This enhanced eBook transforms The Making of Star Wars into an immersive multimedia experience worthy of the original film. It features exclusive content pulled from the Lucasfilm archives by author J. W. Rinzler: • 26 minutes of rare behind-the-scenes video* • 29 minutes of rare audio interviews with the cast and crew • New bonus photos and artwork not found in the print edition After the 1973 success of American Graffiti, filmmaker George Lucas made the fateful decision to pursue a longtime dream project: a space fantasy movie unlike any ever produced. Lucas envisioned a swashbuckling SF saga inspired by the Flash Gordon serials, classic American westerns, the epic cinema of Japanese auteur Akira Kurosawa, and mythological heroes. Its original title: The Star Wars. The rest is history, and how it was made is a story as entertaining and exciting as the movie that has enthralled millions for more than thirty years—a story that has never been told as it was meant to be. Until now. Using his unprecedented access to the Lucasfilm Archives and its trove of “lost” interviews, photos, production notes, factoids, and anecdotes, Star Wars scholar J. W. Rinzler hurtles readers back in time for a one-of-a-kind behind-the-scenes look at the nearly decade-long quest of George Lucas and his key collaborators to make the “little” movie that became a phenomenon. It’s all here: • the evolution of the now-classic story and characters—including “Annikin Starkiller” and “a huge green-skinned monster with no nose and large gills” named Han Solo • excerpts from George Lucas’s numerous, ever-morphing script drafts • the birth of Industrial Light & Magic, the special-effects company that revolutionized Hollywood filmmaking • the studio-hopping and budget battles that nearly scuttled the entire project • the director’s early casting saga, which might have led to a film spoken mostly in Japanese—including the intensive auditions that won the cast members their roles and made them legends • the grueling, nearly catastrophic location shoot in Tunisia and the subsequent breakneck dash at Elstree Studios in London • the who’s who of young film rebels who pitched in to help—including Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, and Brian DePalma But perhaps most exciting, and rarest of all, are the interviews conducted before and during production and immediately after the release of Star Wars—in which George Lucas, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Sir Alec Guinness, Anthony Daniels, composer John Williams, effects masters Dennis Muren, Richard Edlund, and John Dykstra, Phil Tippett, Rick Baker, legendary production designer John Barry, and a host of others share their fascinating tales from the trenches and candid opinions of the film that would ultimately change their lives. No matter how you view the spectrum of this phenomenon, The Making of Star Wars stands as a crucial document—rich in fascination and revelation—of a genuine cinematic and cultural touchstone. *Video may not play on all readers.

Unlike most makers of modern or futuristic films, George Lucas turned away from the standard special operatives or secret agents when he created the heroes for his epic Star Wars saga. Part knight, part monk, the Jedi Knights were an order of swordsmen that helped rule the universe in accordance with law and lofty principles of justice and honor. Without the Jedi, there could be no Star Wars, and without the lightsaber sword, there could be no Jedi. This examination of the Jedi Knights, their adversaries the Sith and their lightsaber swordplay throughout all six episodes of the franchise evaluates the ways in which Lucas blended science fiction with the most ancient and epic tales of traditional samurai and Western swordsmen. It presents swordsmanship as a way to better understand the Jedi Knights, focusing on the human movement and activity surrounding the weapon and the ways in which traditional Japanese martial arts were adapted for use in the films. Topics of discussion include the powerful effects of the master-apprentice relationship; the technical choreography used in the lightsaber scenes of the Star Wars films; and the historical precedents for the Jedi order, including the Sohei fighting monks of Japan, the Janissaries and Mamelukes of Islam, and the knights of the Templar, Hospitaller and Teutonic orders.

The official comics adaptation! The action of the Clone Wars comes to a dramatic conclusion, and events are put in place for A New Hope. Battles rage in space, armies clash on alien worlds, heroes become martyrs, and friends become enemies-all leading up to the biggest, longest, and most incredible lightsaber duel in Star Wars history! This is the film that answers the questions, How did Anakin succumb to the dark side? What happened to Luke and Leia's mother? And why are there no Jedi around in the original Trilogy? Artist Doug Wheatley (Star Wars: Empire volume two) brings a level of life and detail to the adaptation that rivals that of the films themselves. An epic graphic novel not to be missed!

