Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

Star Wars Holiday Special, The

November 17, 1978: A day that will live in infamy, at least for Star Wars fans. The Star Wars Holiday Special, a 2-hour TV show that aired on CBS, was intended to give fans something to bridge the gap between the summer 1977 release of A New Hope ...

Star Wars IV: A New Hope

When one examines the roster of the tens of thousands of motion pictures produced since the late 1800s, not many stand out as trailblazers. One of the few inarguable members of that select cadre is George Lucas' soaring 1977 space opera, Star ...

Star Wars: A New Hope

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

For many years (16 in particular), Return of the Jedi was considered the weakest of the Star Wars films. Then, in 1999, along came The Phantom Menace to displace it in the minds of many. Left unrealized as the prequels began their theatrical tour is ...

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

For three years, we waited. As bits of news filtered through the Hollywood grapevine into the trade papers and Starlog, we gobbled them up. Still, by early 1980, not much was known about Star Wars 2 (officially retitled The Empire Strikes Back by the...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Back in 1983, burned-out after completing the original Star Wars trilogy, George Lucas opined that he might be done. 22 years later, with the release of Revenge of the Sith (and after being pilloried by “fans” about the prequels), he said ...
