Welcome to my Star Wars page. Here you will find lots of information about the wonderful Star Wars series by George Lucas. There will soon be a comprehensive character database on these pages.
What is Star Wars?
Star Wars is an enormous "space
opera" franchise originally developed by George Lucas during the 1970s. It has
since expanded significantly. The first film in the franchise was simply titled
Star Wars, but later had the subtitle "A New Hope" added to distinguish it from
its sequels and later, its prequels. Star Wars was released on May 25th, 1977 by
20th Century Fox, and became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon, spawning two
sequels films, "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi". Twenty-two
years after Star Wars was released, Lucas began the release of a second trilogy
as a prequel to the original trilogy, with the original films being episodes
IV-VI and the new films being episodes I-III. The franchise has also spawned a
range of other media including television series, comic books, video games,
novels and other merchandise. These supplements to the films are referred to as
the Star Wars "Expanded Universe", and have resulted in significant development
of the series' fictional universe.
As of 2008, the overall box office revenue generated by all six Star Wars films has totaled approximately US$4.3 billion, making it one of the most successful franchises of all time.
