Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise created by George Lucas. The franchise's initial film, simply called Star Wars in its original 1977 run, was renamed Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope for the 1981 theatrical re-release.

Over time, Star Wars became one of the world's most popular entertainment franchises, spanning not only trilogies of films, but also animated television series, comic books, action figures, novels, and video games.
