Star Wars

Star Wars is a space-opera media franchise created by George Lucas that is known for its iconic roster of intergalactic characters, the invention of the Jedi order, and the popular lightsaber weapon. First introduced in the 1977 film, Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Star Wars instantly became a worldwide pop culture success that spread through the further creation of movies, toys, novels, theme parks, video games, cartoons, and television shows. The Star Wars saga successfully balances the intimacy of a family drama with the complexities of galactic politics, war, and religion. Part of Lucasfilm Ltd., which was purchased by the Walt Disney Company in 2012, Star Wars has now been revived for a younger generation through the creation of new original characters and stories that are interconnected with the original George Lucas franchise.
