Everyone loved the original Star Wars, so when the special edition came out, Star Wars fans around the world went wild! With its digital sound and graphics, the original edition was yesterday's news. Millions of people came to see this bestseller. The main characters were: Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO, Darth Vader, Obi-wan Kenobi, Chewy and Yoda. It was made by George Lucas.

This movie made millions in the theater and is now for sale on video. George Lucas is also going to make three more movies by 1999.

In the first movie (there were three) Luke Skywalker is introduced to the ways of the Jedi. In his quest to become a Jedi Master he meets Han Solo and his friend Chewbacca, the Wookie. He also meets Princess Leia Organa and Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi, and his worst nightmare, Darth Vader. We won't tell you the rest, you'll have to watch it for yourself!

We give it an A+.
