The Force Awakens. Yet, there is a striking cultural difference between Stars Wars: The Force Awakens and its previous episodes such as colored actors, stereotypes, and feminine protagonist.
I believe that Disney did not hold back the production of Rey toys because Rey was a girl. Disney said that they didn’t want to release Rey toys because they wanted to keep it a secret that Rey was the main protagonist in the new movie. They also said that they would be releasing action figures of Rey holding the blue lightsaber that she used to fight Kylo Ren. Having seen the movie myself, this makes sense. Toy manufactures do not have a reason to hold back a toy they could sell a lot of. They are in the business to make money.
Since the new Star Wars movie “The Force Awakens” came out on December,18 2015 numerous shoppers have been complaining on the account of the lack of Rey toys, one of the main characters.

Customers have been accusing store owners that they are promoting gender based toys. Some stores even distribute their toys into a boy’s section and a girl’s section and people have been criticizing them for this.
