A LONG TIME AGO …

On May 25, 1977, the world changed. This is absolutely not an overstatement.

Star Wars was a movie that George Lucas had a very hard time getting made. It was turned down by studio-after-studio. It was misunderstood and mis-marketed. It caused Lucas so much stress that he fled to Hawaii (with friend Steven Spielberg) during the release weekend sure that he had created a massive flop.

No one seemed more surprised by the movie’s success than Lucas himself.

Star Wars ushered in a new era in film: that of the summer blockbuster. It made science fiction a going concern. It is still imitated and copied, revered and loved.

It is, simply, one of the watersheds in the history of motion pictures.

Will history repeat itself this December?

Let’s be honest, the prequels didn’t live up to the original trilogy. Can the sequel trilogy?

It is difficult to see… always in motion, the future.

One thing’s for sure: we’ll always have Star Wars.
