    For years I have been watching the Star Wars movies, never thinking I would actually see one for the first time in theaters. The last Star Wars movie to hit theaters in my life time was Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith in 2005, and it was stinker. If you ask anyone who considers themselves a fan of the Star Wars movies, they will tell you the first trilogy was some of the best cinema ever created, and the second trilogy was in comparison just completely awful. In fact a lot of people wish the…

George Lucas and his Star Wars films provide a prime example of a film that is a pastiche of various other films, while also serving as a cache of inspiration for future filmmakers. Such inspiration was needed at a time when the film industry had little direction because of the influence of big business and Wall Street along with the disintegration of the Motion Picture Production Code.

    I have always wanted to be Obi-Wan Kenobi. Not Luke or Anakin, despite always having an interest in the villain. Just Obi-Wan. When I was younger, my friends and I would often recreate our favorite scenes from Star Wars. Of course, ninety-nine percent of the time that meant reenacting the fight between Anakin and Kenobi from Revenge of the Sith (but I mean come on, two Jedis in a duel to the death while balancing over a lava pit, nothing is cooler than that). I know, I know, it may not be…

Table 1 presented below compares the stages of the Hero’s Journey to the events that occurred in the movie, A New Hope. *(Christopher Vogler’s condensed version of the Hero’s Journey has been used in this paper to view this theory from a more general perspective in contrast to…
