"A long time ago, in a galaxy, far, far away, George Lucas created a fantasy adventure that would change filmmaking forever. Lucas combined an old-fashioned appreciation for classic storytelling, drawing on the mythological structure of fables and legends plus the rousing adventure and action emphasis of Hollywood Westerns, war movies, swashbucklers and serials, with the most advanced and innovative screen special-effects work yet seen. Star Wars became a worldwide phenomenon, and launched a movie and merchandising franchise that would become the standard against which all others would be measured — often imitated but never equaled.
