TIME Special Edition: The Story of Star Wars
When it comes to discovering all there is to know about this legendary phenomenon, to paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Ultimate Guide to Star Wars is the magazine you’re looking for. A long, long time ago – 1977, to be exact – in cineplexes not that far away, one of the most exciting and enduring franchises in entertainment history soared off into the stratosphere. Star Wars came onto the scene as an unheralded science fiction saga, following the adventures of a naïve kid and a determined princess who join forces with a cocky bounty hunter and some plucky robots to save the universe from ultimate evil. This space opera bubbled with the lively energy of an old-fashioned movie serial but stood out from everything that had come before it by speaking a language all its own, with strange new words and phrases like “Wookie” and “Jedi” and “the Force.” Pick up a copy and have all you love about Star Wars in one place, and learn a few things you didn’t know.
