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.
In the days of the Old Republic, Jedi Master Yoda was the most wise and powerful of all Jedi. Diminutive and unassuming, Yoda had no equals in his keen insight into the Force, or in his agile skill with a lightsaber. For over 800 years, Yoda instructed young Jedi and instilled them a profound sense of discipline, strength, and unity. The Jedi Order nobly served the Galactic Republic and maintained peace and order for over a thousand generations before the dark side re-emerged and plunged a helpless galaxy into the hands of the evil Sith. During these dark times, Yoda became the last of the Jedi and the only hope in instructing young Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force. Through his last apprentice, Yoda helped Luke to fulfil his destiny – a destiny that would finally restore peace to the galaxy and honor the legend of the Jedi.
