Reviewed By: Anantha Alagappan

Movies 4,5, & 6

A magnum opus, a cult by itself, STAR WARS is an epic adventure, every child’s fantasy. Once a STAR WARS fan, always a STAR WARS fan. What started as one movie grew up to a franchise by itself, branching into films, animation series, video games, toys and books, a fictional world of  its own .

There are nine movies in the STAR WARS series. The first movie, which was made in 1977 is actually the fourth in the series, followed by the sequels, which are fifth and sixth in the whole series.

A prequel trilogy was made nearly 17 years later, which comprises movies 1, 2, & 3. The sequel trilogy, movies 7, 8, & 9 were made just a few years back after the franchise was bought by Disney.

The Storyline

The STAR WARS is about the adventure which happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away and comprises characters which include humans, aliens, robots, & droids. These characters do space travel from one planet to another using space ships.

According to STAR WARS, there is a mystical force which balances the entire galaxy. There are few with whom this force is strong and these characters possess superpowers and can perform some supernatural actions.  Predictably, there are few good characters who use the force the right way, they are called Jedi. They believe in discretion and detachment and use the force to protect the galaxy. There is the opposite side, the dark side, who manipulate this force and use it to gain more power in the galaxy. These are called the Sith, and they use the power to gain control on various stars and planets in the galaxy and demolish life. They yearn for control.

The first trilogy which was released, introduces the two sides of the force and the forebearers of the same. The Jedi and the Sith possess equal powers and battle with their weapons, called the light sabers. The story starts with the dark side of the force establishing the Republic and threatening the Jedi almost extinct. Most of the Jedi succumb to the power of Darth Vader, the fierce knight of the dark side. Few Jedi who are alive are in hiding. Then comes Luke Skywalker, the torch bearer and a Jedi knight whose destiny is to battle Darth Vader and bring balance to the galaxy.

He is supported by very interesting and adorable characters, two droids, R2-D2 and 3PO, a human Han Solo, a wooky Chewy, and a beautiful princess Leah. Together, a handful of these rebels are up against the evil imperial knight of the mighty Galactic Empire, the Darth Vader.

Will they be able to defeat him and bring the galaxy back into order is the crux of the first trilogy?

My Two Cents On The First Trilogy

STAR WARS is a global phenomena which casts it’s magic sweeping the audience off their feet for nearly two decades. A trailer is enough to drive the audience mad. Every moment is so enjoyable and we keep clutching our seats to see who battles whom. The droids and the wooky are few of the most adorable characters which we ever witnessed on the celluloid screen.

Harrison Ford as Han Solo is no less than a super-man. His chemistry with princess Leah is electric. Darth Vader is a legend, every kid is attracted to the dark side of the force because of him. Yoda is adorable and his dialect became a whole new script by itself. Luke Skywalker, the ideal Jedi on whom the world places it’s trust, walks off winning everyone’s heart.

If you like Avengers, you will fall head over heels in love with STAR WARS. What are you waiting for? Charge up your light sabers and get ready to plunge in the inter galactic battle ! It is worth a fight. May the Force be with you !
