Episode 74: Star Wars (1977)

starwars"A Long Time Ago, In A Galaxy Far, Far Away..." These words have been emblazoned on film history since May 25th, 1977, when George Lucas's epic space opera, "Star Wars," was first relased! A relatively new director, a band of actors both seasoned and new, a dream of special effects that hadn't been invented yet, and a studio unsure of its commitment to the genre, Star Wars took the world by storm. Written and directed by George Lucas, and starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, along with veteran actors Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker, and backed up by two very famous actors - Peter Cushing and Sir Alec Guinness, this film rose to heights few films ever achieve, and started a cinematic dynasty that's still being produced today! It wasn't completely smooth sailing through the production, and it was difficult to chew on the often clunky dialogue, but Star Wars found its place in film and the audience's hearts, and is one of the most beloved storied every told. Plus, it acknowledges, follows, and pays homage to the work of two revered teachers, one in mythology and one in psychology, Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung, to forge a story as old as time, yet still something no one had ever seen before!
