Star Wars is a series of movies, video games, books, and television shows for nerds and other fucks. There's an empire and a rebellion, some shitty prequels, and a sequel. The Star Wars universe has several eras: a classic Empire era, a Prequel era, and the infinitely superior Old Republic era. TJ is known for loathing the prequel trilogy, according to TJ, it's only redeeming quality lies in the character of Emperor Palpatine.
Star Wars is known for having a deep and engaging expanded universe (unlike Star Trek) that is filled with far more interesting and better written characters than anything the movies ever had. Several good examples are Revan, Darth Bane, Kreia, and Bastila Shan (which were all created by the same guy). Along with characters like Thrawn, Talon Karrde, and Mara Jade. The EU's best collection of stories deal with the era thousands of years before Episode 1. This time period chronicles several wars between the Sith Empire vs the Jedi & Republic. It is significantly more in depth and interesting then those films.
Some gems from the Expanded Universe include:
- The Star Wars Holiday Special
- Ewoks: The Battle for Endor
- Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure
- The Crystal Star
- Spider Legs Darth Marth (actually this is AU canon)
- Skippy the Droid
- The Jedi Prince Series
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars Movie (also AU canon)
- The Sun Crusher (actually cool)
- Mount Sorrow
- Leia becoming a Jedi
- Ziro the Hutt
- Zombies (which is awesome)
- Jizz (Space Jazz)
But considering everything in the EU, it's a net positive.
The butthurt is strong with the Trekkies every time this franchise is mentioned because the little dorks don't like to admit that Star Wars is far superior to Star Trek, both in structure, character development, and especially effects
The Force Awakens
The Force Awakens was the latest Star Wars movie released in December of 2015. The peasants did an entire spoiler-filled discussion on episode 186 of DP. Since the internet and trolls exist several faggots didn't want the movie spoiled for them and hid under their basements and masturbated to Jar Jar until they saw the movie.
- The Beast loves to watch Star Wars after fucking all 5000 of his bitches.
