A long time ago, (in 1977) George Lucas released a little fantasy film about freedom fighters and space wizards and the world of cinema was changed forever. From the first moments when that iconic text begins to crawl, John Williams’ score triumphantly arrives, and the opening shot of a star destroyer comes soaring overhead, it becomes abundantly clear why Star Wars shattered every box office record upon its release and launched one of the biggest franchises of all time.
You know these characters and know these moments but until you have seen them on the big screen you simply have not experienced the phenomenon of the original Star Wars!
