STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE

20th Century Fox, (Special Edition)

CAST Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Alec Guinness DIRECTOR George Lucas PRODUCER Gary Kurtz SCREENWRITER George Lucas

George Lucas' landmark, mega-blockbuster took audiences to a galaxy far, far away, and they have remained in that world there ever since. The film has defined the cultural mythology of our day - the hero's quest, a princess' dilemma and the classic battles between good and evil. The film also changed the way audiences watch movies by setting a new standard for visual effects, while never losing the human story that continues to capture the imagination of every new generation of young people around the world.
