It’s not often that a motion picture goes on to shape the culture of a generation, but George Lucas’ 1977 Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope did just that, not only once but over and over again. Opening with several paragraph of background information accompanied by an opening theme from a soundtrack so inspiring that it won composer John Williams an Academy Award for Best Original Score Star Wars starts off with a bang. Most movies that require background reading in order to understand what’s going on would leave the audience bored out of their minds, but most movies aren’t Star Wars. Without seeming derivative Lucas draws inspiration from sources as varied as The Bible and Nazi Germany, and manages to tell a story that although may not be entirely unique is still entirely entertaining nearly forty years after it’s original release.

Set “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”, Star Wars tell the story of young Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), a somewhat whiny moisture farmer on the backwater desert planet of Tatooine. Dreaming of life outside of the sandbox of a planet on which he was raised, Luke is thrust into conflict of epic proportions when he acquires two new droids, C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) and R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) who are carrying a secret message from the beautiful Princess Leia to the mysterious wizard Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness). The message contains details about the Death Star; a “Technological Terror” constructed by the evil Galactic Empire with enough firepower to destroy an entire planet, and a plea for Kenobi to join the Rebel Alliance on the planet Alderaan. After his aunt and uncle are killed by Imperial Stormtroopers (Space Nazis anyone?) searching for the droids, Luke has no choice but to join Kenobi in his quest against the Empire. With the help of the charismatic rogue Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and his furry sidekick Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), the group leaves Tatooine behind to embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
