If you missed any of my recent posts about Star Wars — the three main trilogies and some of the interquel spin-off stuff — here’s a chance to revisit them.
“Written and Directed by George Lucas.”
“But, seriously, for any of you who weren’t alive in the years between the Original Trilogy and the Prequels, I don’t think it’s quite possible to convey how mind-blowing it was to watch Darth Maul turn on his lightsaber and then turn on the other side of his lightsaber.“
“Star Wars: A Star Wars Story.”
“Everything in the Interquel era is worth at least watching once, introduces some interesting elements or expands on a few previously-vague aspects of the Saga and does demonstrate that there are still cool Star Wars stories to be told outside either the main case of the main timeline of the Saga.”

“Luke, Be a Jedi Tonight.”
“Obviously, Star Wars is popular and influential. I don’t really have anything to add in that discussion. However, I would like to point out that the entire Original Trilogy has, as of last year, been included into the Library of Congress‘ National Film Registry, which puts it in some pretty lofty company.”
“Somehow, Star Wars returned.”
“So, basically, it’s that meme of a drawing of a horse…
