Star Wars franchise
Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise centred on a film series created by George Lucas. It depicts the adventures of various characters "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away", mostly involving, but not limited to, the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker.
The first film in the series, Star Wars (later subtitled Episode IV: A New Hope), was released on May 25, 1977 by 20th Century Fox and became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon. It was followed by the similarly successful sequels The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983); these three films constitute the original Star Wars trilogy. A prequel trilogy was later released between 1999 and 2005, which received a more mixed reaction from critics and fans, compared to the original trilogy. All six films were nominated for or won Academy Awards, and were commercial successes, with a combined box office revenue of $4.38 billion,[2] making Star Wars the fifth-highest-grossing film series.[3] The series has spawned an extensive media franchise—the Star Wars expanded universe—including books, television series, computer and video games, and comic books, resulting in significant development of the series's fictional universe. Star Wars also holds a Guinness World Records title for the "Most successful film merchandising franchise." In 2012, the total value of the Star Wars franchise was estimated at USD $30.7 billion (£19.51 billion), including box-office receipts as well as profits from their video games and DVD sales.

    Star wars TV

    I may become unpopular. Oh well, here goes. Ive watched all the star wars tv series. The added time that a series provides, should give the writer scope for interesting plot, character development, intrigue, twists etc. This is explored very well in tv series like breaking bad, sucession, etc...

    Question Which game should i get?

    So the other half is going away for the weekend and I thought I should pull the trigger on one of these two games that I held off on until the prices came down. I have played the first Jedi game so would be good to continue the story but Hogwart's Legacy looked like a lot of fun.
