On May 25, 1977, exactly 43 years ago, the Star Wars premiere took place in the United States, starting a whole franchise that would forever change the history of cinema and pop culture.

With its title later changed to Star Wars: A New Hope, or also known as Episode IV, it was the first film in a trilogy that, decades later, would win three past films even before its events, showing the origin of the villain Darth Vader , one of the most respected names of the genre.

Remember the trailer for A New Hope below:

The synopsis of the film illustrates the description of the video, as it says:

Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker enters the fight of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who lived for years isolated in the desert plantation of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke’s Jedi training when Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Princess Leia, leader of the Rebels, from the clutches of Darth Vader and the terrible Empire.

Recently, in December 2019, the saga had the release of its ninth film, the last of a third trilogy, called The Ascension Skywalker. All films can be watched by Brazilian fans on the Amazon Prime Video streaming platform, while access to Disney + is not allowed here.
