A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…. A man called ‘George Lucas’ wrote a legend, STAR WARS. This all started by the book of Joseph Campbell, which George Lucas inspired from. ‘The Power of Myth’ was the name of the book. J. Campbell was born in March 26th, 1904 and died in October 30th, 1987. He was an Irish American mythologist,writer and lecturer. Best known for his work in ‘comparatibe mythology and comparative religion’. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience. His philosophy is often summarized by his phrase ‘Follow your bliss’. The book ‘The Power of Myth’ is six-part television documentary and originally broadcasted on PBS in 1988 as Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth. The documentary comprieses six one-hour conversations between mythologist Joseph Campbell and journalist Bill Moyers. This is how the book appeared then George Lucas, who is writer of Star Wars admired then inspired from the book. Then the journey was begun for whole universe. George Lucas wrote three parts of the movie with an unknown subject, there was something missing, something less about it. He filmed 1 – 2 – 3 a.k.a. 4 – 5 – 6 now. Normally, the quality of film was terrible because of that times techonology but not bad at all. It was like flying car if we compare to our modern time which happened in 1970’s and 1980’s. After people and whole World wondered about history he decided to write another sensational and real 1 – 2 – 3 series for story to include whole subject. So it was like 4 – 5 – 6 then 1 – 2 – 3. As we can understand from the time 1 – 2 – 3 had better techonology which was made after over 2000’s. It was my first movie ever so thats how i became a fan of Star Wars. It was like best thing for me in those years, when I was a child. The actors were different in whole series.

In real 4 – 5 – 6 George Lucas used some famous and some unknown stars for acting:

Mark Hamill – Luke Skywalker
Harrison Ford – Han Solo
Carrie Fisher – Princess Leia Organa
Peter Cushing – Grand Moff Tarkin
Alec Guinness – Ben Obi-wan Kenobi
Anthony Daniels – C-3PO
Kenny Baker – R2-D2
Peter Mayhew – Chewbacca
David Prowse – Darth Vader

Actual stars of 5:
-Billy Dee Williams – Lando Calrissian
-Frank Oz – YODA (voice)

Actual stars of 6:
-Sebastian Shaw – Anakin Skywalker
-Ian McDiarmid – The Emperor
-James Earl Jones – Voive of Darth Vader (voice)

Those are the most heros and villains who had conflict within and the main characters which are also used in 5 and 6. So the subject were known, and George Lucas had to write new beggining for it with same characters and he did so. He wrote 1 – 2 – 3 as ‘The Phantom Menace’ – ‘Attack of the Clones’ – ‘Revenge of the Sith’ with new actors and some new characters:

Liam Neeson – Qui-Gon Jinn
Ewan McGregor – Obi-Wan Kenobi
Natalie Portman – Queen Amidala/Padmê
Jake Lloyd – Anakin Skywalker
Ian McDiarmid – Senator Palpatine (also in old movies)
Ray Park – Darth Maul
Samuel L. Jackson – Mace Windu
And the 2th of the new journey also got new characters:

Hayden Christensen – Anakin Skywalker (grown up)
Christopher Lee – Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus
Temuera Morrison – Jango Fett
Daniel Logan – Boba Fett
Jimmy Smits – Senator Bail Organa

And the Most watched and The best movie for me also got few changes, Star Wars:Episode III – Revenge of the Sith:

Keisha Castle-Hughes – Queen of Naboo
Hayden Christensen – Darth Vader
Ian McDiarmid – Darth Sidious

So this was the Actors/Characters list of the Star Wars, and of course I’m supporting the Bad ones, as we call them ‘Sith’ in Star Wars. Now lets understand this legend more detailed. This Utopia has two sides and a few uncategorised cities and towns and people. The most known sides are:The Jedi Republic and The Sith Emperor Also understood from their names, we can sort out their ruling style, republic and emperor. So we can also understand which is good and which is evil within. There...
