“STAR WARS”, 40 YEARS OF GALACTIC FEVER

Today is a special date for many film fans because forty years have passed since a very, very distant galaxy revolutionized cinema. Yes. We talk about Star Wars that faces its splendid future as a huge fan phenomenon and as an extraordinary and unstoppable machine to make money.

On May 25, 1977, Star Wars: A New Hope was released, the first film of the universe devised by George Lucas and that with Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher as protagonists swept in the film ticket office almost against all odds.

The director was tired of the new Hollywood of the seventies and his artistic pretensions and narratives of violence and sex on the big screen and of the social and cultural confrontation in the United States by the Vietnam War.

His contribution was “Star Wars: A New Hope”, a film that appealed to the cinema like great escapist spectacle and suitable for all the spectators, especially for children and for adolescents.

The public response could not be better. This is the second highest-grossing film in US film history, with inflation-adjusted receipts, just behind “Gone with the Wind”.

Four decades after its appearance, the laser swords, the breathing of Darth Vader, balance of the Force or the Dark Side are terms that are part of the popular culture.
