Star Wars Revelations is a film done and created by the fans. It is a film which is easily relatable if someone is a fan of the Star Wars, if they are not a fan of the series then they would not be able to relate to it. Star Wars was a blockbuster film which created a huge fan base with their very first movie and continued to grab people’s attention.

In the new internet era everyone has the opportunity to make it, and everyone is a spokesperson. What people say and put out on the internet will be seen, and the power of spreadability is greater than ever with the help of social media. “The social practices of spreadable media necessitate material that is quotable providing easy ways for audiences to be able to excerpt from the material and to share those excerpts with others and grabbable providing the technological functions which make that content easily portable and sharable (Jenkins et al., 188)”.
