Starting 17 December, witness saber action for six spectacular weeks with all the six titles in the US$ 3.5 billion franchise, including the premiere of Star Wars Episode III- Revenge of the Sith, airing in sequence for the first time on Indian television. So fasten your seat belts and get set for an adventure as Star Movies takes you on a journey to a far away galaxy, every Sunday night at 9 pm.





Star Wars is a science fantasy saga and fictional galaxy created by writer / producer / director George Lucas during the 1970's.


The saga began with the film Star Wars (later retitled Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope), which was released on May 25 1977, by 20th Century Fox.


The film became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon - spawning five more feature films, three spin-off films, five television series and an extensive collection of licensed books, comics, video games, action figures, trading cards, card games, and other products - all of which are set within a fictional galaxy far, far away.


The all time US box office has all the six Star Wars blockbusters in its top 25, with each film earning over US$ 500 million worldwide. George Lucas' franchise has also been a mainstay at the Academy Awards, honored with three special achievement awards and winning seven Oscars.


The Star Wars saga has had a significant impact on modern global pop culture. Science fiction since Star Wars, particularly in film, has often been influenced by and compared to Star Wars. References to the main characters and themes of Star Wars are casually made in Western society with the well-qualified assumption that others will understand the reference.

George Lucas is also famous for using the best possible cameras and technology in his movies. Many say that the visual and virtual effects that take over today's movies would have never been created if not for Lucas' revolutionising of the movie industry with Star Wars.
