Ever wonder what the third highest grossing film EVER is? Think it could be a movie only so called “nerds” would like? Or one of the biggest classics of the 19th century? Star wars is a movie loved by millions. Star Wars The Force Awakens made over 2 billion dollars. Just a few hundred million away from #1. Avatar. Star Wars The Force awakens is part of the star wars galaxy created by the famous LucasArts. This is the 7th movie of the series, and there is more to come. It takes place a long time ago in a galaxy Far Far away. There is galactic empires. People with powers and swords that can cut through anything. It is very interesting. But the takeaway from the film is fear. Fear is within every single person in the world being a person with
Star Wars is a very good movie with many details. There are so many characters and movies and it is just amazing how they came up with the Dark side and the Jedi. Also, they made the characters so cool and interesting. Also, I know that many people like Star Wars because the tickets for the new Star Wars, The Force Awakens is already sold out. I just love Star Wars and I hope you like it
The Death Star battle, or Battle of Yavin, is a climatic scene where the (first) Death Star, a giant moon shaped space station and weapon with abilities to destroy planets with its super laser, is destroyed by the Rebellion. This is actually Luke Skywalker’s first step to becoming a Jedi by showing his leadership skills and his skill potential.
George Lucas was a very credible director because he was influenced by the small town he grew up in Modesto. According to The Secret History of Star Wars, “Lucas’ father felt that George never quite measured up to his ideals of what a good son should be.” (Kiminski 9) Lucas seems to be comparing himself to the main character in Star Wars: A New Hope, Luke Skywalker. Both Luke and Lucas grew up in small towns, didn’t have a strong relationship with their father (or in Luke’s case, didn’t know their father), and they both thought they would never leave the small town they resided in.
The future looked bleak, and literature of the period reflected that. Grim dystopias were the order of the day in science fiction. Then came Star Wars, a futuristic tale coated in a shell of fantasy, chivalry, bravery and knighthood. It promised hope, in a time where societies had little left to spare. This lead to the unexpected and unprecedented success of Star Wars.
Few great filmmakers can write and oversee the production of a film that will be relevant and built upon for the next 4 decades. Even fewer filmmakers can be regarded as the person who changed cinema forever. George Lucas did all of this in 1977 with the release of the film he created, originally called, “The Star Wars.” He had this idea after his first feature length film “American Graffiti” in 1973. This film became popular and he later pitched his idea for a space opera to the production company. They agreed and Star Wars was born. In the beginning, it was meant to be one film, which would entail all of the story for the three films in the original trilogy, A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Due to budget
Luke starts of the movie as an ordinary person, but then receiving a message from the droid R2-D2 from princess Leia with the message, “Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.” From there Luke meets up with Obi-Wan and learns that he has the force, Luke and Obi-Wan leave Luke’s home planet to go save princess Leia from the Death Star and the Empire. They meet up with the additional characters of Han Solo and Chewbacca on the way. Once at the death star they rescue princess Leia. Ultimately Luke witness Obi-Wan’s death, but gain the plans to the Death Star, then joins the rebels as a pilot and helps destroys the Death Star and in the end, saves the day and is presented with a medal from princess Leia. Star Wars a New Hope follows the arc of a hero’s quest very well. The difference from the hero’s quest in the previously mentioned movie and opera is who Star Wars was intended for. Star Wars was written for Sci-Fi fans that could get invested in this huge fictional universe that is about to be built up. Because of this intention from the film creators to gain Si-Fi fans for a long time, Luke’s quest as the hero of the film really makes him the audience will focus on. The audience will be curious to see if this will be the character they will be following for many years to come in the franchise. Fortunately the reviews of the film loved it, as seen from Charles Champlin, a movie reviewer
Interestingly, ‘Star Wars’ itself was not a film about technology, however, the fact that it was set in a futuristic galaxy and empowering usage of special effects, meant that it was a reflection of the social change of society and the people of the time.
It is a long standing, recognized fact that the classic Star Wars films exhibited key archetypes in the human psyche. These included not only such universal themes as the male coming of age tale and feminism, but also somewhat more obscure examples. These included, but were not limited to, the Hero, the Anti Hero, the Mother, the Wise Old Man, the Devil, the Mentor, the Father, and others. These and others interact in a saga of events that leads the films' main characters to the 'spiritual' goal of self actualization. Though Star Wars will be the topic of this paper, it holds true that these themes are explored throughout pop culture, pointing to the idiotropic role of fiction in general. We play these stories out in our heads not simply for the flashes and bangs of entertainment value, but also, if only subconciously, to hold up a mirror our own souls and better understand the human condition.
“The Origins of Star Wars” Not so long ago in a galaxy a bit closer to home, George Lucas crafted one of the most iconic movies of all time. That movie was soon followed by a series of mind bending movies that captured the hearts and minds of generations up to this day. From light saber duels to the destructive power of the Death Star, Star Wars is one movie saga that we are all familiar with. But how did this captivating series come to be? How did it all begin? Just how did George Lucas come up with such brilliant ideas for Star Wars? What are the true origins of Star Wars? Not many people know that Star Wars isn’t the product of George Lucas’ own imagination. As a matter of fact, George Lucas actually got most of his ideas and concepts

When sound was introduced new genres like: the musical, horror film and film noir were born. Social and technological factors also contributed to the formation of new genres. In the mid 1940’s Hollywood started to experience a decline due to the talent and audience drain and the Paramount decision that
Filmmaker George Lucas's blockbuster film Star Wars changed the way movies are made. The quirky action-adventure film would be just one of the writer/director/producer's four entries on the list of the highest-grossing films of all time. Since his first attempts as a film-school student, Lucas challenged the way films were shot, edited, and mixed. His experiments in special effects
