A – Z Challenge – Sci-Fi Films S is for Star Wars

Hi there bloggies, I’ve been seeing some post warning me of an A – Z Challenge and I was curious. I’ve seen this around before but have never participated, for some mad reason I thought I would give it a go.

So here I am.

My theme is the A-Z of Scifi moves, I’ve not given this a great deal of thought and I know of a number but I won’t lie there’s some I will struggle with. I hope you enjoy them!

S is for Star Wars

Arguably the most famous Sci-Fi / Space Opera film of all time. Luke Skywalker finds himself in the middle of the battle between the evil Empire and the Galactic Rebellion when two new droids come into his care.

When R2D2 is discovered to be carrying the plans of the invincible Death Star Luke is helped by an aging Jedi, Obi Wan to find a way to get the plans to safe hands and not into the hands of the evil Darth Vader

I remember Star Wars from when I was very young and remember going to see it and the Empire Strikes back back to back when I was about 6 or 7, back in the days when there were just 2 films!

Sure there’s no a great deal of science in it but George Lucas created some unique and ground breaking concepts that have not been bettered 40 years later, the death star being a key example of that.


With S done that means T is next…

I'm an experimenter, explorer and fascinated by the world around me and the people in it. My exploration goes further than the known universe and expands out to universe's I've created in my mind and put onto the creative canvas. I'm not the person I used to be and over time I have evolved and the blog is evolving with me. Whatever this blog is in the future it's a place where all are welcome and ideas can roam free to find their magical place in the universe.

  1. Had to be. The impact on culture like a proverbial meteor. To name but two. Comic books are still being produced (some of my favourites), There is a whole ‘encyclopaedia’ of models from the Lego range (sent a copy to one of my grandsons). And the first film still looks fresh today…
