Today “Star Wars” celebrates a milestone with it’s 35th Anniversary. On May 25, 1977 the beginning of an amazing trilogy was created, surprisingly not by a God but by a mere mortal man who goes by the name George Lucas and that film is “Star Wars”, though the title changed in 1981 to “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.”
After the release of “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope”, two sequels were released and they were called “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back” and “Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi” and damn were these movies so good, to say you’ve never seen them means you’re missing out big time in life.
Later in 1999, a prequel trilogy was released “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace”, “Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones” and “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.”
A lot of people complained saying that the prequel trilogy was horrible, especially the first episode. I don’t entirely agree with this, the first episode wasn’t the greatest, but it was pretty good, how can you not love that last fight with Darth Maul vs. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Attack of the Clone and Revenge of the Sith were amazing and I enjoyed them just as much as I did the original. The “Star Wars” franchise has spawned TV series, comic books, video games and huge fan base. On this glorious day I recommend you honor it by watching one of the films, or if you’re a die hard “Star Wars” fan just watch both trilogies.
