"STAR WARS" AT 35: DEPARTURE TO DESTINY...



Thirty five years ago in 1977, the young and brave Rebel Alliance leader Princess Leia Organa (played by Carrie Fisher) undertook a bold and dangerous mission to become custodian of stolen plans for a top secret Empire project: the Death Star. Upon successfully achieving the first stage of her mission and beginning its second aspect (to retrieve the pariah Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan Kenobi, from hiding, so as to aid the Rebel cause against evil), she would unfortunately be tracked to the isolated desert world of Tatooine by her enemies: the sinister agents and Imperial Stormtroopers led by the evil Lord Darth Vader. The story of STAR WARS, created by George Lucas, had spectacularly begun and a legend was soon born, capturing the hearts, minds and imaginations of audiences young and old. Artist Chris Trevas's beautifully rendered image for STAR WARS GALAXIES showing Leia saying goodbye (sadly for the last time) to both her adopted father Bail Organa (as had been played in the Prequels by Jimmy Smits) and her adopted homeworld of Alderaan, watched by Captain Antilles, is a wonderful and touching interpretation of important events leading into that classic first film.

This year, as the saga hits a new respected landmark, keep a regular eye out on the AFICIONADO blog as we celebrate the classic original STAR WARS in all its majestic and inspiring glory...
