Star Wars is an American epic movie franchise centred on a film series created originally by George Lucas in 1977. The franchise depicts a galaxy described as "far, far away" in the distant past, and portrays Jedi as a representation of good, in conflict with the Sith, their evil counterpart.
The first film in the series, Star Wars , was released on May 25, 1977, by 20th Century Fox and became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon. It has since been followed by five additional Episodes, with the seventh due to be released in 2015. All six Star Wars films have been nominated for or won Academy Awards, and all were huge box office successes; making Star Wars one of the highest-grossing film series ever.
The beautiful Princess Leia Organa is a symbol of diplomacy, strength, and hope within the Rebel Alliance. While serving as the youngest member of the imperial Senate, Princess Leia secretly leads the struggling Rebellion in their mission to overthrow the Galactic Empire.
After being captured and forced to witness the destruction of her homeworld, Leia continues to place her dedication to the Alliance above her own personal needs and safety. She makes a new family within the Rebellion and with her rescuers, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. Soon, the Princess develops feelings for Han and begins to display a tender warmth previously hidden beneath her brave exterior.
During the Battle of Endor, the Princess discovers Luke to be her twin brother, separated at birth to protect them from their father, the villainous Darth Vader. Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi had placed them in hiding because he knew that if Vader's offspring were allowed to realize their latent Force abilities, they would be the only hope in returning peace and order to the galaxy. Through this realized potential and strong resolve, Leia helps the Rebellion succeed in bringing the Empire's tyranny to an end.