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Deutsch, Note: 2,3, Christian-Albrechts-Universit t Kiel (Institut f r neuere deutsche Literatur und Medien), 50 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: "Es war einmal vor langer Zeit in einer weit, weit entfernten Galaxis...." - Dieser Satz leitet in den Krieg der Sterne" ein, ein Weltraumepos aus der Feder des amerikanischen Filmemachers George Lucas. Die Ver ffentlichung des ersten StarWars-Films hat eine Entwicklung eingeleitet, die ihresgleichen sucht und als Renaissance des Genres1 bezeichnet wird: Zun chst als Low-Budget-Film mit geringen Aussichten auf finanziellen Erfolg eingestuft, spielte Star Wars"2 schon am ersten Wochenende seine geringen Produktionskosten wieder ein.3 W hrend der Science- Fiction-Film der Siebziger Jahre haupts chlich d stere und pessimistische Zukunftsvisionen zeigte4, bestach Star Wars durch eine auf den ersten Blick einfache Handlung und griff auf altbekannte Erz hlstrukturen zur ck5. Die Technik, die als Hauptgegenstand das Science-Fiction-Genre auszeichnet6, wird in der Star Wars-Welt weder thematisiert noch problematisiert. Der m rchenhafte Charakter der Filme erw chst unter anderem daraus, dass die phantastischen Elemente7 des Films (Raumschiffe, Lichtschwerter, Ungeheuer, etc.) Voraussetzung und Medium der Handlung sind.8 Sie geh ren zur Welt des Geschehens, ohne vom Publikum oder den Figuren hinterfragt zu werden und erschlossen StarWars auch f r j ngeres Publikum. Dar ber hinaus ist hinter der actionlastigen Handlung von StarWars eine zus tzliche Dimension verborgen, die mit unz hligen verschiedenartigen Anspielungen und der Benutzung von mythologischen, religi sen, filmhistorischen und andersartigen Motiven die Filme zu einer intertextuellen Fundgrube macht, deren Wahrnehmung f r das Verst ndnis der Filme jedoch nicht unbedingt notwendig ist, sondern ihnen verschiedene Verst ndnisebenen verleiht.9 Die tendenziell positive Darstellung fremder Welten und Al

Sensed a disturbance in The Force lately? This is whats been setting your midi-chlorians tingling. Seventeen Jedi adepts got together to probe the deeper reaches of the Star Wars epic. A hazardous quest philosophy is more risky than not letting a Wookiee win. Now their wisdom has been imprinted on sheets of extruded wood pulp and conveyed across hyperspace into our galaxy. Why do bad Sith nearly always tell the truth and good Jedi often tell lies? When is it justified to raise an army by breeding clones? If the Force must have a Dark Side, how can the Dark Side be evil? Why and how did the tyrannical Empire emerge from the free Republic? Are droids persons, entitled to civil rights? Is Yoda a Stoic or a Zen master? This is the Jedis most precious possession. The answers are all here. You may want to go home and rethink your life.""A real 'tour de Force'! Star Wars and Philosophy is a terrific read for any reflective person gripped by George Lucas's archetypal space saga. This 'council' of philosophers illuminates a wide scope of pertinent social, political, ethical, philosophical, and religious issues of great significance to both our world and the Star Wars galaxy.""

Über «Star Wars» lässt sich wunderbar philosophieren: Hat Luke Skywalker einen Ödipuskomplex? Ist der Jedi-Orden eine postmoderne Religion? War Heidegger ein Sith-Lord? Und wie um alles in der Welt kann man Wookies verstehen? Dieses Buch versammelt philosophische, kulturhistorische und politische Analysen: von der durchkomponierten Mythologie der ersten drei Filme bis zu den archetypischen Familienkonstellationen der Skywalkers; von der rätselhaften «Force» bis zum ambivalenten Umgang mit der «hellen» und «dunklen» Seite; vom Einsatz politischer Metaphorik und Bildsprache bis hin zur Frage nach der Ordnung der Gesellschaft in Klassen und Geschlechter. Das Buch zeigt, wie viel Philosophie in der Populärkultur steckt und wie viel Spaß es machen kann, mit «Star Wars» über Heidegger, Augustinus, Lacan, den Taoismus, Wittgenstein, den Kapitalismus oder die Gender Studies nachzudenken. Denn es ist ja ohne Zweifel so, dass kaum etwas so sehr zum Denken anregt wie ein ordentliches Weltraummärchen. Mit Beiträgen von: Jörn Ahrens, Julian Baggini, Yves Bossart, Pierre Cassou-Noguès, Wolfram Eilenberger, Tristan Garcia, Thomas Groh, Linus Hauser, Alexandre Lacroix, Alexis Lavis, Clotilde Leguil, Harald Lesch, Nils Markwardt, Baptiste Morizot, Tobie Nathan, Catherine Newmark, Tomáš Sedláček, Harald Zaun, Slavoj Žižek Das Buch entstand in Kooperation mit dem Philosophie Magazin.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi expands on the film to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content. From the ashes of the Empire has arisen another threat to the galaxy’s freedom: the ruthless First Order. Fortunately, new heroes have emerged to take up arms—and perhaps lay down their lives—for the cause. Rey, the orphan strong in the Force; Finn, the ex-stormtrooper who stands against his former masters; and Poe Dameron, the fearless X-wing pilot, have been drawn together to fight side-by-side with General Leia Organa and the Resistance. But the First Order’s Supreme Leader Snoke and his merciless enforcer Kylo Ren are adversaries with superior numbers and devastating firepower at their command. Against this enemy, the champions of light may finally be facing their extinction. Their only hope rests with a lost legend: Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. Where the action of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ended, Star Wars: The Last Jedi begins, as the battle between light and dark climbs to astonishing new heights. Featuring thrilling photos from the hit movie
