Star Wars takes place a long time ago in a galaxy that is unlike anything modern society could conceive as being authentic. It exists in a time before Earth was even thought of. At the start of the movie, a civil war is occurring between the Rebel Alliance and The Galactic Empire. A leader of the Rebel Alliance, Princess Leia, stole plans from the Galactic Empire (also known as the Imperial forces) for the Death Star. The Death Star was a very heavily armed space station with weapons capable of destroying an entire planet. After stealing the plans, Princess Leia sent two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO, to the planet Tatooine with a copy of the plans in R2-D2's memory bank.
The droids are then captured and sold to a farming family. The nephew of the farming family was Luke Skywalker. Skywalker decided to clean the droids and triggered a message from Princess Leia requesting assistance from an Obi-Wan Kenobi. Skywalker doesn't know who that is but he does know of a Ben Kenobi. The next day he seeks out Ben Kenobi and Ben introduces himself as Obi-Wan Kenobi. He reveals to Skywalker that he was a former Jedi Knight. A Jedi Knight is a peacekeeper in the Star Wars galaxy. This is the point in the movie where some action begins.
Kenobi reveals to Luke that Luke's father, Anakin Skywalker, was also a Jedi Knight. Ben and Anakin fought together in the galactic wars. Luke is told his father was killed by Darth Vader. Kenobi gives Luke his father's light saber.
Kenobi views the message that the droid R2-D2 contains. In the message, Princess Leia begs Kenobi to take the plans stored in R2-D2's memory bank to the planet of Alderaan. Princess Leia wishes for her father to analyze the Death Star plans. Luke is asked by Kenobi to accompany him on the quest. While encountering some road bumps along the way, Kenobi and Skywalker are captured by Darth Vader, a leader of the Imperial forces. Darth Vader is confronted by Kenobi and Kenobi loses his life. Eventually Luke escapes capture, alongside Han Solo and Chewbacca. They make their way to the Rebel base and analyze the plans. A weakness in the Death Star is found in an exhaust port. The movie ends with Luke Skywalker destroying the Death Star.
In life, there is a balance of good and evil. Some people might view this balance as God and the devil. While those of the galactic world within Star Wars (1977) would view this balance simply as the force. What is the force exactly? The force can be viewed through two different lenses. In Star Wars (1977) there was both a good and evil side. The good side, known as the light side, and the evil side known as the dark side. Both the light side and dark side have a role within the society. Without one, the other can not exist. The role of the individual within society is very important to how the balance exists. The individual aligns him or herself to either the dark or light side and their purpose or role in society is based upon their moral compass or emotions. How they...
