Beginning with A New Hope in 1977, George Lucas created a pop culture phenomenon with Star Wars. Estimated at over $42 billion, it is now the second highest-grossing media franchise behind Pokemon. The series takes place in an unknown galaxy where humans and aliens co-exist with a mystical element known as “The Force.” The Force separates two factions in the galaxy: Jedi who embrace the light side of the force through good, and Sith who embrace the dark side of the force through aggression.
In 2012, Walt Disney bought Lucasfilm to continue production. New characters like Rey, portrayed by Daisy Ridley, and Finn, portrayed by John Boyega, have become the focus of the latest films, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
