ABOUT Star Wars

The May 25, 1977 theatrical debut of Star Wars-on a scant 32 screens across America-was destined to change the face of cinema forever. An instant classic and an unparalleled box office success, the rousing "space opera" was equal parts fairy tale, western, 1930s serial and special effects extravaganza, with roots in mythologies from cultures around the world. From the mind of visionary writer/director George Lucas, the epic space fantasy introduced the mystical Force into the cultural vocabulary, as well as iconic characters such as evil Darth Vader, idealistic Luke Skywalker, feisty Princess Leia, lovable scoundrel Han Solo and wise old Obi-Wan Kenobi. Since its debut more than three decades ago, Star Wars has continued to grow, its lush universe ever-expanding through film, television, publishing, video games and more.
