Star Wars: never have I both loved and loathed a franchise so much. The original three theatrical releases were work of genius, masterpieces. But it seems, the master lost his mind. When George Lucas started adding CGI to the original trilogy films, I hated it. When episodes 1,2 and 3 were released, I hated them. But there was still hope, some of the video games being released were great (Knights of the Old Republic!) and the Clone Wars television series was kinda cool. And then, a new hope, Lucas sold the Star Wars franchise to Disney, and on the horizon appears a new trilogy. This time George Lucas will have no influence on the films, and so… I remain hopeful, ever hopeful that Star Wars can return to greatness. In the meantime, here are a load of very awesome Star Wars inspired tees!

About Star Wars
The Star Wars franchise is one of the most well known and recognized science fiction franchises in modern history. The core film series of the Star Wars has generated an entire media franchise centered on the Star Wars story, law and universe, and has generated an enormous audience worldwide. There are currently two film trilogies set in the Star Wars universe, with books, video games as well as comic books that make up the Expanded Universe of Star Wars. The primary plot and story line in the Star Wars universe is the fight between the Jedi and the Sith, portrayed as a fight between the good, orderly forces of the Jedi and the evil, chaotic forces of the Sith. Despite the incredible commercial success and popular culture symbol that the Star Wars film franchise has become, there are still profound thematic and symbolic representations as part of the Star Wars story.

History

The beginning of the Star Wars franchise was released on May 25, 1977 in the form of Star Wars, also known as Episode IV: A New Hope. The order of the film as episode IV indicates that it is the fourth film chronologically according to the Star Wars universe, although it was the first film released part of the Star Wars trilogy. The Empire Strikes Back was release three years later, on May 21, 1980, while The Return of the Jedi was released another three years later, on May 25, 1983.

The prequel trilogy of Star Wars is released almost twenty years after the release of Episode IV: A New Hope. The Star Wars prequel trilogy began with Episode I: The Phantom Menace, released in May 19, 1999. This was followed by the second film in the prequel franchise, Episode II: Attack of the Clones, released on May 16, 2002. The final film of the trilogy was released on May 19, 2005, and was titled Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Episode III is the latest Star Wars film of the franchise, with Episode VII estimated to be released at an unannounced time in 2015.

Themes

The Star Wars franchise and core struggle between Jedi and Sith has been widely interpreted to represent themes and symbols extending beyond the Star Wars universe. The Force itself is an important theme which can represent numerous mythological as well as philosophical aspects. The Force itself is a mysterious entity that transcends conventional knowledge and allows the user to defy ordinary physical laws. It is widely associated with concepts of nature, harmony and spirituality, and has been associated with belief systems such as Taoism, Pantheism, and Buddhism. There is emphasis on harmony of nature and the ascendancy of harmony with nature over destruction of or control over nature. This is also reinforced in key plot developments, such as the successful Ewok uprising against the Empire on Endor, which shows that technological superiority doesn’t not always translate into superior force.

The conflict between Jedi and Sith is also significant because it shows the conflict between order and chaos. There is a profound point that Jedi and Sith power are ultimately derived from the same source. The difference is that Jedi use their power for order and harmony, whereas the Sith harness the destructive side of their power. This can be representative of humanity in general and the power that can be used for good and evil, and that the choice can dictate the actions and consequences of people in ways that they cannot envision.

Movies

The Star Wars movie franchise is one of the most critically acclaimed as well as commercially successful franchises in movie history. All six films in the prequel trilogy and original trilogy were successful commercially; the original trilogy earned a worldwide box office revenue of $1,788,879,251, with the US box office revenue of $1,060,779,251 amounting to $2,706,937,672 once it is adjusted for inflation. Furthermore, the first film of the trilogy, Episode IV: A New Hope, is currently number 6 in terms of all-time United States box office. The prequel trilogy earned $2,525,197,773 worldwide, with $1,165,491,994 in box office revenue from the United States.

In terms of critical acclaim, all six films in the two trilogies have been nominated for or won Academy Awards. The three films of the original trilogy all won Academy Awards, while the films of the prequel were nominated by did not win.

Books

The literary universe of the Star Wars Expanded Universe began with Alan Dean Foster’s 1978 novel named Splinter of the Mind’s Eye. The next significant literary addition to the Expanded Universe was the Thrawn or Heir to the Empire trilogy, which occurs five years after the events of Episode VI and features the Grand Admiral Thrawn as its main antagonist. Furthermore, the New Jedi Order series follows the story of Obi-Wan Kenobi and his experiences in periods of time which aren’t covered in the main film franchises.

TV

The Star Wars Expanded Universe also includes a series of animated television shows created around the Star Wars lore and characters. The television franchise began in September 1985 in the form of Star Wars: Droids which focuses on the story of C-3PO and R2-D2. However, the most modern and well-known iteration of the Star Wars TV franchise is Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which is an animated series between October 2008 and March 2013.

Games

The Star Wars Expanded Universe has also spawned a game franchise. There are numerous card and video games centered around the Star Wars universe, such as the Lego Star Wars games, the Battlefront series, as well as the critically acclaimed Knights of the Old Republic Star Wars Role Playing Game for PC.

The Future of the Franchise

The Star Wars franchise is still growing and expanding, with no sign of slowing down. There are new Star Wars literary works, games, and merchandise on the pipeline. Most importantly, Lucasfilm, the holding company of the Star Wars franchise and the rights to the story, was acquired by The Walt Disney Company in 2012 for over $4 billion. This has led to the production of a sequel trilogy, with the first film scheduled for release in 2015.
