Description

Star Wars is a 1977 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas. It stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, and Alec Guinness. In the story, a group of freedom fighters known as the Rebel Alliance and led by Princess Leia plots to destroy the Death Star space station, which carries a planet-destroying capability created by the Galactic Empire. This conflict disrupts the isolated life of farmboy Luke Skywalker when he inadvertently acquires the droids containing the stolen plans for the Death Star. After the Empire begins a destructive search for the missing droids, Skywalker agrees to accompany Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi on a mission to return the Death Star plans to the Rebel Alliance and save the galaxy from the tyranny of the Galactic Empire. Lucas began writing the script to Star Wars after completing American Graffiti. He based the plot outline on Flash Gordon serials and the 1958 Akira Kurosawa film The Hidden Fortress. Lucas approached Alan Ladd, Jr. of 20th Century Fox, which accepted to finance and distribute the film, after United Artists and Universal Pictures rejected his script.
