    I am researching several movies to find out what made them successful.
    What made Star Wars a hit, with an ever growing fan base, still after 30years since creation?
    Was it the story, theme, the charactors. What was it?
    Any comments you have would greatly help my research.
    Thank-You & Happy Holidays [face_clown]

    Well Cranie, that's a REAL easy question to answer, because all you have to do is look at what made each movie a hit:

    A New Hope: Something no one's ever seen before, plus Sci-Fi was big then

    Empire Strikes Back: Great story. And the bad guy wins! Definatly best plotline and best sequel out there

    Return of the Jedi: Two words: Slave Leia j/k the end of a great trilogy with an explosive ending

    Phantom Menace: The belief that it was going to be good. But well all know how that turned out...

    30 years since creation? Pardon me, but I don't recall SW being around since 1972 :)

    There's a simple explanation for what made it popular:

    It was better than Star Trek:D
