Star Wars Over The Years

Joshua Canfield, Staff Writer

Throughout the years of the Star Wars franchise, it has gone through a lot of changes. All the way back in 197 with the first movie Star Wars, later renamed Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The movies’ main creator, George Lucas, has been the man behind it all from the beginning. Even though in the recent movies he is not the director, he is still definitely an influence.

Through the forty years Star Wars has existed it has seen different directors, cast, and special effects. It is really awesome to see the improvements from the first movie to the most recent one that will come out December 15, Star Wars: The Last Jedi directed by Rian Johnson.

George Lucas created Star Wars, but now the handle was passed to J.J. Abrams, (who isn’t directing the upcoming movie but will return episode 9) for the latest released movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He did an amazing job making an old franchise still being retro have a modern touch. Even with the digital remakes of the original trilogy in 1997, and changing the flaws, the modern-day special effects bring the Star Wars universe to life on the big screen really astounding.

Whether you are a die-hard fan, or someone to likes to see a movie with friends, the Star Wars franchise has always left the “good taste” in your mouth when you watch it.
