Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope
Star Wars – or to give it it’s newer title – Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope was the first film in the franchise. It was an immediate and massive success both critically and commercially, going on to win 6 Academy Awards.
It featured an old fashioned story, new young actors (and some elder statesmen), great make up and amazing special effects.
Nowadays its hard to imagine quite how ground breaking it was, from the robots – R2-D2 and C-3PO – to the cute creatures and animals, think Chewbacca. And let’s not forget the terrifying Darth Vader.
