What’s it about
Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise, centered on a film series created by George Lucas. It depicts the adventures of various characters “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”. The franchise began in 1977 with the release of the film Star Wars, which became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon. It was followed by the successful sequels The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi; these three films constitute the original Star Wars trilogy. A prequel trilogy was released between 1999 and 2005, which received mixed reactions from both critics and fans. A sequel trilogy began in 2015 with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. All seven films were nominated for Academy Awards and have been commercial successes, with a combined box office revenue of over US$7.5 billion, making Star Wars the third highest-grossing film series. Spin-off films include the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rogue One, the latter of which is the first in a planned series of anthology films.
