Long Ago, In A Galaxy Far, Far, Away, George Lucas released the first film of what became a two-trilogy, six-movie series, a little movie that’s now known as Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, although at the time, was simply entitled, Star Wars. It was an immediate worldwide sensation, and was followed in 1980 by Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. In 1983, the original trilogy was completed by the release of Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi, in which everyone finally discovered
what happened to Han Solo, who Princess Leia really loved, and who Luke Skywalker’s father turned out to be after all.
