Movies have been captivating audiences for over a century now. Throughout that time, the look and construction of films have changed, but the feelings that they create have not. From black and white and silent films to movies jumping off the screen in 3-D while producing award-winning soundtracks, the film industry has continued to build upon itself, never failing to amaze each generation of movie fanatics. The late 20th century was set slightly before the special effects seen on screen today were possible. That was until George Lucas got creative and created a franchise that doesn’t even need to be named. Film history is in a world of its own. From their early beginnings, movies have provided humanity with imagery that seemed to be ahead of its time. Every once in a while, one movie provides its successors with the next stepping stone in film advancement. It is argued that the Star Wars saga was one of the most pivotal aids in the history of film betterment.
