Star wars 3

After being turned down by several major studios, young director George Lucas, fresh from the success of his American Graffiti, took the project to 20th Century Fox. Armed with the youngest, brightest, and most resourceful model makers and technicians in the business, the creative team revolutionized the film industry by creating new and startling technologies in bringing the saga of Luke Skywalker and the Rebels’ battle to overthrow the evil Empire to the screen. It won seven Academy Awards, mostly in technical fields. Lucas drew from his love of watching afternoon matinees on television as a child to incorporate themes of good vs. evil, spirituality, a damsel in distress, World War II dogfights, Japanese samurai pictures and cliff-hanging serials. He created something the world hadn’t seen before. Star Wars created a cinematic folklore and an ever-expanding universe that will live on and on and on. The special edition will be screened.
