Synopsis

The first Star Wars movie to be made - although now regarded as the fourth installment of George Lucas's epic sci-fi fantasy series - is one of the most popular and enduring movies of all time. Young Luke Skywalker sets out to follow his destiny as a rebel fighter, and with the help of robots R2-D2 and C-3PO, pilot Han Solo and Wookiee Chewbacca, attempts to rescue rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. The two things standing in their way? The Death Star - a giant battleship - and one of cinema's greatest villains of all-time: Darth Vader. A major entry into cinema history and science-fiction as a whole, this film plays a pivotal role in film history whilst also being a wildly entertaining space opera.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
