There are movies that leave an impression on their audience that stays with them for a long time, and then there are movies that become instant classics on the day of their release, and then there is Star Wars. The release of the first film in the franchise saw audiences reacting to a piece of cinema like never before, with fans of the subsequent additions to the series becoming more and more loyal and revering to the universe created by George and Anthony Lucas.
The credit for the absurd and never before seen success of the original trilogy doesn’t just go to the outstanding and otherworldly concept and design, but also to the set of diverse characters that the franchise introduced, making it one of the most unique pieces of cinema in history. And not to mention, the universe that was created with the franchise is still being explored to this day, which is why the fans are now demanding that the studio focus more on the Dark Side of this universe.
Fans Demand To See The Story Of The Dark Side Be Brought To Life
While the franchise had the heart for adventure and exploration of the vast universe that emerged with the release of the first film at its core, Star Wars was also a story of the war between good and evil fought for generations to take control over the galaxy. And with the release of The Rise Of Skywalker, the story of the main protagonist Luke Skywalker came to an end, resting the chapter of the Skywalker Saga. But now, as Disney and Lucasfilm prepare themselves to come out with a new announcement for the franchise, fans urge them to bring something that has long been overdue.
