In the Stars Wars galaxy, evil is on the move as the Galactic Alliance and Jedi order battle forces seen and unseen, from rampant internal treachery to the nightmare of all-out war.
Despite strained relationships caused by opposing sympathies in the war, Han and Leia Solo and Luke and Mara Skywalker remain united by one frightening suspicion: Someone insidious is manipulating this war, and if he or she isn't stopped, all efforts at reconciliation may be for naught.
Civil war looms as the fledgling Galactic Alliance confronts a growing number of rebellious worlds–and the approaching war is tearing the Skywalker and Solo families apart.

  Star Wars and Wagner's Ring
Star Wars was the first film with a world-wide distribution to use the new Dolby stereo-optical sound system, a system which later has made possible the many surround systems.
In Star Wars the central conflict is between lust for power, symbolized by the Death Star and exemplified by the actions of Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine and Jabba the Hutt on the one hand, and love, exemplified by the actions of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke, Leia, Han Solo, R2D2 and 3PO on the other hand.
Common in the Star Wars series and the Ring is the fact that this conflict not only is central, it is in part a conflict of life and death, and it is a conflict where the son, at least for a time being, does not know he is facing his father.

 Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, originally released as simply Star Wars, is a 1977 science fantasy film written and directed by George Lucas.
It was the first film to be released in the Star Wars saga, and the fourth in terms of internal chronology.
The climactic scene in which the Death Star is assaulted was modeled after the 1950s movie The Dam Busters, in which RAF Lancaster bombers fly along heavily defended reservoirs and aim "bouncing bombs" at their manmade dams in a bid to cripple the heavy industry of the Ruhr.

When a Dark Side Adept was selected into the brotherhood, they went through an initiation of sorts in which the adept was empowered with the dark side of the Force by Palpatine himself.
As the war accelerated, the Dark Side Elite began to take a more personal role in the war and were tasked with hunting down Luke Skywalker to prevent his interference in the Emperor's plans.
However, the Emperor's Dark Jedi were unable to match Skywalker's power, and with the help of other Jedi that Skywalker had found on his journeys, along with his sister Leia Organa Solo, the Elite were withered down to a paltry few.

 DVD Review - The Star Wars Trilogy
It seems that the galaxy is embroiled in a massive civil war between the evil Galactic Empire and the freedom-loving Rebel Alliance.
Too much is predictable here (such as the appearance of a second Death Star) and too many compromises were made for the younger audience members (the very presence of the Ewoks, for example) which is especially noticeable after the more adult themes of the previous installment.
Then, after the second Death Star is destroyed, when the film cuts to the various celebrations around the galaxy, Naboo is now included among the planets we see.

 "Star Wars" - Salon
Now watching aged Ben Kenobi talk to Luke about his days as a young Jedi in "Star Wars" we flash in our minds to Ewan McGregor's young Obi-Wan dueling Darth Maul in "The Phantom Menace." When Princess Leia talks of her mother on the doomed planet Alderaan, we picture Natalie Portman's Padm Amidala.
"Star Wars" is the ultimate diversion, a movie universe where the three-dimensional complexities of modern life have been boiled down to essential struggles: David vs. Goliath; good vs. evil.
"Star Wars" arrived just after Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" rollicked movie fans and the movie biz by revitalizing the popcorn adventure yarn, simultaneously inaugurating the era of the wide release and massive box office payoffs.

It was during this sabbatical that an individual by the name of Michael Potts, one of the folks behind Star Wars Timetales, began to suggest to Bob that he join the staff of TheForce.net.
The move to what is arguably the most popular Star Wars website on the internet today helped rekindle Bob’s waning interest in the Star Wars saga and the CUSWE project at large.
The Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia (version 5.1) is still on TheForce.net today, with a record of nearly 38,000 entries, standing uncontested as the most extensive reference database of its kind.

 CNN Cold War - Historical Documents: Reagan's 'Star Wars' speech
The system he proposed became known as "Star Wars," after the popular movie, because it was meant to destroy missiles from space.
Since the dawn of the atomic age, we've sought to reduce the risk of war by maintaining a strong deterrent and by seeking genuine arms control.
It took one kind of military force to deter an attack when, we had far more nuclear weapons than any other power; it takes another kind now that the Soviets, for example, have enough accurate and powerful nuclear weapons to destroy virtually all of our missiles on the ground.

Instead, bucking their logic and lowered expectations, Star Wars became not only the biggest hit of its time, but it also launched both a multi-movie series and a huge merchandising/multimedia "empire" that made millions for the shy, unassuming USC film school graduate from Modesto, California.
Star Wars' second half, starting with the fateful meeting in the now famous Mos Eisley cantina with Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and culminating with the climactic space battle over the Death Star, is a fast-paced chain of cliffhangers intended to be an homage to the cheesy-but-thrilling movie serials of the Thirties and Forties.
Star wars A new hope was orginally released in 1977....Later on they released this movie again in 1997 as "Star Wars-Special Edition" together with the other trilogy films...

 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005): Reviews
The darkest, most operatic, and technologically richest "Star Wars" movie to date, "Sith" is grim, stirring entertainment and a nearly complete vindication of everything its creator has been saying for six years about where the series was heading and what its final shape would be.
[***SPOILERS***] Touted by Star Wars fans as the redemption of the prequel series, Revenge of the Sith is rather the final gasp of a dying legacy.
RoS introduces several inconsistencies into the Star Wars universe, such as Leia remembering her mother in the original trilogy even though her mother, by film's end, dies giving shortly after giving birth to her.

 Star Wars: The Changes - Part One in Editorial > Articles at DVDActive
With the recent release of the trilogy on DVD I decided that now was a good time to try and catalogue the evolution of these films from the 1977, 1980, and 1983 releases, to their present day incarnations.
This is one of those classic Star Wars moments that has stayed with me since childhood, and is a good example of how the original films managed to be humorous without resorting to slapstick and fart jokes.
In the original release an echo effect was added to their voices in order to lend the Death Star a sense of scale, but as most of you will know this wasn’t the most convincing of effects.

Yes, these changes mean that the Star Wars films are no longer the ones you saw 20 years ago, but these brief changes hardly affect the films, and they do make sense in the overall continuity of the two trilogies.
I wasn't even born in 1964.) Original Star Wars fans are called oldtimers and accused of not letting go of the past and not appreciating that times change.
