The love that many have for the unknown regions of space can account for the popularity of the Star Wars series. Star Wars is the brain child of George Lucas. Released in 1977, Star Wars drew in fans by the millions. The overwhelming response to the first Star Wars prompted Lucas to continue the Star Wars story.
The first Star Wars movie (known now as Episode IV: A New Hope) introduced us to the characters we came to love. Luke Skywalker, Hans Solo, Princess Liea Organa, and the outstanding Darth Vader. Many viewers have a love/hate relationship with Darth Vader. Lucas was able to portray a chilling character that still captivated the audience. With the good versus evil theme Lucas took us into space and introduced us to new worlds.
Lucas followed up the original Star Wars with The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, now known as episodes five and six. We see Darth Vader being unveiled, loose ends put back together and hope returning to the space world as the Force wins out over darkness.
There were still many questions left unanswered in regards to the Star Wars characters. How and why did they become who they were? Lucas brought us the answers as he went back and made the “pre-quals.” We learn how Darth Vader became who he was, and how he came to power. We see many of our favorite characters in their younger days and the ordeals they went through. We also see how the war dawned between the Jedi and the Sith.
Star Wars prompted many to pick up a telescope and search the recesses of space with their own eyes. This movie did its part to create a positive atmosphere for learning among teens around the world.
