ROTTEN TOMATOES: Star Wars Special Feature
: "The year was 1976, and a young filmmaker named George Lucas was coming off of the critical and box office success of a nostalgic ensemble comedy called 'American Graffiti.' George's current project was an outer space adventure called 'Star Wars,' and little did the filmmaker know what he was building at the time. Immediately upon its release in July of 1977, 'Star Wars' became a bona-fide cultural phenomenon. And now, 28 years later, Mr. Lucas is about to unleash the sixth and final entry in the 'Star Wars' saga, 'Revenge of the Sith,' to a planet full of devoted fans, unhappy skeptics, and young newcomers who've yet to experience what the excitement's all about.
In an effort to help those neophytes get up to speed, and maybe remind casual fans of the various plot divergences, we present a 'surface overview' of the story so far. "
(That could have used a vertical crawl animation...)
