  • Star Wars: A Comparative Analysis

    There is no denying that George Lucas’ Star Wars is one of the greatest film franchises that will ever exist on the big screen. The Force Awakens, the newest film, has been criticized by some fans for copying the story of the original 1977 trilogy. Although there are some similarities between the two films’ plots, the story of the original films can be connected to the heroic plot traditions of Lord Raglan, and Luke Skywalker’s character reflects the virtues outlined in Alasdair MacIntyre’s After Virtue.
