A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….
35 Years ago TODAY a sci-fi film hit the cinemas, and blasted off into the cultural history of the whole planet. That simple low budget film has since spawned TWO sequels, THREE prequels, An Animated film, An Animated TV Series, A Live action TV Series in planning, Countless dozens of Books, Comics, Computer Games, Not to mention all the Toys, Outfits, Etc. There is even a RELIGION based on this film. And hopefully soon WORKING LIGHTSABERS
Who knew these simple characters would affect generations of people from all walks of life, Hell I think this film franchise could help world peace. I think all peace negotiators should before sitting the different parities down to try and fix issues should say “What about that JarJar Binks. Most annoying creation ever?” and then sit back to watch the parties who have not agreed on anything in Milena both nod and concur.
Even if you are not a fan you have to be impressed by just how massive and long lived this simple story has become. I think this weekend I will try and watch the films again (Or at least watch them over the next week, and in the best order. 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, 6)
I think you should now go to StarWars.com and watch the ORIGINAL film trailer from 35 years ago.
May the Force be with you!
