The very first Star Wars movie was in 1977. It was called A New Hope. The main Character was Luke Skywalker. It’s about when Luke becomes a Jedi and has to save princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader. After that first movie people from all across the world loved it and it became so popular that the movie maker made 5 more movies (1980, 1983, 1999, 2002, and 2005). Than in 2008 they made a cartoon Star Wars movie for kids. Now you are probably thinking is there going to be another movie? Well, you’re in luck because on December 15, 2015 there will a new Star Wars movie released! Yeah! There isn’t a name for it yet, but from what I’ve read, it will be very interesting because they will be using all the same actors as in the original Star Wars movie. Cool eh!
Another change that happened about one year ago was that Star Wars was bought by Disney. That might sound confusing but Disney bought all of their props, costumes and all the things they used for their movies. It cost about 4 billion dollars. They are now going to be adding more Star Wars theme rides and games at Disney World. I’m going next year!
Now let’s talk more about the characters in the story. Some of the main characters in Star Wars are Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Han Solo, R2-D2, Chewbacca, C-3PO and Obi-wan Kenobi. Personally my all-time favorite character is Obi-wan Kenobi. Why you ask? Well, he is very smart around enemies and is very good at fighting with his light saber. Now if you have watched the first movie (The New Hope) Obi-wan dies, but not really, he just actually disappears. I also like Luke Skywalker because again, just like Obi-wan Kenobi, Luke was a very good Jedi fighter. Also, Luke is Anakin’s (Darth Vader’s) son. Luke’s sister is princess Leia and his mother Padmé Amidala.
What is your favorite character and what do you predict will happen in 2015?
