On this day (May 25) – Star Wars is released

At the time of writing, Star Wars is one of the biggest multi-media franchises in the world. With eight core films, two spin-off films, two critically acclaimed cartoon series, countless books and toys, and the Holiday Special we all agreed to forget ever existed, Star Wars has become a cultural cornerstone for millions of fans. And it all started on this day back in 1977 when then-unknown director George Lucas released the first film (originally titled “Star Wars” but later renamed to “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope”), thus launching not only his career but those of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford.
