George Lucas's original Star Wars
trilogy is a clever synthesis of pop-cultural and mythological
references, taking classic fairy-tale themes, adding more than a dash of
Arthurian legend, and providing cinematic high adventure inspired as
much by Kurosawa's Samurai epics as by Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers.
As a result, audiences of all ages can find something to identify with
in Luke Skywalker's journey from disaffected teenager dreaming of
adventure to Jedi Knight and saviour of the galaxy. He not only rescues a
Princess, but discovers she's a close relative. And if there's a lesson
to be gleaned from the Skywalker clan, it's that no matter how bad
things get in the average dysfunctional family, it's never too late for
Originally released in 1977, Star Wars,
the first film, was made as a standalone. Perhaps that's why Obi-Wan
Kenobi seems a tad inconsistent in his attitude towards his old pupil
Anakin Skywalker, and perhaps also why Luke is allowed to develop a
guilt-free crush on Princess Leia. Lucas's story, told from the point of
view of the two bickering droids (a device taken from Kurosawa's Hidden Fortress), also borrows freely from Errol Flynn's Robin Hood, as does John Williams's seminal Korngold-inspired music score.
Thanks in equal part to Leigh Brackett's screenplay and Irvin Kershner's direction The Empire Strikes Back
(1980) is the most grown-up instalment in the series. The basic
fairy-tale is developed and expanded, with the principal characters
experiencing emotional turmoil--blossoming romance, mixed feelings and
confused loyalties--amid a very real threat of annihilation as Darth
Vader's motivations become chillingly personal. Luke's quasi-Arthurian
destiny is complicated still further by the half-truths of his wizardly
mentors; and swashbuckler Han Solo finds the past catching up with him,
quite literally in the form of bounty hunter Boba Fett. The film is
graced by more fabulous landscapes (ice, forest, clouds), more
unforgettable new characters (Yoda), more groundbreaking special effects
(the asteroid chase), and John Williams's finest score.
The difficult third film, 1983's Return of the Jedi,
seems schizophrenic in its intentions, hoping to please both the
kiddies who bought all the toys and an older audience who appreciated
the narrative's epic and mythological strands. The result is a film that
splits awkwardly into two. One thread, which might be subtitled "The
Redemption of Anakin Skywalker", pursues the story of the Skywalker
family to a cathartic conclusion. The other thread, which might be
described as "The Care Bears Go to War", attempts to say something
profound about primitivism versus technological sophistication, but just
gets silly as furry midgets doing Tarzan whoops defeat the Emperor's
In 1997 Lucas re-released the three original
films in digitally remastered "Special Edition" versions, in which many
scenes have been restored and enhanced (some would say "unnecessarily
tinkered with"). Despite loud and continued criticisms from fans, these
Special Editions are now considered definitive, if only by Lucasfilm.
4-disc DVD box set containing Special Editions of all three films in the original Star Wars
trilogy (Episodes IV-VI), plus a bonus disc of brand new special features.
